What is the implication of French being a (Beta) language? Is it going to change a lot? Are the topics still not finished?
Run your mouse over the topics in the skill tree. About half-way down, notice the popup includes the words "coming soon!"
Just tell anyone you meet that you are sorry for your accent, but you either "learned french from a ßeta" or "only learned french (ßeta)." I'm sure they will be understanding, if they don't understand.
