  • Why are there no seagulls in France?

    And of course there are seagulls in France, it's bordered by the Atlantic Ocean, the Mediterranean sea, the Channel and the North Sea with a total of around 3500 km of coasts in the European part of France (because France also has parts in the rest of the world, adding more coasts).

It was criticized by many and construction of buildings in central Paris of more than 7 floors are now prohibited.

  • Why is paris, france called city of fashion?

    Best answer: There is a long history of fashion in Paris and France (starting certainly in the 17th and 18th centuries with the kings' courts being very "fashion" and having a big influence on fashion all around Europe). The French fashion reached a top in the 19th century and beginning af 20th, but still is very important in the world -maybe number 1? don't know. Many types of clothes were invented there.
    Today, it is still a world capital of fashion (with Milano, London, New York, Tokyo), difficult to say if bigger than the others, competititon is hard! Italian people say the capital of fashion is Milano, Uk people say it's London, and French people say it's Paris...(but I think there are more exhibitions and/or events, and for sure there are more companies and business, see below).
    Big Paris names for fashion are Yves Saint Laurent, Dior, Chanel, Lancôme, Louis Vuitton, Givenchy, Hermes, Kenzo, Guerlain... And these are only the big names.
    The big thing today is that many fashion companies are French ownned, even if giving the image of being from somewhere else (Gucci, Loewe, Acqua di Parma, Alexander McQueen, Giorgio Armani, Ralph Lauren, Maybelline NY all belong to French companies, all of them based in Paris).
    These are big global groups generally with a brand that looks local in each important country for fashion.
    And if you look at your Calvin Klein perfume, it is made in France (or at least all the ones I had), as many others (I don't really know why, maybe there's a special know how in France...)

  • Going to France without knowing the French language?

    Best answer: You should learn a few basic phrases for the sake of politeness, and to butter the locals up. For example: Bonjour - hello / good day / good morning Bonsoir - good evening S'il vous plaît - please Merci (beaucoup) - thank you (very much) Je ne comprends pas - I don't understand. Parlez-vous anglais ? - Do... show more
    Best answer: You should learn a few basic phrases for the sake of politeness, and to butter the locals up. For example:

    Bonjour - hello / good day / good morning
    Bonsoir - good evening
    S'il vous plaît - please
    Merci (beaucoup) - thank you (very much)
    Je ne comprends pas - I don't understand.
    Parlez-vous anglais ? - Do you speak English?
    Au revoir - goodbye

    The French are on the whole less proficient in English than many other European countries, but as others have said most people involved in the tourist industry know enough to get by, and many are fluent or near enough.

    However, the average French person on the street often takes the attitude of "Why should I speak English in my own country? They should learn French", as they are on the whole very proud of their language. This can often be alleviated by you starting the conversation with your basic French and then asking to switch to English. They will appreciate your effort, as well as your recognition that French is the local language, but that it would be doing you a massive favour if they would speak to you in English! As a guest in their country, it's all about playing the charm offensive ;-)

    Bon voyage !

    Pans. Cheese grater. Sieve. Kitchen utensils
    Embroidery silks and cross stitch kits. Tablecloths and other house textiles.
