Hello franceinlondoner

"After the Berlin Wall came down I visited that city and I will never forget it. The abandoned checkpoints. The sense of excitement about the future. The knowledge that a great continent was coming together. Healing those wounds of our history is the central story of the European Union".
David Cameron

Why choose a bilingual nursery school for your child?

Choosing the right school for your child is probably one of the most stressful and difficult decisions you will ever have to make as a parent. So many things have to be taken into consideration: the type of school, the distance from your home and the time your child will have to spend travelling to and from school every day, the number of pupils per class to ensure that your little one will have as much attention from his teacher as possible, the type of education the school provides and whether you can afford to send your child to a private school.


How Brexit may affect the French living in the UK?

A week after the vote to leave the European Union, it is clear that Brexit is going to impact everyone in the UK. The country’s political parties are in mayhem, the currency has plummeted and there has been a noticeable increase in the number of reported xenophobic incidents. Although life for all Britons will have been changed forever, this is even more the case for EU citizens living in this country, many of whom will have to plan ahead quickly if they want to remain in the UK after Brexit.
