sid Posted August 3, 2013 Share Posted August 3, 2013 Strange, I thought Mauritius was English, Creole and French speaking. Hardly a French colony now as it's been a British colony in more recent times. I can understand why Brits would be more comfortable there though, at least most people speak English. Hardly relevant to this particular forum in any case.As for speaking French here in France, I wouldn't worry about it too much, just be prepared to have a go and do the best you can. Any attempt is usually appreciated. The formal grammar can be difficult, especially if you don't understand English grammar (which seems to be taught less and less these days); the terms may be confusing. I found that spelling was even more difficult, and getting accent markings in the right place and so on.Fluency will only really happen if you have no English contact, but certainly you can do enough to make yourself understood.
