Re: French School in Montreal

I heard that. But I agree with the rest of your post. Quebecois and Parisian French are different, but no more so than North London and Newcastle. Oops.

Re: Brits leaving UK for EU

As ever you're confused. The EU extended the Article 50 deadline which required a Withdrawal agreement originally within 2 years. Eventually a WA was agreed, first by May but that fell apart as a...

Re: Working in France
