You cannot fully understand a language if you do not understand its culture(s). The more you learn about French culture and lifestyles in France and other countries, the richer and more exciting your experience of learning French will become. The reading and listening comprehension and writing activity resources of the CUEF are always presented in a humorous way. They will allow you to learn from a distance wherever you are and whatever your schedule.

If you are pressed for time, make sure to at least do the first exercise of the second module « Les Français en stéréotypes. » Match pictures illustrating different ways the French is stereotyped around the world to their corresponding statements. This short quiz will give you the opportunity to rethink your own perceptions of the French people who live in France.
A fun reading exercise and a “clin d’oeil” to the French!
