GREAT MEMORIES FROM FRANCE:

In May 2015, we launched the contest: "Ça, c’est ma France" (This is my own personal France) to celebrate the registration of the 10,000th user on the platform. Since then, dear alumni, we have received about 200 contributions. Stories of your years as a student in France amazed us, impressed us and made us laugh. 

Your thoughts on France? They are tainted with nostalgia, for those who wrote us from far away. They are amusing, or even highly funny when they stressed the oh-so-typically French habits that surprised you. One thing is for sure: whether it's because of its people, cities or gastronomy, France inspires you.
