France has always been attractive to immigrants. In 2008, the INSEE estimated that 5.3 million foreign-born residents and 6.5 million of their descendants (French-born of at least one immigrant parent) lived in France, for a total of 11.8 million, which was 19% of the total population in metropolitan France – 62.1 million at the time. These numbers included roughly 5.5 million of European origin, 4 million of Maghrebi origin, 1 million of Sub-Saharan African origin and 400,000 of Turkish origin. In 2010, 27.3% of the 802,000 newborns in metropolitan France had at least one foreign-born parent. In 2012, 229,000 foreigners arrived in the country.

I really dislike boats.

Leaving your hometown and all that’s familiar is hard enough. But moving to another country? That’s a whole different ballgame. There’s the airport, the flirtatious taxi driver, and the slightly giddy feeling that you’re in over your head and maybe you’re not quite cut out for your new adventure. Adjusting might take a long time, or just a few minutes, depending on how much wine you need to drink as fortification. It’s a new culture and language, and you may wonder, “How will I survive here?”
