I love this video because it shows so many things. The man answering the question or refusing to be asked a question in English is Sebastien Chabal , the best French Rugby player (it is hard not to love him). France lost yesterday to England in the semi-final of the Rugby world cup. But to come back to the issue, is Chabal rude? Yes, but he is right even though if I had been in his place, I would have answered the question and then asked the journalist if he spoke French. Anyway, the fact is that the French are very sensitive when it comes to
their language the French language especially when foreigners refused to learn or to even try to speak it when they are in their country. On the other hand, I know that the French are less charitable than Americans (it is unfortunately less and less true) with people who don't speak French well even though it is a more difficult and less flexible language than English.
