Remain in France Together

Just days after the 2016 referendum, RIFT (Remain in France Together) was created on Facebook as a closed group that would attempt to grapple with the news that the UK would leave the European Union, and to provide support and information to its members regarding their Citizens’ Rights in France. Many people at that time were in shock, and had no idea how it would affect their lives in France.

Leigh Chandler, a representative of RIFT, gives an overview of the group’s activity and how their volunteers are supporting group members and Britons in France.

French dressing?! A Guide to Clothing Terms and Vocabulary in France

The French are famous for their fashion sense, and if you want to be à la mode, you’ll have to buy some clothes and accessories in France.
