    Hi,

    Nice site! I’m American and have been living in Montpellier for 25 years.

    I did this site http://www.num2txt.com for a friend 20+ years ago.

    Its good for writing number (ie. checks) in French (German and Spanish).

    Check it out.

    I’ll visit again. Good luck.

    Hi Michael
    I like your site…..I found it through Linked in.

    Perhaps you’d consider introducing mine – http://www.Go-to-France.co.uk. Primarily a French property sales site, but also includes an ‘Expats page’ with classified ads etc, and also property rentals and property wanted pages.
    Happy New Year to all!
