My integration was excellent, thanks to the teacher but also to the rest of the group. I felt welcome and the atmosphere was always very friendly. The reason I believe stays in the outgoing attitude of the participants, that share the same difficulties and pleasures of being expats in France, looking for new friends but also for practical tips, suggestions, recommendations on how to navigate in a new culture and environment. Participants offer the same curiosity and often live the same experiences – for example in my group all of the participants were looking for a job in France and this was a common topic that united us even more.
