Hi Anthony...welcome to MOW...you sound WAAAAY so enthusiastic, I know you'll drive your colleagues out of their minds, which is OK provided they're ladies...

Been there twice. I'd say it is closer to Germany considerably more than to France

Welcome, Anthony,

You'll probably want to find more francophones in Moscow at some point. There are French language expat forums on vivreenrussie.net.

Though here people here are a lot more easy-going when it comes to action beyond the scope virtual discussions.. Under "action" I mean "meeting up, organizing various events, charities, etc."

After having spent several years in France surronded by French only, I can tell you that sometimes you can feel an urge for a break, want to relax and speak your mothertongue to someone able to understand it.. Also, it's usefull to know people who come back and forth, should you have a sudden craving for your favorite product you can't find where you are, you might need help, advice, etc.

I agree with Inola. I'm trying to find Portuguese in Moscow and it's not easy! It's good to speak your native language and so far I can only do it when colleagues come for meetings... hope it will change. Sadly I forgot almost all my french, so I can't help our friend here :) Salut!
