Hi do any of the Public lending libraries have an Anglophone section to borrow English books. If not are there any other facilities to borrow books in the Lyon area?

Hello there   I am currently doing some work for a gentleman who is looking to move to Lyon and buy a house.  In the meantime he is looking for an appartment to rent.  I wondered if anyone could give me a lowdown on the different areas in Lyon - those which are good, those which are best avoided.  He has a car, and would like to be within reach of a supermarket.  As I live in the Correze, I am unsure about Lyon and so would welcome any advice. Many thanks Alison

Hi all! Does anyone have experience getting US passport photos taken for a newborn? I am trying to decide if it would be better to take them myself and have them printed somewhere or have a professional do them. Thanks!

Does anyone know if France offers some kind of language classes for immigrants that are free or either a reduced rate. I'm trying to improve my french at home, I'd like to take classes but I don't have much disposable income at the moment and all the courses I've researched are quite pricey. Cheers

My son has to get some bits of furniture out of his flat in the 3rd. -  cooker, fridge, table etc. But he doesn't have a driving licence to hire a van. Anyone know of any house clearance firms that might take all of this stuff?

Has anyone come across a French tutor to teach French to English speaking  children? I am looking for a tutor to teach French to my 2 English speaking children, aged 7 and 8 years. They barely have any French at all and are starting at a local French school in 2 weeks whilst we live  in Bron, Lyon till the end of the year.  We would be interested in some fairly intensive, regular tuition to get them up to speed and to continue during their schooling. Does anyone have any contacts or helpful hints? Thanks Carolyn

Hi, Hope you guys are well. I've received an offer to move up to Lyon in February for work, which I have accepted. I'm Ciaran, 26 and originally fromDundee in Scotland. I have been living in Nice the last 18 months! I have never been to Lyon before, hoping to get a bit more insight about the city itself! Don't worry I've heard nothing but good things ;) My offer is to play music with a French band on their latest tour, which I'm very excited about! I play bass guitar, I'm also interested in the possibility of a little job on the side! In the past I have done Administration work, tourism, public relations & a little bit of bar work! If anyone can guide me in the right direction you would have my eternal gratitude! I can also send a CV on request in French or English!! I also found in Nice one of the best ways of getting to know people was attending the regular groups, I would be very interested in this in Lyon too. Anyway, any replies & information I greatly appreciate. A très bientôt, Ciaran

Hello Everyone,I would like to know if any anglos would be interested in a writer's circle.  Such circles already exist in Paris (Shakespear&C°), and elsewhere for English-natives who are advanced writers or just dabbling with the experience.Having organised such groups in the past, it can be amusing for those who love writing to those who think that they have no talent for it (but do!)If anyone is interested, feel free to contact me at liba.m18@gmail.com
