[00:09.97]Did the young man speak English?
[00:14.77]I had an amusing experience last year.
[00:18.74]After I had left a small village in the south of France,
[00:22.97]I drove on to the next town.
[00:26.32]On the way, a young man waved to me.
[00:30.08]I stopped and he asked me for a lift.
[00:34.12]As soon as he had got into the car,
[00:37.40]I said good morning to him in French and he replied in the same language.
[00:43.86]Apart from a few words,
[00:46.15]I do not know any French at all.
[00:49.67]Neither of us spoke during the journey.
[00:52.82]I had nearly reached the town, when the young man suddenly said, very slowly,
[01:00.13]'Do you speak English?'
[01:04.13]As I soon learnt, he was English himself!
