You’ve dreamt of emigrating to France. Paris was on your mind all the time. Now you are here. Your dream has come true, but you are feeling blue.

Your biggest dream seems to have turned into a nightmare and you are on an emotional roller coaster all the time.  You have been dealing with unfriendly people, constantly harrassed and running people in the metro, the French are speaking too fast for you to catch their speech and, on top of that, you are dealing with the legendary French bureaucracy that is driving you nuts!

Do not worry: I am feeling you. Being an expat is very challenging. I have been there. Although I mastered the language, getting settled in London was far from easy, and, believe it or not, I’ve been dealing with tons of bureaucracy as well from the English side.

I can help you transform your expatriation into a success. How?

 

bureaucracy

-first of all, by helping you acquire more confidence in speaking out. The method I am using is based on very concrete situations that you can apply immediately after the lesson.

-by helping you to deal with the “cultural shock”: the French are quite different from their European neighbors and from English speaking countries. Good food, good cheese, good wines, for instance, play a major role for many French citizens. Being Latins, most people are more laid back and like taking time after their work. The “art of living” or ” art de vivre” is very important to the French. Parisians, by the way, are not representative of France as a whole, so it is important that you travel a little bit out of Paris ( if you can), in order to discover various traditions.

-by helping you with your administrative paperwork: you will be more confident as you get acquainted with specific formulas and administrative slang

-by increasing your cultural knowledge about Paris and France and giving you some infos on shopping in different arrondissements.

-by working on pronounciation and intonation and by stimulating your conversational skills.
