Want to know how to shop like a Parisian? Understand the school system in France? Figure out how to cut through the red tape of banking, insurance, visas? The American Church in Paris presents its Bloom Where You’re Planted program, which can help answer those questions and more, all in one day of seminars and workshops on 4 October.
This year’s program kicks off with a snapshot look at Paris architecture and history by the erudite Paris tour guide Peter Caine, and a guide through French cuisines by Patricia Wells, award-winning cookbook author, teacher and restaurant critic. Participants will get tips about smooth transitions from cross-cultural adaptation expert David Lebovitzl, and share some laughs about expat experiences with the comedy improvisational team, the professionals.
Afternoon workshops are organized around the themes of work, family and daily life. But being a new expat can be a lonely experience, so networking moments takes place all day, around the morning coffee, during the lunchtime expo or at the closing wine reception. These are the perfect opportunities to exchange cards, share experiences and ask questions you may feel silly asking elsewhere, like which flour do I buy to bake cookies, how do I get tickets to the opera, and why do school crossing guards wear white gloves.
