The French are every bit as interested in learning about Anglos as we are in understanding them. So who better to tell us than French Google. It may not be scientific but it is certainly insightful. See what it had to say about how the French view Anglos.

Want to know what the French really think about us Anglos but were always too shy to ask? Well who better to tell us than Google.

The internet search engine auto-fill function may not be the most scientific approach, but it does give us a good idea of Gallic preconceptions about the English, Americans, the Scottish, the Irish etc. 

It works like this. When you type in the first words of a question into Google the search engine offers to complete the sentence with guesses based on what other people searched for as well as your online profiles.

So in order to see what the French think about us Anglos we went to French Google and typed in “Why are Americans…?” "Why are the British..." or "Why do the Scottish…?" etc.

Google offered up some interesting answers. See the results below. Are they myths or reality?
