Parlez-vous français?

Just how much French is still spoken in Louisiana? Cajun French took a big hit when the school system outlawed it and teachers began to punish students for speaking it. Within New Orleans you may not get much opportunity to practice speaking...but many businesses still use French to their advantage in advertising. Here are some examples from Magazine Street and the French Quarter:

Rue de Magazine

On St. Charles Avenue

Le Vieux Carré
