In an interview with BritishExpats.com, Véronique Martin-Place, author of Finding your Feet in Chicago: The Essential Guide for Expat Families (Summertime 2012), tells us that “the education and school culture shock I encountered when my daughters started school in the local system in Chicago prompted me to write this book”.
“I thought this relocation was going to be an easy one for three main reasons: it was not my first time abroad, I knew the language of my host country and last but not least I thought there weren’t so much cultural differences between France and the US. I was completely wrong.”
Véronique also discusses the main cultural differences between France and the US and shares some tips for living and working in Chicago. Find the full interview here.
