Interpreters

Post by Wormwood on Wed Dec 10, 2014 10:17 am

Hi all - can anyone recommend (presumably by pm) an interpreter (preferably Creuse based) for those odd interactions with officialdom where schoolboy French just will not do. Rolling Eyes

Cheers in anticipation

Hi Wormwood
What type of "interactions with officialdom" are you talking about? Before engaging in the expense of an interpreter, post your questions on the forum and see if we can help. Things like re-registering a car etc are not that tricky and there are people here who will be happy to oblige (for free).

Even having the basic essentials, or schoolboy French as you call it, will help you through the initial difficulties. In my experience, those that come to live in France determining to make a go of it and, particularly, learn the language, are the ones who stay the course.

Good luck.

Hey tocyvi I was just attempting to cover all the bases I guess - and I didn't want to presume on peoples good nature by expecting help for free.

Probably have yet to get my head around the fact that the pace of life will be much slower and that problems can be foreseen, cogitated on and a suitable response part formulated in advance.

I hope (and fully expect) that my French will improve as things go on - even if that initially means just acquiring slang and learning how to swear under my breath. Embarassed
