We are looking to re locate to France and would like to know how we can get a job without currently speaking much of the language. I am a 43 year successful Retail Regional manager with many years experience in the High street and have many transferable competencies. My partner has many years experience in working with children with learning difficulties and is currently also doing a degree on O.U in childcare. We have a three year old daughter also who is desperate to learn French Can anyone offer some advise as to where we can look? We do not necessarily require work in our current fields but are looking to downsize and get a better quality of life together away from the Rat race? Love the countryside, would consider working alongside a growing business ventures, just need an opportunity and we can supply the rest! sounds familiar i know.. Any advice or leads would be great? Thanks Neil Neil Waterhouse

As I am sure you have heard, Madeline McCann went missing in Portugal well over a week ago and I am trying to do my bit to help. I am a member of Anglo Info in Brittany, I am trying to use this forum and its helpful members to spread the word of her disappearance. Please could as many Anglo Info members in Midi-Pyrenees, download the "Help Find Madeleine" poster and put it up where possible in windows, in shops or wherever it could be seen. Hopefully, somebody will see it and provide information which may lead to her safe return. The link below takes you to the poster - http://www.thesun.co.uk/article/0,,2-2007210886,00.html There are more recent posters also available on The Suns website and at www.sky.com/news Thanks for your help Duncan

"Le Cassoulet" is obviously a winter meal. It is rich and tasty. Full of the ingredients that will keep us in shape throughout the winter. Every French person knows that it comes from Midi-Pyrénées. Toulouse, Castelnaudary and Carcassonne, all claim to be the place where the best Cassoulet can be found. I think it is Castelnaudary !   cdf

While the primary purpose of The AngloINFO Forum is to discuss "Life in the Midi-Pyrénées, in English", there may be times when you wish to exchange views on other subjects with fellow Forum members. This is the place for those off-topic postings... -----Forums Administrationforums@angloinfo.com
