EnglishForum equivalent in France

Is there an English speaking forum (similar to EF) covering France?

A previous thread on this topic is over 10 years old and some of the links are no longer valid.

Thanks

It became an Echo chamber where a few preferred posters talked to themselves & died a slow boring death. Déjà vu anyone?

Echo chambers are boring.. Especially if they are negative.

OP - we do have some bits on France here but there are not that many Swiss moving there, French moving the opposite direction are more frequent. Let us know how you like the expat forum in France.

You could become a founding member and have the opportunity to start all over again with topics about dishwasher tablets and brown sugar.

Re: EnglishForum equivalent in France

I've noticed quite a few countries have a sub reddit which acts as an expat forum.

Do you have any links that are in English? The reddit one I found was in French. My head hurts enough understanding German without adding more pain to the mix

The Facebook page A New Life in France is very active and in English. Just warning you that it is 99% Brits. The Brits also have a FB page called RIFT (Remain in France Together) which is very active and started when the whole Brexit thing went down.


Other than those two pages, everything is mostly in French. Almost every village has its own FB page or website where we chat, spread info, etc. Remember, France is not Switzerland. The only people in France who call themselves ex-pats are the Brits who have 2nd homes here.
