If you are currently living in France or plan to move to France (especially to work as an English teacher), I have written several articles on my experience in France. I moved to France in September 2006 to work as an English Assistant and decided to stay for a while. Originally, I had planned to stay for 8 months and then move to Australia to start my PhD, but I quickly discovered that 8 months would not be enough time and I ended up staying for nearly 5 years. I accomplished a lot over the years and learned many valuable lessons about life in France, so I wanted to share them with others who are thinking about moving to France. I've written a few guides for expatriates in France to help with French bureaucracy, especially for non-European Union citizens. The information on these pages may not be 100% accurate since so much depends on your location in France and which civil servant you are dealing with on that particular day, but it should give you an overview of what to expect. As a disclaimer, please keep in mind that this is just my personal experience in France, and yours may or may not be anything like it.
