In my study of comparing and contrasting our country and French, i’ve learn quitea bit of differences. For example, our school systems are the complete opposite. Somemay say that this is why the French student have a better learning quality than the U.S.students. But in some way they do get put down by the way they run their system.Many of their student take awhile longer to finish school due to year repeats,but theybasically make up for it with the amount of time spent in school.
