The French educational system is known to be hard but very rewarding, with a strong focus on developing critical thinking.A school day starts around 8 am and can finish as late as 6 pm. Usually there is no class on Wednesday afternoons.

No uniforms are required, even in the private schools.French schools do not offer many extracurricular activities, but towns offer youth clubs and activities.


Meals are important for families and taken together. Dinner is also the time to share the day with the other members of the family. The word of elders is to be respected.

In most families, both parents work, and help from the children is therefore very welcome. French families enjoy a great deal of traditions.

If you are in France for the winter holidays you may try the Galette des Rois – a crusty cake filled with almonds or apples, eaten in early January to celebrate the religious story of the visit of the three Kings to Jesus.

On Mardi Gras you may try la Chandeleur – a crêpe made and tossed with a coin in hand to bring good luck.

“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for 

the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.”
