  1. Hi there, You can only board at Grand Air from 4eme. As places are at a premimum I dont think they would look too kindly at giving up a place to someone for six months in the section. I have hosted students from abroad for the school before, I think nowadays you have to find your own host family. Maybe you should just find a normal college near Calais that has boarding facilities, if you wish to improve her French. There are some companies who organise these type of exchanges? I do think though its the best way for children to improve languages, the French do it all the time. Often french children at Grand Air would go abroad for six months to improve their English. Another downside to sending her to an international section is that she will naturally stick to the English speakers, which defeats the object. Lorraine
  2. Steve, Have you thought about contacting many of the Irish and UK holiday Camping companies who have campsites all over France. Many take on mature couples these days to do the maintenance work on the mobile homes? It will be for the season, but will give you a good idea how it all is over here? Lorraine
  3. Thank you, looking at this its one fifth of month pay brut for the first ten years then thereafter one fifth plus two fifteenths.
  4. Hi Its possible over the coming months OH may loose his job through economic reasons. Anyone know the uptodate Statutory Redundancy pay here in France? Is there a minimum and maximum? We know he will be entitled to 80% of his salary for two years unemployment benefit, but what is the lump sum payout? Lollie 44
  5. I have always found Hertz the cheapest in the UK, just make sure you book through the English website!
  6. Hi Anyone using Orange OPen, TV/Internet/Phone plus mobile. As we have a fixed line plus three mobiles between us it looks like this would be a cheaper option for us. Lollie
  7. Maybe they could meet and talk with them via Skype? for one visit, and surely taking time out between now and June will not be so difficult for a second meeting?
  8. Not true, I have a Tesco Credit Card registered to my address here in France, my statements are also sent here. I often shop at Tesco online and have it delivered to my sons at University over there or to frineds or family ready for us to pick up when we are visiting. Maybe you mean the Tesco Clubcard.?? Lollie
  9. Any suggestions for a few nights away, over New Year, that will include a New Years Eve dinner/dancing and bedroom?? Within a two hour drive of La Baule, perhaps Brittany, Loire, Vendee?? Lollie 44
  10. When my 20 year old son went to apply for French Nationality, he was told that he could not keep his British nationality and have French nationality so he walked away. True or not??
  11. Looking at next summers schedule for Dinard it seems they have, Leeds and Bradford to Dinard next summer instead of Nantes. Back to the long drive north .........
  12. I suspect he has pulled out. http://nantesatlantique.forumactif.com/t2980-programme-ryanair-hiver-2011-2012 Oh well good while it lasted.
  13. Can anyone confirm if Ryanair have pulled out of Nantes? I cannot find flights to the UK/Ireland at all for 2012.
  14. Its after October I cannot see any flights forever!!!
  15. Is Ryanair not flying to mainland UK from Nantes this winter? Leeds and East Midlands both seem to have been taken off. Anyone heard or seen anything? Lollie 44
