We put together a little booklet with information about our family and our move from London to France. It also contained fun French facts, pictures of our village and popular French food, and a list of French words that the families could learn. We also included a bookmark with the French flag and colouring pages of the Eiffel Tower, a postcard from the area and leaflets of local activities. We bought little French books from the supermarket and filled little bags with French sweets. The French flashcards came from Little Bilingues (which you too can download for free!) and a copy of the The Quercy Local would give them an insight into the English community in area. We sent some Euro coins, stickers, and a CD of some of our favourite French songs.
It was great fun to put together! Stay tuned over the next couple of weeks as we will let you know what we received from America, South Africa and Spain! If you're interested in signing up to the programme you can do so here.
