hello or should i say bonjour? Im in the middle of a study for A2 french coursework and have decided to read the subject of immigration in france. I know from my own experiences of living in Brittany, i chose largerly to engage with british culture as a way of staying true to myself..outside of school, i watched british t.v, read British/American Literature and listened to anything but french music. for my study im interested in how other british ex-pats of all ages deal with cultural differences. i'd be grateful for any in put :)
MY 5 year old has alot of trouble speaking English and I believes has a speech problem which runs in my family. Every professional person I have spoken with tells me it is because he is bilingual (we are a bilingual family, we speak English in our home, my husband is French) and it will get better and dont know if this is true. are there any speech experts or therapists out there who may be able to help me figure out how to help him? Or do you know of an English speaking speech therapist? I have been to see a French speech therapist but she looked at me like I was crazy and said he was fine, this is because his French is much better than his English is at this point, he needs help expressing himself in English. It is not a major problem but I would like to get him some help nonetheless. thanks in advance I am in dept 35
Having seen Mayenne 53's success with asking for girls names suggestions, i'm jumping on the bandwagon for ideas for a boy. Parents Brits living in France full time... all ideas gratefully received for a name that will work in both languages. We didn't have a problem with our daughter but it seems more challenging for our fils! Thanks, Jo
The Connexion newspaper is looking to speak with British expatriates who have enrolled at university in France. We are doing this to make a comparison between the way student life is financed in the UK and France, in terms of fees, grants, loans etc. Please contact Tony Todd on 04 93 08 31 03 or reply to this post if you would like to contribute to this story. Thanks tony Tony Todd
Are husbands allowed in the operating room? MY sister in law (who is French and lives in France) is scheduled to have a C-section on Wednesday and she doesnt know if her husband will be allowed to be in the operating room...I was wondering if any one out there has ever had a scheduled c-section in France and if the husbands are allowed to go in? I keep telling her to just ask but she is shy to ask!! she doesnt want to bother the dr! I am pretty ssure that in the US fathers are definately allowed in but she thinks here in France they are not allowed in. thanks!!!
Is anyone flying from Manchester to Brest for the School hols, at Easter? LCC schools finish on the 4th April and go back on the 21st April, not Easteras usual. My grandson wants to come over he is 14 and has only flown once to Florida in 2001. He is saving to pay for himself, so would anyone help by taking him on and off the plane? Of course it is not a cert yet, it depends on his savings. Dorothy
