Moving to a new cultural environment is a challenging experience.  Even when you know the do's and don'ts of French culture, behaviors, the communication style, the way of doing things may still feel strange and unfamiliar to you.

To really feel comfortable in the French cultural environment, you need to understand the underlying 'why' that shape the behaviors of French nationals in the social and working environment.  To ease your daily life, you need to rapidly get familiar with the French administrative structure in all aspects of your life.  To enjoy your new lifestyle you need to learn about practical hints and tips on the French/Parisian way of living.
