How is it to travel as non french speaker?
Claire, the Travel Planning Geek says
Well, the main languages are French and Creole.
Like in many countries, if you stick to touristic places, you will find people who speak English.
Not as many if you go off the beaten path.
And not all menus will be translated, so having a translation app on your phone can help.
For the rest, smiles and gestures do make wonders.
