The education a country offers is not limited to its educational system and its universities, but anything from language courses, cultural classes, museums, libraries, or even a chat with a friendly neighbor at a local café. We’ll let the other pages take care of that info. As for this space, it would have been helpful if we’d had a chart like the one below when coming to France – the public education system is not intuitive and the high-pressure choices for teenagers to make with regards to their future are a bit confusing. Also, why would someone go from 6th grade to 5th grade, 5th grade to 4th grade and so on?
I've lived in France since August 2006 with a stint back in Washington, DC for a year. Ten months of my time in France were spent in Rouen - the Normandy town known for, among other things, Joan of Arc's death and Monet's study of light. With the years that pass, Paris is constantly transformed by the interesting people I meet who open up new doors in this amazing city.
