Carolyn Reynier Writer Carolyn has lived in Nice in the south of France since 2006. This month, she talks
to British expat Amanda Garnham who found happiness in Gers (page 32): “Amanda’s inspiring story proves that if you’re prepared to make the effort to integrate, you can be happy
wherever you choose to live in France.” Alice Phillpott Alice’s love affair with France and the French language started at the age of seven, when she started practising her speaking skills on family holidays in France. She loves the lyrical quality of French, so it seems particularly fitting that her vocabulary article this month relates
to the French language (page 56).
