In a community that’s all about expat living in France, from foie gras to Bastille Day, the participants of the expat forum France can find fellow expats and internationally minded locals to receive trustworthy and up-to-date responses.

From business etiquette to language skills: The Expat Forum France leaves no Question unanswered

If you require even more information on expat topics like expat institutions and clubs in Paris or local infrastructure in Lyon, you could also browse our France Expat Guide, another useful resource in addition to the expat forums. Moreover, in our World Forum you can talk about international politics, intercultural competence, intercultural anecdotes and other general expat issues. However, for expat assistance on all local matters - from business etiquette to language skills - just join the InterNations France expat forums.
