French-English keyboard, how do I change it (question mark)

I am in the process of switching to a new laptop. It is an Acer Aspire 4520. My problem is that at the moment it is typing with French accents so I now have no backslash é or question mark É ... everything is accents. While I would like to be able to go back and forth when I want, I am wondering if anyone out there can tell me how to do that.  
Thanks!!!

Another way to fix this problem

Some PCs have a little keyboard icon in the bottom right corner of the screen (near the clock)- if you click on it, it gives you language options.

Mine

My keyboard hates me and must have a magic button somewhere where it resets the keyboard to French.  
As Jodi B said about the icon--it is on the bottom right of my screen and it is easy to reset to english. It is just that I have to do it 6 or 7 times a week at least and I never turn my computer off!!.

I've been wondering what that icon was for, lol.  
I accidently switched my keyboad to french last week, but i just had to turn it off and on and it reset itself.  
This'll be much easier. lol
