An exchange program to France is an opportunity to immerse yourself in a culture that has influenced the western world for hundreds of years. The French are very proud of their contributions to art, literature, philosophy, architecture, food and wine, sports and film. From the Alps near the Italian and Swiss borders to the forest covered Vosges Mountains in the northeast, the Pyrenees along the Spanish border and the beaches on the Mediterranean, France offers a breathtaking scenery and a rich culture.
