emergency call france

Bonjour !

First, a quick reminder: you have only 48 hours left to join the course « Speak like a Parisian ». Want to leave your textbook French behind? Join here: http://boutiquefrancaise.fr/ :)

Now, today on Comme une Française TV, a rather serious topic.

You know how sometimes you realize that if something bad happens to you or your loved ones, you have NO idea how to deal with it?

Who will you call in France if your son breaks his leg?
What to do if your dad has chest pains in Paris?
Will you need a French Social Security number to go to the Emergencies to get stitch points on this wound you got from cutting tomatoes?

This topic came up on Facebook, proposed by Lesley: “How to make an emergency call in France”

To answer this today on Comme une Française TV, I’ve invited my dear friend Olivier, who is… guess what… a real life French doctor!

Dr Olivier will tell you how to call, what to say in French, what if you don’t speak French and what will happen next.

In fact, Bastille Day is very different from what you think.
