Moving to France

Moving from one place to another, especially moving to France it’s a huge task. There is a lot that needs to go in planning several days before we move. Not all those who move to France would know enough about the country. We try to learn day-after-day only after we start living in the place practically. However, there can be a few vital information that we can gather through websites and by speaking to friends and relatives in France that will come in handy sometime in the new place.

Before you leave

Inform all the utility providers such as gas, water, electricity about your move and the date till which you will require their services. Make arrangements to get transfer bills or certificates on utilities that are required to be produced at the new place. Choose a removal service provider and instruct them clearly on what to load and what to leave behind. Write your name and address on the packed boxes legibly. In case the van loads stuffs other than yours it should be easy for identification without having to open the boxes.

French! French! French!

Let French be your breath if you need to relocate to France shortly. Be it workplace, residential area or hotels in France, if you ought to be looked upon and given a reply, you will have to utter French, even if it’s in the worst form. If not anything else, pronounce ‘Bonjour’ right to make somebody listen to you. The French respect those who try to learn their language and culture. Don’t sweat out if it’s hard to catch the language flow in the beginning. To speak perfect French, it could take 30 years for a non-native. Yet, it shouldn’t stop you from mastering the language. Consciously try to converse with friends and colleagues who meet, even, if they know English. Cut-off English TV channels so that you can listen to more French at home.
