Bordeaux Women's Club

The Bordeaux Women's Club was created at the end of World War II by American military wives living in Southwest France. They sought a way to welcome new arrivals and encourage friendships among American ladies living abroad. In 1984, we became an official association, recognized by the French govenment. Over the years, during which the world has changed dramatically, the Club has served a very large and active English-speaking community in the Bordeaux region. Today, you will discover a dynamic mix of English-speaking women from more than 25 countries who tend to settle here for the long term. Our essential aim remains the same: helping the international English-speaking community integrate into French life and culture. Accordingly, English-speaking foreigners and French citizens who have lived abroad in an English-speaking environment are invited to join.


Bordeaux British Community

The Bordeaux British Community is a long-established social club for English speakers in the Bordeaux region. We organise a full programme of varied activities for Bordeaux expats where you will be able to meet people and get to know the area. The big annual events are a traditional Christmas dinner, Burn's night, a children's party and sports day. Every month we organise midweek lunches and golf days or a variety of outings. Despite the name we are not all British expats and do not all live in Bordeaux. Expats of any nationality can join and members live in all parts of the surrounding region from the Médoc to the Landes and inland to the Dordogne.


Association France-Grande Bretagne - Lyon & Rhône

It strives to establish and maintain dialogue between inhabitants of both sides of the Channel by meetings and debates, whilst assuring a better understanding of each other by means of conferences. There are 30 Associations in France, bringing together 3 000 members of whom about 120 live in and around Lyon. the objectives of the Lyon & Rhône association include the promotion of cultural and social links between the French and British communities, notably through English-language events in the Lyonnais (69) region.


L'Association Bordeaux-USA

Weekly meetings: Conferences, Debates, Videos and Slides on the United States or Aquitaine, open conversation in French or English. Also an American Library with more than 5000 books and magazines in English.


AIT International Club

AIT International Club (AIT I/C), originally called the Americans-in-Toulouse Club when inaugurated in 1987, is a non-profit, English-speaking expatriate social organization. The club is run exclusively by volunteers and welcomes families, couples and individuals of all nationalities living in or visiting the Toulouse area whatever their length of stay. AIT I/C fosters friendships, offers support and exchanges useful information for those living in the Greater Toulouse area, in order to ease their assimilation into a new country, city, language, culture and job. Whether on relocation or permanent residency, our goal is to help each member enjoy to the fullest their host community as well as to provide educational, social and cultural experiences. The club's membership is now truly international in composition.


American Women's Group in Paris

AWG is a member of the Federation of American Women's Clubs Overseas (FAWCO). We offer a wide variety of activities and events to keep you engaged all year long. Monthly open house meetings for members and guests, fashion shows and, of course, our ongoing activities including cooking classes, visits to museums and exhibitions, visits outside Paris, shopping, antiques classes and much more. Membership in the American Women's Group is open to all English-speaking women.


Alliance Anglo-Normande

We are an association set up in 2005 under French Law, with the specific aim of helping English speakers to integrate into the French way of life through mutual help in dealing with aspects of French bureaucracy, numerous and varied social events and the provision of good and effective French language courses. We now have around 80 members, British, French and Dutch, who live mainly in the Vimoutiers (61) and Livarot (14) areas as well as some in dept. 27. There is an active social programme, which includes things like regular coffee mornings both in Vimoutiers and in members' homes which include book, CD and DVD swaps. We usually have some other events each month which include walks, visits, quiz evenings, musical evenings, a car treasure hunt, an annual bar-be-cue and an annual Christmas lunch.
