使用地铁的时。。。很少有听到任何英语记录的公告,没有自动售货机购买巧克力或薄荷糖。通勤者曾经在平台上抽烟,很少说一句话给他们的乘客。偶尔有人会看到有人带着一个索尼随身听,但音量被保持在“我不想打扰你”的水平。一般来说,乘客更多地相互尊重.....当他们离开地铁时,他们会等一下,让他们的门打开。他们还是做!

停留在同一线路上12或15站将允许我观察不同类型的乘客上下车:圣米歇尔St. Michel*的学生,在Bourse的银行家。然而,在这个公务员,游客和流浪音乐家这个熔炉中,还有扒手。可悲的是,这是一个真正没有改变的元素。今天,闭路电视摄像机已经安装并记录7种语言的消息,建议乘客注意他们的个人物品。特别是中国游客,以携带大量现金而闻名,往往成为目标。 (*St. Michel are Bourse are station names).

作为一个总部在巴黎的外籍教练,我定期教育外国人在这个美好的城市的安全。如果您计划来巴黎,并想要我的pdf文件“保持安全在巴黎”的副本(提供英语和普通话),请访问我的博客blahblahblah.com,并要求副本! 在巴黎有一个愉快的假期/住宿!
It was rare to hear any recorded announcement in English and there were no vending machines to buy a chocolate or mints. Commuters used to smoke on the platform and rarely said a word to their fellow passengers. Occasionally one would see someone with a Sony Walkman, but the volume was kept to a "I don't want to disturb you" level. In general, passengers had more respect for each other.....when exiting the subway they would wait a moment to keep the door open for the person behind them. They still do!

Staying on the same line for 12 or 15 stations would allow me to observe the different types of passengers that got on or off : students at Saint Michel, bankers at Bourse. Yet among this melting pot of civil servants, tourists, and wandering musicians, there were also pickpockets. Sadly, that's one element that really hasn't changed. Today CCTV cameras have been installed and recorded messages in 7 languages advise passengers to watch out for their personal belongings. Chinese tourists in particular, known for carrying large amounts of cash, have often been the target of theives.

As an expatriation coach based in Paris, I regularly educate foreigners on safety in this wonderful city.

Have a great time/stay in Paris!
