With any luck, I will be going to France for nearly 3 weeks this summer as an exchange student with my school. I will probably be going with about 12 or 13 other kids, but we will have seperate homes. I’ll be staying with a family in Marseille. After 2 weeks there, our small group is going to go to Paris and do a tour of the city for 4 days. I can’t tell you how excited I am about this trip - this is gonna be so cool. And I even know a little French. So… have any of you ever been an exchange student? In France? What was it like? Is there anything I should know before I go?
(I’ll have more info on my trip in the days ahead.)
