I am living in Chicago for the time being, but will be moving to France for university in August - not for study abroad, but as a regular student. I've been hoping to find local French expats to learn more about France and get in some language practice, but without much luck. I did some asking around at the Bastille Day celebrating in Lincoln Park, but without much success. Haven't found much information online, either.
I've only been living in Chicago for several weeks, so I still don't know much about what's around. Perhaps some of you who have been here for a bit longer might have some ideas. I'd really appreciate any insight you could provide.
