?Tools|Language|Set Language=French, Default' will set the spell checker to French for all _new_ documents which are based on the normal.dot (maybe it is the current template, did not check this)

To check a few paragraphs in an english document, make sure you highligth/select/mark the applicable text before choosing French.
