Also my cheche seems to believe that English besides macedonian is spoken in tourist areas, I don't think thats true could someone confirm?

Top sights in Ohrid:
- Old town and traditional restaurants & lakeside cafes
- St. Sophia cathedral
- Samuel's Fortress
- St. Jovan at Kaneo
- St. Naum Monastery

Bitola:
- Sirok Sokak is as good a place to start
- The clock tower

For the links above, you can find/research more there some things/places you can tell them to do or visit. You can also check youtube videos.

I think the young people will/should know decent english in general but I'm not 100% sure (that's at least my experience/broad conclusion). In general, I found that middle age people and older don't know english, or speak very BROKEN english. I remember more than a decade ago there were some German tourists in Skopje, at the main bus station terminal, and they were asking a lady, (it was like a sandwich/hamburger shop) who must've been in her 50's, a couple of very basic things, like do you have ketchup and napkins and she didn't understand it at all - so I stepped in and helped out.
