How to Become a French Expat If you're someone who believes that living in France is like vacationing in France, you might want to leave this page now. Life abroad isn't all market-hopping, croissant-eating, wine-slurping, terrace-lounging and baguette-chomping, surprisingly enough. That's part of it, but there's another side which requires much more patience, flexibility and attention to detail; the side that involves paperwork, rejection, more paperwork, waiting, more waiting and perhaps, if you’re lucky, success. I say all of this because over the last year I've received many emails from readers asking for tips on how they can pick up their lives and move abroad to get their own piece of the French pie. "How can I become an expat?", they ask, hoping it’s easier than they imagine.

Using French Proverbs When learning a foreign language, we need to understand that we cannot always express what we want to say as a word-for-word translation of our mother tongue. It is perhaps surprising, then, when looking at French and English proverbs, to find that many of them are in fact direct translations of each other. At the same time, there are a few that have the same implied meaning but are expressed in a totally different way in each language. For example, whereas in English we must not count our chickens, the French must not sell their bear skin ..... Here is a list of a few common proverbs with their translations.
