My name is Eric (I am 39), and with Annabelle (37), Axel (8), Dorian (6) and #3 (minus 4 months), we are to move to Adelaide by the beginning of January.
Well, yes....we have a terrible flaw : we are French.
Anyway, I found this forum very helpful, for there are so few French people in Adelaide. I hope you will welcome us despite our terrible fate and the fact we will win The Crunch ...
Of course, we know very little of Australia and Adelaide, and I was the only one able to visit for 3 days the capital city of SA. But, I had a great job offer with full relocation, so, it was a once-in-a-life opportunity, and we seized it.
As there is no French school in Adelaide, we will refer to PIA advices for good primary schools, and we do not know where we will live, except that Brighton, Grange, Henley seems to be fine places. As for rent or buy, we will see when in the place.
Thanks for any advice for newbyes like us.
PS: if that can help my case, one of my cousin married an English woman.
PPS: if that does not help, think of us as future Aussies
