Romney speaks French on campaign trail

Republican Presidential candidate former Gov. Mitt Romney (Mass.) showed off his French language skills on the campaign trail in New Hampshire. 

Romney sat down with a voter at the Chez Vachon diner in Manchester Monday and asked, "are you of French-Canadian heritage ... you speak French?" 

The former Massachusetts governor then explained in French that his accent would be different because he lived in Paris in 1966.

Romney spent 30 months in France as a Mormon missionary and learned to speak the language fluently.
