"French identity is not that hard to achieve; if you speak French, you feel French."
-Adam Gopnik, Paris to the Moon
Of course he writes on from there, and the quote is slightly out of context (he's writing about the national French soccer/football team), but I think that it's quite true. If you speak French, you feel French, even though you may have an accent, and may not be fully accepted into French culture. It's quite hard to explain, but I think that some of you out there know what I mean...
