France

Students enjoying an exchange in France will be immersed in the French culture including food, language, customs and education. Our district exchanges with between 3 to 5 different districts in France each year. Those districts are in the Northern, Southwest, South Central, Normandy Coast and Southeast Coast.
These regions vary greatly, from the historic Normandy area with its connection with World War II to the agricultural regions in the South Central section of the country.

Regardless of the area in France a student goes, that student will be immersed in the French culture and language.

It should be noted that Paris is not included within any of the districts we exchange with although students often have the opportunity to travel to Paris with host families or on Rotary-sponsored trips.
