Enjoy your Lille Expat Experience

"Rijsel", an alternative name hinting at the Flemish part of its local history opens its intercultural doors to you, beginning with its attractions such as the "Vieille Bourse", now a picturesque market, the traditional celebration of France’s Bastille Day, to savoring a dish of foie gras. The InterNations network is a place made for the Lille expat and offers insider tips and opportunities to ensure that you can make the most of your life as an expat in France. Our members are looking forward to offer their advice and knowledge from experience when you come across one of the many questions about the life as an expatriate in Lille, from ʺHow proficient do I have to be in business French?ʺ to ʺWhich essential etiquette rules should I know for business lunches in france?ʺ
