A typical day in France
In France students usually start school at 8 a.m so a big part of them wake up at 6 a.m . Generally students go to university by bus, on foot or by car.
In France we can choose our school and they are not allocated a random university and where you go depends on your grades and how you rank your preferences .
A day of school is long, because we have 8 hours of classes, so we finish the classes to 5 p.m. After we stay in town to stay with friends or we go home to do our homework . Moreover most students practice some sport especially football which is the most practised. For breakfast, a lot of people like to eat viennoiseries and French baguette to be fit for the day. That is good to be in good health .
In France we like fashion.
On weekends the French generally have family meals and practice sport .
We’re celebrating on July 14th the National Day, that was “la Prise de la Bastille” in 1789...
