France (of course!) Belgium, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Monaco. The border areas around these countries will also have large communities who speak French. Also, Spanish and Italian have related historical roots to French (similar pronounciation, vocabulary, grammar rules, etc), and so simpler French sentences/ words/ phrases can sometimes be understood by people who speak these languages even if they do not speak French.

They are 15 people 7 of them speak English 8 off the french 3 people speak none how many of these speak both English french?
== There are 7 people, not including the french. The french question doesn't make sense. If it said, "3 of the 8 french people couldn't speak none," that would be clearer. So, there are 7+5== 12 people who can speak english,while the remaining(which is 3) people can't speak english. Simple as that. Simple addition. ===
