One of the best resources I have found* to help with moving to, or living in Paris, is FUSAC (France USA Contacts). This free magazine contains classified ads and advertisements for the English-speaking community of Paris and the surrounding area.
FUSAC is best-known for ads offering employment and housing. However, this periodical contains ads for all aspects of the English-speaking community: music, dance, theatre, courses in English and French, childcare, cars and household items for sale, meeting places, and much, much more . . . Just what you need to settle in and feel at home.
FUSAC is a wonderful resource for expats, but you don’t have to be in France to receive it. Before you make the move you can download this free publication (in a pdf format) from their website (http://www.fusac.fr/en/). Or if you wish, you can purchase a subscription and have the magazine sent to your home.
In Paris, you can pick up copies at restaurants, businesses, and bookstores frequented by English-speakers; as well as embassies and consulates.
