Parlez vous frances? Well, that's pretty much the extent of my French. Is there anyone out there who could help me with an international transaction? I am currently trying to sell one of my Alembic basses. There is a potential buyer in France. However, we are having a hard time communicating. Please contact me if you can help with the details of the transaction or assist with translating.

Ah oui ...on est nÚ multi-lingue ici.
There is this saying: "there are only two people who can make themself understandable all over the world: jews and flemish".
Brother Alain is one of those rare non-flemish Belgians who also speaks 3 languages.
It's one of the advantages of being a very small country.

I had a friend in California that is a non-flemish frenchman who speak 3 languages. He grew up in the border area with Belgium and it has a large flemish population as I understand it.
