  1. thank you.... I feel alot happier now thinking my son can stay at the maternell with his friends and A school that has been very good for my daughter with great teachers of which 4 can speak English. they dont speak English to my kids always french. But when my kids ask something in English at least the teacher understands what they are asking and can then help them. and because of this my daughter now 5 has really excelled in learning French. . thanks for all your help everyone.
  2. thanks for all the replies. My son is in Moyen and my daughter grand. but next year she goes to a private school. we have not moved yet will be in 2 or 3 months. I know the kids can stay until the next school year change. Im going to visit the mayor on Saturday in the new village. will be interesting to see what he says about his school. plus I have to think that my son will be getting another 7 months of learning French so will have had almost 2 years of it under his belt...... so will be ok going into a school that no English exisists?

  7. Hi everyone..... just wondering if there are any mums out there west of Paris around the Ramboulette area. Im moving over with my husband who is fluent in French.  he has been working in Paris during the week and returning to us in the UK on the weekends.  so we decided to move to France.  we have a 3yr old and a 10 month baby.  The whole move is scarring the hell out of me as I dont speak French Im worried about my 3yr old fitting into the local French school.  I just wondered if there are any English speaking familes I could at least open a line of communication with in that area????  we are moving to a village called Villarceaux outside Thoiry. lisa muir

  9. Hi there, we are looking at a property near Uzes in Gard and I would love to hear from any brits that have moved there specially mums with young kiddies.  My husband speaks fluent French I only speak a tiny bit!!!  we have a two year old and a baby on route. Hoping to move over there in January so our little one will be 3 and the baby 7 months.  I only know about the area through the internet. Im worried about having a young baby and not being able to speak the language specially if I need a doctor or God forbid a hospital!!  Do the health centres in that area speak English?  Its going to be hard to begin with so I really will need some support of friends, that I will hopefully meet that already live there or around that area.  I hope this forum will help me out. Any advice would be appreciated!!! Lisa
