Default Hi, Newbie here from UK now in Toulouse!

Hello all

My family and I have just moved from the Midlands to Tournefeuille nr Toulouse in France. After the initial honeymoon period we're now settling back into work (for my other half!) and school starts next week for our 3 eldest children - I'm a SAHM with our youngest.

This is an opportunity of a lifetime for us and we're all throwing ourselves whole-heartedly into our new lifestyle but I'm sure there'll be snags along the way.

Looking forward to chatting on here from those who have 'been there and done that' and can offer any advice :-)

Best, Helen

Hello Helen...welcome to BE.

We have a very lively crowd of people who post in the France Forum. I am sure they will be only too pleased to share their experience and advice on life in France with you. Why don't you pop over there take a look around and say hello?

If you have any problems finding your way around the rest of the site Ka Ora is the concierge for the France forums...he will act as your tour guide and help you find your way around BE's many forums.

Any problems or complaints should be addressed to a moderator. Mitzyboy is the moderator for the France forums but if he's not around any mod or admin will be pleased to help you.

I hope your enjoy your time with us.

Hello and welcome, Helen!

It does sound the opportunity of a lifetime. As someone who went from England to a place where they speak French as well, I'm thinking I should have gone east rather than west.

I look forward to seeing you post in future.

Best,
Christian

Hello and a big welcome to BE.

Excellent information can be found in the BE Wiki, not forgetting the Living and Moving Abroad forum that will help you, another set of great help is the permanent threads at the TOP of each forum, they are very pertinent to that particular forum and makes sensible reading.

Moderators deal with any problems that arise such as inappropriate posts, spammers etc, you will find their names at the bottom right hand side of each forum's index in bold font.

Please contact me if I can give you any further help.
