Hello!

Please, can you share your experience/knowledges if just with English we can enjoy Gabon? I mean without single word in French.

Thank you!

    A friend of mine has been working at Port Gentil since October 2006 and he only speaks english. I'll admit, he is a very personable fellow, but that aside, he seems to be doing alright, despite any communication barriers.

    I will be going to Port Gentil in the near future and will give you my opinion after having been there myself.

    Cheers,

    I found very, very few people spoke English in Libreville. Luckily I was with my friend the entire time who is fluent in French, so he basically translated everything for me. I wasn't even able to check into my hotel without his assistance because none of the staff spoke English.
