This site allows you to type in any word/words/phrase and translate it into a number of languages. Could be useful (and fun) for those not fluent in French. Many/most people (depending on the area) are pretty good with English, especially if they want you to spend money with them for some reason (merchants, banks, transportation, etc.)

Not thinking that you might all want to do "tourist" things between soccer matches and shopping or eating, here's a few sites to look at before you go to Paris:

City Net, general info with many links to things and places in Paris including maps, restuarants, Metro & train info, etc. and a calendar of current events -

LeGourmet, a guide to restuarants by neighborhood (Eiffel, Champs-Elysees, etc.) -

WebMuseum, a guide to tours (guided or on your own) and major sites in Paris -

Guide to the Metro - general info + route planning, maps, etc. -
