Couple of Questions
« on: November 24, 2011, 09:30:08 pm »

What is the area of NH with a sizable amount of French speakers?

What are some colleges that are on par with University of Maryland College Park?

What private companies based in NH do you think have need for Linguist majors.

Are there any areas known for having racist people? (Don't want to move there by accident)

How is the music scene? (indie-rock in particular)

Thanks!!! ;)

Welcome to the forum!  :)

Coös County, way up north near Québec, is your best bet for French speakers.  According to the census, 23.5% of that county's residents are of French plus 19.8% are of French Canadian ancestry, and 16.17% speak French at home.  Plus it has some of the least densely populated land, which is perfect for Free Staters to focus on.

Lots of good colleges in New Hampshire (use a reference), and very few racists.

What kind of work do you usually do (or expect to be doing) as a linguist?  Can it be done via the Internet / telecommuting?

UNH (Durham) and Dartmouth are both highly rated universities.

Manchester has the Franco-American Center  http://www.facnh.com/

Thanks guys. Are there any suburbs around Manchester that are very safe and suitable for raising a family? Say within 20-30 minutes drive from Manchester.

Also I guess the job I'm looking is anything that requires translators. So maybe a law firm or international marketing company that needs polyglots.

Thanks!

"2nd Happiest"  -  Hawaii is "continental" now?  That would be one major earthquake...

"There is no state north of NH"  - Vive le Québec Libre!   :D

Thank you Sir.  You win, this time  >:D  And good point.  The area in Canada north of NH is French speaking Canada.

Thanks guys. Are there any suburbs around Manchester that are very safe and suitable for raising a family? Say within 20-30 minutes drive from Manchester.

NH has the lowest crime in the US and near the top schools.  As long as you don't send your kids to the Manchester schools, they will likely be in decent schools.  Every town near Manchester is good for raising a family in.  After all, NH is both the most livable state and the best state to raise a family in.

As for your job prospects, I don't know.  I'd think, in general, you would be more likely to find work near Manchester, Nashua, Portsmouth or Salem (the largest job markets in NH.)  I also recommend looking at jobs in northern MA, at least, at first.  You might want to higher a recruiter or company to find a job so incredibly specialized.
