Random Fact #14

Random Fact #14: If you read aloud from a French document at l'Institut de Touraine and you pronounce an English name with an American accent, you may, in fact, be reprimanded and asked to adopt a French accent with which to pronounce the name.

Note: Well, jeez. Not trying to be disrespectful or anything, but I speak English and I know how "Amnesty International" is supposed to be said. I generally try to pronounce foreign words the way someone who speaks that language would, but they don't appreciate that here. It's a good thing I can pull off a French accent...
