Adapting to French Culture – Burgundy School of Business
More than 180 participants joined virtually and were excited to learn how to adapt to the new environment.
During their study, our students can embark on enrichment programs. They can choose various activities such as internship, community development, research, start-up business, further study, specific independent study off-campus, and of course, study abroad and experience the real world for 1 year.
Jesse Slowik, Charlotte Le, and Julie Noronha shared a practical tip on adapting to a new culture. For example, using respectful language when speaking in French is essential. Be sure to use formal language such as “vous” instead of “tu” and try to avoid using slang. Also, have a clear boundary between academic and professional life.
