By whom?

Work your Way to France is an initiative of Maarten Stroes and Lonneke Grobben.

"We moved from the Netherlands to France with our family at the end of 2010 after having studied and worked in France for many years in the past.
Since our emigration, Maarten has taught medical French courses to doctors who work in France, while Lonneke guides foreigners settling in the area on behalf of a number of French authorities. 

We found that the people we taught or guided were largely faced with the same barriers, questions and ambiguities.  We have therefore developed an ambitious programme where we meet as much as possible the needs of anyone who emigrates to France."
