Struggles Of Not Knowing The French Language


So today I’ve experienced the struggles of being in a foreign country without knowing the language. I had to apply for french health insurance and open a french bank account, its hard to do that when you don’t speak there language or the staff do not speak English very well, which is understandable. The only problem with setting up insurance and opening accounts in France is everything is a long process, they ask for certain documents in my opinion that is not necessary. Having this experience only motivates me to pick up French faster!

I’m using two apps to learn French which is Duolingo and Learn French Quickly. Youtube also helps. The best way I learn and remember is practising with someone who is French.

I’m loving the life in Paris as everything I need is on my door step. Literally like a 5 minute walk I have a market, Monoprix, Beauty stores, plenty of pharmacies Clothing stores, Shoe stores, Restaurants, Cafes, Patisserie’s literally everything I need. Travelling long distances is not needed.

Moving to a foreign country is not easy but if you stay positive all will work out well 😄
