I just don't have the patience to deal with non-English speaking destinations. That's not racism... just pragmatism.
Fortunately for English speakers, English is the language of business like French is the language of diplomacy. English is a common lingua franca and you will find that many well educated people around the world speak at least some english.

Also the star rating system for hotels, four star hotels require bilingual staff, 5 star hotels multi lingual staff. English is usually one of the languages spoken. There's a reason why international business travelers tend to stay in these higher quality places.
