Does anyone know of either an english or english speaking mechanic within 25k carcassonne.
yes i know an excellent one, contact me off list and i have his details
The garage opposite Intermarché supermarket Esperaza / Couiza - the owner/mechanic there is half english so completely fluent
Not sure if it is the same guy that runs that garage, Tasker.... that was sold a year or so back to a guy called Laurent I think..
My advice is to avoid trying to communicate in english, find a good garage near you and brush up on your vocab before you go!
Thanks for your advice , my French is pretty good but with regards to the workings of a car it is not .Anyway I have now found a local guy who is English and very good .
Cool, gald you found someone.
However, I will add that I know it is intimidating when you feel your french is not quite up to it.... I have been there, believe me.
But I honestly do think that the more you HAVE to push yourself to communicate in french, the better your french will get... and quickly!
Hi!I would love to have the information on your mechanic. The ones we "practiced our French on" had to replace the turbo in our car 3 times in 5 weeks last summer... Since the warranty only covers the car/parts for the first replacement, the rentals got nasty expensive, not to mention the inconvenience.My daughter now manages quite well in French, but it's still a crapshoot to get a good and reliable mechanic. You know...
Hi riccris do you mind if I ask the number of the mechanic you found? I'm looking for one too!
Could I get that number of your mechanic?
