Many years ago I heard/read Strine defined as "North Australian", with the "Australian" pronounced as "Austrilian", shortened to "Austrine", to "Strine"....
Don't know how accurate that is...

Oh how I dream of speaking schoolboy French!

At most, I think what you need is a campsite with English speaking staff/owners... which i would estimate is in the clear majority. From my own limited experience, it's been 100%, from about 20 or so different sites (inc Belgium) and a fair few being "out in the sticks" as opposed to being in touristy areas.
Absolutely no need for it to be "English owned", in my opinion.

I can just about give off the impression that I am polite, and most certainly cannot string a full French sentence together, and I have yet to encounter a problem(in the true sense), despite never having set foot on an English owned site on French soil.
Yes, there's been the odd spot of confusion, but it always seems to end up with a smile, and a thumbs up, from both sides!

It may be a good idea to download the Google Translate app to your smart phone for emergencies (if that's an option), but even without that, I'd dare to suggest you are stressing over nothing!



I'd agree with Mucker. I had a D grade in my school french exam (I was utterly useless, could count to 20 & knew all the colours; that was about it) every campsite weve visited in France have spoken English and in most cases excellent english was spoken
