Similarly, Excusez-moi; parlez-vous Anglais? is how you get a French person to speak English.

The full handshake sequence is usually longer that this.
They will first reply with "Non", often coupled with a wounded look.
Then you have to start speaking in a very broken French, ideally with a monstrous accent (though this comes naturally).
And only then they will suddenly re-discover their long forgotten English skills, which will turn out to be quite decent.
