Lise Noyau , 24, is a French national who lives in London. With a degree in Spanish and Portuguese, she works for the British Council as a project coordinator, placing language assistants in schools.

London is a multilingual city: 40 per cent (51 per cent in Inner London) of London’s pupils speak a language other than English as a first language. What else does London offer Lise Noyau? And what is the future for her and other EU nationals?

“There’s a big francophone community here in London, but I’m not so much part of it, as I came to the UK when I was young and most of my friends tend to be British. There was no disadvantage or prejudice against me as a French person when I applied for the job. My family have moved back to France and I like being in London because it is easy to get to Paris to see them.

“My boyfriend and I came to London to live and work. That seems to be the thing to do when you’re in your 20s and 30s. You can find just about anything here. We share a one-bedroom flat in Putney, which has one of the lowest council tax rates in London. I love the area because it’s only a 40-minute journey into town and it’s also very close to Surrey and the green hills. I’m not so much of an urban person. People tend to forget that London has so many parks and green spaces.

The biggest frustration is that living costs are horrendously high, particularly in central London. Most jobs offer a London allowance, which helps with the increased costs. You can live further out, but it’s actually not much cheaper because of the cost of commuting.

“I lived in São Paulo, Brazil, for six months as part of my degree, which certainly made me appreciate how safe London is. People here always seem willing to help, which is nice.

“Like many EU citizens, I was fearful after the Brexit vote. I’m now being more pragmatic and will have to see what happens before being able to plan anything. My situation has changed because I don’t have dual citizenship — I’m a French national and will have to apply for ‘settled status’. I have two younger brothers, one studying in the UK and the other at school in France, and I worry that they might not have the same opportunities that I have had.”
