Hello there! My name is Rene Trombley, and I am a research assistant for Mount Royal University's Language Development Laboratory, which is based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. We are looking to recruit 3-6 years old English-speaking monolingual and bilingual children from around the world to participate in our online word learning study! We want to see if exposure to different sentence structures when speaking more than one language will help children learn new words. The session usually takes less than twenty minutes per child, and will be held through a scheduled “google meets” meeting. We will screen-share various pictures and audio and have the children identify the pictures as if they were playing a word game. If you are interested in having your child participate, please follow the link below to fill out the consent form and for more information! From there, we will email you and schedule an appointment. Feel free to comment here, PM me, or email me at rtrom126@mtroyal.ca if you have any questions. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfV8-ebI8qB01gvnG7-4Vr5FSsVBY8JC0osCdpNJBlX0hKcuA/viewform?usp=sf_link

Hi, we are moving to Paris from South Africa later this year for at least 5 years.  Our family speaks only English but we are wanting to enroll our kids in a bilingual school as they are 3 and 6 years old and should pick up French pretty quickly. I will be working in Issy-les-Moulineaux. Unfortunately my employer will not be providing support for school fees so the British or Paris international schools are not an option due to costs.I would be very appreciative of recommendations for good bilingual schools in Paris for my kids.Stay safeNerissa

Hi, Having recently enrolled our son for "la grande section" of the "maternelle", wondering if anyone has any recent experience of this bi-lingual private school please, preferably but not limited my son's age group (5 years old), also keen to hear from parents of children of all ages given the school covers nursery to the Bac.  There would appear to be very few reviews on the web, just one French forum with mixed reviews, but no anglo-phone reviews of the school. We were comfortable with the school when we visited, just strange to see so little web traffic about it other than the official listings. Thanks.

Hello, trying to get some advice or comments from students and/or parents of children you have attended or currently attend the Collège/Lycée International Honoré de Balzac, Paris 17e with an English section.  The college/lycee is situated at 118 boulevard Bessières, 75017 PARIS.  What are your experiences, advice etc?  I am looking to move from the south of France to near Paris this year and I am considering enrolling my daughter who is 12 and currently in 5eme at a local French college.  We have been in France since January 2012 so still learning the language and adjusting. If you know of any other international colleges which you would recommend in Paris or around, which would work well for an English speaking child who is learning French, please do write.  Ideally I would like my daughter to get immersed in the French language and education system and at the same time keep up the English side of the education so that she becomes bilingual and experiences the multicultural style of life.  Thank you in advance for any comments.

Hello there! My family and I are moving to the St Germain en Laye area just before this school year begins and I would like my 6 and 8 year olds to continue with their piano lessons. Their last teacher was young and dynamic and it would be great if we could find someone similar. Any recommendations would be much appreciated! Many thanks,

Hello everyone! My family and I will be new to the St Germain en Laye region and would like to continue our kids' piano lessons. Their previous teacher was young and dynamic and we would like someone similar. We would prefer someone who can give lessons at home. Many thanks for your help!

Hi! I will be bringing my teenage daughter and her friend to Paris for the 2018-19 school year. They don't have enough French to enroll in school for the advanced grades so they will be schooling through independent study. I am looking for other ways they can get involved while living in Paris. Specifically they are interested in continuing to play basketball, but they are also interested in ballroom dancing and choral groups. Any advise about where to start would be appreciated. The apartment we will be staying in is in the 14th.Warmly, Colleen

Hi, We have been living 15 years in London where our 3 children were born and educated in an international environment. Now they are bilingual (they had a 50/50 education in English and French so far) and we must go back to France, surely Paris. We are considering international sections/schools and came across Lycée International Balzac, Porte de Clichy. Anyone would have an insight? Anyone has tried this school for college or lycée? I have 2 children to place in 6ieme and 4ieme.Thank you for your help

My boss urgently needs a new Au Pair to take care of her 9 year old daughter. Duties would generally involve school drop off/pick up, some light house work and meal prep. The au pair would have their own studio located near the arc de triomphe as well as a navigo pass and some "pocket money".I have signed up to an au pair website but so far not had much luck. Can anyone advise where I might find someone? If you know of anyone please get them to send me thier CV.Many thanks!

Hello, Can anyone answer my question please on visiting UK? We have booked to visit my family in UK this April and whilst ive got my British Passport, my childrens passports have expired and for the last two years we have just used their French Identity Cards.  However, im wondering now if its still ok for French citizens to do this.  I cant seem to find any info in this regard.  My husband has his French passport so i assume no visa is required for him?
