Subject: Toulouse Help
Date: Thursday, September 22, 2005
Name: Patricia
Message: I am a USC and my husband is a British citizen. I have been living in the UK for 6 months now and my husband has just called to tell me he's been offered a promotion in Toulouse that is tons more money than he makes now. I don't speak French, have only been a handful of times to France ever, and have no idea what to expect. Are there any American expats in the Toulouse area who can offer me any advice at all? (literally any, as I am totally clueless and floundering a bit). Thanks.

Message I'm sorry, I forgot to ask if anyone can give me any information on the approximate cost of a 1 or 2 bedroom flat in the area? I know that costs may vary due to location, but just a general idea would be helpful.

Message Cheers for your information- we'll be moving to Toulouse in 10 days, so it is a quick move. I won't be working whilst there, so it will be nice to meet people and make friends. Thanks again.

Message I'm an American in Toulouse, I've only been here 4 months, but I think there are hundreds of us here. I've met a dozen myself. Look for a group called "Americans in Toulouse", they put on get-togethers, they can recommend relocation specialists, or French classes through the Alliance Fran├žaise. I went to a luncheon yesterday and next Monday I'll go to their book club. Toulouse is a great town, friendly, beautiful, nice weather, lots to do on the week-ends, and lots of anglos. Go to http://www.toulouseangloexchange.com/ The lady who runs the anglo exchange has just moved back to the States, but it looks like she's still running it. And the food is great, did I mention the food?! If you like cooking you'll love the grocery stores here, really nice! Restaurants are good too. Good luck!
