This is where i like it best. They do speak a different dialect, yet you will understand. I see by your writing, it has the same syntax errors I had problems with, being bilingual. It will help you understand the subtle nuances of the English language, as these separate word conjunctions are usually difficult to comprehend, unless you are familiar with persons speaking both languages.

French quarter is mainly all English speaking today.

So..Currently, I'm still in France with my parents, but we'd like to move in USA as quickly as possible. We already go to some city for holidays, like Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Miami, New York, etc..I didn't know the Louisiana since I discovered a series TV that i'm currently watching : The Originals. It happens to the New Orleans, and It seems really nice. So, when we'll leave France for USA, we probably move for Henderson/Las Vegas at the beginning because they want to go there. But personally, I like Las vegas but only for hollidays, I don't see myself to live there for the rest of my life..

In brief, that's not the subject..Of course, I'm here for meet some peoples, but the main thing is I'd like to know your opinions about Louisiana (Not only New Orleans, I seen b√Ęton rouge and it seems good too). How is it there, the life, activities, weather, etc..

Thanks

Welcome to the U.S.
Just out of curiosity, may I ask how you are attaining residency? Is your father being transfered to a U.S. office? Green card lottery? I also hear if you have the money to invest in a business you can live here? Sorry for being so nosy, ha ha...just curious. My husband is from England, so he's an immigrant to this country as well and recently got his citizenship. 15 years ago he came over on a K1 visa (aka fiance visa) cause I wouldn't go over there! lol!

New Orleans btw is amazing, at least as a tourist! If we were ever to move to that area, we'd move to Breaux Bridge, a charming small town outside of Lafayette.
Sigh... aside from many personal and family reasons not to move there though is that is get very very hot and muggy down there and I have asthma and find it hard to breath in extreme humidity darn it!

Good luck on your adventure!

Currently, we didn't get our visa yet, we are looking for the best way to get it ! It's really difficult ,so have to think seriously for that

We are boring by France, we are interresting by USA because we came a lot of times for hollidays, we'd like to see something new, get a new life. Currently in France, the future will be really difficult your young peoples (Like me for example). And when I see series TV/Movies, I dream about to live there..

I've always wondered why people had such a romantic view of the US. I guess I take it for granted.

Ive talked to others in France and they seem to feel the same way about the lack of opportunities there.
Same for other places in Europe.
The US isnt perfect but it still affords many opportunities that make it a unique place to live and prosper in.

You want to see big? Go to Houston or Dallas. Especially go visit Nebraska Furniture Mart in Dallas. GIGANTIC building. Youve never seen anything remotely like it guaranteed.

This is true and will mostly keep you out of any trouble, just be aware that the response time in New Orleans is mostly SAD, any problems that occur you are mostly on your own, many crimes are a waiste of time as it will take most of the day to make a report which isn't going anywhere anyway.
