    You will spend the month of July in France and return home with your exchange partner at the end of July. Your French exchange partner will return to France at the end of August. Exchange students are carefully selected and all documents are reviewed. While in France you will experience the daily life of the family.

    We have the support from the French Cultural Services of the French Embassy in New York. Or

    This program is made possible with the collaboration of the volunteer coordinators. The Association promotes foreign language learning, personal growth and development, increases awareness of another culture, and fosters a global perspective.

  • Ah ! On a tous des défauts comme des qualités, c'est pas si grave si les étudiants français sont soi-disant "nuls" en anglais ils se rattraperont plus tard xd
  • The article is interesting...especially the part where they discuss that the scores "a l'oral" are especially weak...can this be a consequence of the teaching methods used in French schools? Are students not getting enough of a chance to speak in classes? Maybe it has something to do with the differences in the phonetic systems between the two languages...
  • oui ! c'est bien vrai .....
    • That's a response that does not address the question. According to Le Monde, the students in France who study English as a second language do not do as well as many of the students in other countries who also study English as a second language.

      Nowhere in the article are there any statistics of students who study French as a second language in the United States or anywhere else. So your comment, while intending an insult to Americans, does nothing to reply to the crux of the article. Feel free to do so, if you want.
  • I think I have the beginning of an answer to Robert's article:

    • I'm sure this must be a real "gut buster" of a joke somewhere, but it sure doesn't make any sense in English, my native language.
  • Pour se rememorer nos annees college.....
