Additional Information: This paper examines the ongoing construction of the professional and personal identities of four French nationals, living and working as secondary school foreign language teachers in Greater London. It shows how individuals’ self positionings as either expatriates or immigrants relate to their relative willingness to conform to English educational and social norms. Based on over three years of contact with the four main informants (10 face-to-face interviews during this period), it draws on research findings from comparative education and sociology in original ways as it makes sense of their stories.
