Living out of coumpounds in AlKhobar

Hi Everybody,

I am a French Muslim guy and i will be expatriated next year for taking a new position in my company.
I am not fan of the idea to come into a country and to live like consanguineous people especially as my way of life is often so far as europeans.

I would have your feelings about the idea to live out of a compound ? I would like to know if people have similar experiences ? Do high level coumpounds exist with mixed population (lebanese, morrocan ... etc ???)

I will be expatriate with my wife and my little boy. Do you think activities will be accessible for her out of a compound ? Can she build some friendly relation out of this ?

Do you know if religion courses and arabic courses are given in french or british school ?

Thanks a lot for your comments and answers

Hello amincewo.

Welcome to Expat.com! :)

Hope other members will give you some informations soon.

Thank you,
Aurélie

I expect too ...

Thanks a lot

Please check the following compounds:
Euro Village
Elite compound

most coumpounds have mixed population. it's safe to live outside of a compound but your wife will find it hard to find any friends or go out shopping. So for this reason I say play it safe and move to a compound. as for mix you will find 50% of familys here are lebanese and they stay mostly in compounds.
