  1. “Paris, the capital city of the country France” deserves to have a comma after. Also, where are your sources? Please cite. I’m aware that many people are not raised around English speakers, which is the excuse most people use for their mistakes, but if one is to learn a language, at least be committed to learning it well. Those who have published works must cite their sources and the least you could have done was read it through or run it through a spell checker.

  2. Unfortunately the fact that the English spoke French for 300 years is not correct. Following defeat in battle to the French in 1066 many noble men came to England from France, they were given positions of status and obviously spoke French, however, the vast majority of English people continued to speak the variation of English in use at the time, commonly referred to as Middle English.
