In the university the students spoke English, but outside the school you had to know enough to get around. Try speaking their language first, and they'll work with you-they thinks its rude for americans to go over there and speak English expecting everyone to know what you're saying (and even if they know English they'll pretend they don't until you try to speak the language).

Very good. Having lectures in French everyday helped to tune my ear in. By the end I started to get my head round their approach to language.
