Does anyone know how and where to get a 5 month old child a photograph for her passport? The photos from cubicles would not work, she has to sit on a seat without any parent, she mustn't smile which is very difficult to get a 5 month old child not to smile - any ideas would be appreciated.
hello mums, I am looking for a mother and baby group in and around Port-Louis/Lanester/Lorient. I am a french national with a 1 year old daughter and would love to meet up with other mums. We could go for coffee/tea, walks, swimming. Our kids could play together. I have travelled a fair bit and I am always happy to chat about anything :) feel free to get in touch. Thanks Laurence

Hello, We're a friendly young & cheerful Irish/French family who have just relocated from Burgundy to the Cap Sizun in Brittanny. I am Camilla, Irish, 22, and my partner is Richard, who is French and 25. Together we have two children. We recently moved over here because we love Britanny and living near relatives and the sea. We now would like to get to know other English or French speaking people in our area, with our without kids. We love socialising, to have dinner together, go out for an evening or a concert, etc. I am fluent in English, whereas Richard is still learning English, but he's very eager and willing to learn ! Looking forward to hearing from you, Camilla & Richard

Hi, I'm organising an English reading group for babies and toddlers at the library in Mauron (56), about 45 minutes west of Rennes. We'll have English-speaking volunteers read stories and converse with the parents/childminders and with the children, doing some nursery rimes etc... It's a way for French children to become accustomed to the English language, and for children of international parents to meet other English-speaking children. Every Wednesday at 10.30 AM (except the third Wednesday of the month), starting the first of March. It's called "Bébés Babel"!I'm a Dutch mum, fluent in English, I'll be there with my little girl (almost one year old), looking forward to meeting anybody interested!
Hello everyone,I have a friend who lives in Vannes and who works from heroffice at home. She is French and is looking for an English Nanny to look afterher son while she works. Does anyone know an English Nanny who would work inVannes? Being able to speak French is not a requirement. Email me for more details.
My family (me,husband and son) are looking to move to Le Sourn from England. I've been looking into education and it would seem children go to school at an older age (6?). Ideally I would like my son to go to a nursery or pre school to learn French immediately. I do, however, want to send him somewhere there are English speaking teachers as he doesn't currently speak a word of French and I worry it will be too much for him. Has anyone had to go through this process? Would most lower education have English speaking support? I'd also like my son to go to an International school once he's of age but there doesn't seem to be anything local to Le Sourn or Pontivy? Any advice would be greatly welcomedMany thanks,Savina
I'm American and my husband is British. Our baby will be born in France, but from what I understand, she will not be granted French citizenship as neither of her parents were born in France. My question is, how do we request British nationality for her? Does anyone happen to know if she can have both American and British citizenship? Thanks in advance, I'm not finding very clear information on the US and UK embassy websites.
My son has been accepted at Lorient university in September but only needs accomodation until end of January. 2018 as he then goes abroad for the rest of the year. I can't find anyone that will accept a student for only 6 months. Everyone wants a year's rent. Do you have any ideas or maybe a room to rent. He is not eligible for the "bourse". I am a novice at this. Thanks.
My daughter requires a second set of books for her French BAC and unfortunately her friends in the same class dont have their exams at a convenient time for them to share their books with each other.I'm trying to avoid buying a second set of all the books required, so thought I'd try the library, but the local ones are closed until the weekend, so I can't get the answer from them yet and the nearest large library wants 24.50€ to join, so I could just rebuy the books for that.I believe in the UK you can order books at a library that they don't stock. Has anyone ever ordered a specific book in a french library? What is involved in that? Do you just need to give them an ISBN no? Do they charge for this service?Thanks for reading.
