Helen Posted May 15, 2008 Share Posted May 15, 2008 Hi AllMy husband and I have always wanted to move to France, and are determined to do it within the next few years. We have two small children to consider also.....I can speak French fluently but my husband does not. I am not too concerned for myself working, but my husband is not a natural linguist -but is willing to learn. He is, however, an Architect - which I feel should stand him in fairly good stead on some level! Am I being a little naiive to assume he will be able to work with very limited language skills intially?? We have had various other ideas such as about just running gites/B&Bs etc - but capital may be an issue as we do not want to take out a huge mortgage or end up watching our capital draining away in renovation costs, and the seemingly massive social costs of setting up a business in France are putting me off a little? My other idea was for him to offer english speaking architectural services to ex-pats - whilst I could do the translation/liaison works?I would love to hear from any families who have moved out to France with similar fears and concerns, or to hear any advice....ThanksHelen Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
