We all know that the French you learn in the classroom isn't the same as the French you hear and use everyday in France - but what's the one thing you wish you had known before moving?

Your answers may form the basis of an article to share your tips with other French learners.

You can also hear the team from The Local talking about the language tips they wished they had known in the latest episode of the Talking France podcast. Download it here or listen on the link below.
