Frequently Asked Questions

Do you give language lessons?

No, not in Paris. None of the associations gives lessons anyway. Most provincial FGB associations, however, have practice workshops and a few do have French workshops for English speaking members wishing to improve their skills in conversational French.

Are your activities in French or English?

As the vast majority of our members in Paris are French, we consider that one does not need to be fluent in English to be interested in British things. Most of our members however understand and speak English since they are often former residents of the UK, diplomats or academics. We do occasionally have activities or talks in English.

I have a legal/fiscal/residence permit problem to solve. Can you help me?

Those problems are beyond our expertise and we would advise you to get in touch with the nearest British Consulate.
