I am wondering why English TV is expected in France, especially in a 2 star hotel. After all, we dont show French TV in the UK or in the US.
Why do English speakers assume that it will be spoken everywhere they go?

Oh, that's an easy question. English the 3rd most spoken language in the world behind Chinese and Spanish, but generally whether in Asia or Europe etc... English is widely spoken as an international language! Where as French is not even in the top ten most commonly spoken international languages. I must also disagree because in Australia , America and the U.K. (and many more counties) there are actually French programs on television including documentary's, news and films! Many other countries I have traveled in , and stayed in 2 star hotel always have English channels even if it is only the two main news channels CNN and BBC. For example, I am now in Vietnam and there are many English channels on the television, it is the same in most of South East Asia, there is not French Channels here! Why would there be?
In 2013 more than 80 million people visited France, so I don't feel that requesting an English channel even in a two star hotel is too much to ask!
My question to you would have to be "why do the French have such an aversion to speaking English"?
I stayed in the south of France for 3 months early this year and it was very funny how many French people expected me to speak their language and would not try English (even though they knew some) I have now traveled to almost 54 countries, am I expected to speak each and every individual language from every country I travel to? I don't think so.....Only France. Interesting!
Does this hotel take 17 year olds to stay without parents? My boyfriend and I are looking to stay but we are both 17.
