Just hoping for some tips, advice, opinions...
I've just arrived in France and my level of French is better than basic but not great. In other words, I can speak the language but I can't hear the reply very well. I had a horrible English virus during the week therefore I had to rest up. I used this opportunity to listen to some French television (which I enjoyed) to help tune my ear to the pronunciation / sounds etc. Sometimes I would put on the French subtitles if I was struggling to follow what they were saying.
Anyways I really want to achieve my goal on this chapter of my life and speak French very well or hopefully fluently. I appreciate that it takes time and effort. I desperately need a job and I thought working would bring my French on leaps and bounds etc.
What is the best way to apply for a job in France?
Is it through a website or newspapers?
I am slightly tempted to approach businesses in person with my C.V. Is this method effective in France?
I am happy to take the most basic of jobs so I can get to grips with the language.
