|The Gate of Jeanne D'Arc|

After un petit-déjeuner (breakfast) with the other French and American members of the exchange, we headed to our first classes of the day. My first class was Geographie (Geography). The lesson was on maritime trade, disputes, etc. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount of the material I was able to understand.
After a break, during which it seemed the entire school squeezed into their lounge/cafeteria area, I had two hours of Philosophe (philosophy), in which my French comprehension skills were greatly humbled. Next, before lunch, it was another period of Geography, in which the same lesson from before was continued.

Quite different from ours, the French education system was fascinating to observe. Included is a picture of the textbook used for the Geography class.
