My nephew is moving to Nancy shortly. He will need to fly to the UK (Birmingham/Midlands) for work periodically.  Any ideas as to the best airport in the region gratefully received!

Is there anyone that lives across the border and commutes to Strasbourg? I'm wondering how easy it is as far as travelling times are concerned. How does it work with the taxes? Is accommodation and cost of living really a lot cheaper across the border? Thanks for any feedback

No one seems to know yet what Brexit actually means, least of all the British Government, however this link provides some clues as to how British expats may be affected.http://www.ecfr.eu/page/-/ECFR_176_-_HOW_BREXIT_COULD_HURT_EXPATS.pdf

As we've had a lot of enquiries since the Brexit referendum, I thought I'd point out our How To (updated yesterday) on how to acquire French citizenship:https://www.angloinfo.com/strasbourg/how-to/page/strasbourg-moving-residency-french-citizenshipIt should be helpful to both UK nationals and anyone else interested in getting a French passport.Madge

SNCF is still on strike so expect cancellations and delays to train services through at least tomorrow (29 April).Air traffic controller are also on strike so some airlines have cancelled some of their flights, primarily into and out of Paris. If you're supposed to be flying today contact your airline directly.Some bus drivers and other transport personnel are also on strike so bus services may be cancelled or delayed. Good luck out there.https://www.angloinfo.com/strasbourg/how-to/page/strasbourg-transport-public-transport-strikes

Just checking that all my Brussels friend are safe and sound seeing as I couldn't get hold of many of you by phone due to the lines being saturated. Give me a shout on here. Thanks.

Hello, I am writing an essay on the subject of the integration of British expatriates in France. I have created a short survey for my research. If you are British and live in France, I would be extremely grateful if you could complete this survey online here: British expatriates in France survey. It will only take a couple of minutes and all responses are anonymous. If you wish to know the results of the survey, or have any questions about my research, do not hesitate to include questions and your email address in one of the text boxes in the survey. Thank you for your time and input, Eva.

Hello, I am looking at how I might be able to relocate to Strasbourg from the UK and while I am learning French, it is very far from work-ready! Has anyone had any success in finding English speaking work, or know of multinationals with Strasbourg offices?

bonjour à tous de Strasbourg I will be visiting Strasbourg during the months of November and December and need advice on what I should pack in terms of clothing and winter clothes. I am Canadian and so my natural instinct is to pack a parka but I know the weather in Stras is mild compared to Canada. With that being said, I am also looking for a coffee buddy! Any advice is greatly appreciated. Merci beaucoup/ thank you very much!

The secondary school that our daughter will go to next year has refused to offer a vegetarian option for her at their canteen.  An internet petition has recently been launched by MP Yves Jego, mayor of Chalon-sur-Saône, to campaign for the right to a vegetarian school dinner option. The petition has already gained 130 000 signatures out of a desired 150 000. If you feel in agreement, please would you sign the petition and then share the link on your social media networks.  https://www.change.org/p/pour-une-alternative-v%C3%A9g%C3%A9tarienne-obligatoire-dans-les-cantines-scolaires  ps  I was questioned on another Anglo Info whether I was 'forcing' my views on my child. Of course not, I replied as I am not even vegetarian, just an occasional free range meat eater, it is my daughter who has chosen for herself from her own experience and what she has read and she does not want the school to force her to eat meat.

Hi, we have finally got round to unpacking some of our boxes and have lots of books that we don't have space for.  They are all in English and mostly non-fiction, although there are a few fiction as well.  Would anyone like them?  There are 10 boxes, free to a good home. We are renovating an old farmhouse near Bouxwiller - if anyone wants a cup of tea and a chat in English we'd love to hear from you.

When people take things to the tip that are in perfectly servicable order, do the people that work there salvage the items and re-sell them. I wondered if there was a way of getting a very cheap bike that someone might have discarded

I'm seriously considering doing my Masters degree in France, but am a little confused as to the structure of it. Does the Bologna process mean that all Masters degrees in France are 2 years long and not 1 year?When I was on my year abroad in France a few years ago, I had friends who were doing one year master degree programmes , but all the research that I'm doing now suggests that it has to be two years. Can anyone advise me on this? I'm intending to do political science if that helps.Merci d'avance ????

After the death of my last Samsung tablet I have come to appreciate that I need one in my life. I don't want to just go and buy one off of the internet though, I want to be able to feel and play with it first. Is there somewhere I can go to do that? Most places I;ve seen have the electronics boxed or if they are on display are turned off (or fake).

How come Strasbourg was chosen as the 'Capital of Europe'? Was there a reason behind it?

Really distressed to learn of the accident that's killed the French olympians for that television programme. Such a tragic accident.
