STOP THOSE NUISANCE CALLS

 

A NEW government-backed service that aims to put a stop to nuisance phone calls will launch on 1 June.

 

Residents who no longer wish to receive cold calls will be able to register for free at

 

 www.bloctel.gouv.fr 

 

and add their landline or mobile number

to the "do not call" list.

 

Telemarketing companies will have to

update their databases at the end of each

month with the new blocked numbers

- meaning it could take up to a month before

your registration takes effect.

 

Registration lasts three years, at which point you should receive an email or letter asking if you wish to renew.

Bloctel will also enable people to file a complaint if they continue to receive unwanted calls, with fines

of up to €75,000 for offenders.

Practise Your French

 

My name is Régis Perrin.

I'm 42 years and arrived with my little family in Le Vigan

4 months ago to change our way of life.

 

We discovered that there isn't enough exchange between English and French people

just because there is a language barrier

and it is a great shame.

So we'd like to gather a group of people

together - both French and English, of all

abilities so they can practise with each other.
