The former Lens man was signed by Arsene Wenger as cover for David Seaman and says that the number of players from across the English Channel will help him settle.
"The presence of the Frenchmen will favour my adapting to life in England," said Warmuz.
"And I am only two hours away from home, where my wife and children will remain for the rest of the season.
"Only the Channel separates Lens and London, so here I will soon feel at home."
Warmuz says that he is well aware of his role as Seaman's deputy and readily accepts that he is a back-up keeper, but also has an eye on the number one jersey due to the age of the England international.
"There is no ambiguity between us, I am his stand-in.
"Seaman is a living legend at Arsenal, but he is a 39-year-old and a recognised face does not constitute an assurance against all risks.
"I am not here to be the new David Seaman, frankly I would look ridiculous with a pony tail and a fine moustache!"
Meanwhile, Gunners youngster Olafur Skulason has returned to Icelandic side Fylkir on loan for the rest of the season.
The 19-year-old midfielder has failed to make an impression on Wenger's first team but is one for the future and has been loaned out to give him some much-needed football.
