We are three girls from Fonsorbes High School and we created this webpage to give you an idea of what American teenagers think about French teenagers and vice versa.


Clémence Royer High School in Fonsorbes

A small photo to show you our school first !


1. Top 5 words to qualify American teenagers as seen by French.

  • Roisterers
  • Impulsive
  • Lazy
  • Capricious
  • Impatient

But that's not true, is it ?!

2. The typical day of a French teenager as seen by French students


6:30 am getting up
8:00 am beginning of school day
10:00 am break
12:00 lunch
1:30 pm afterlunch recovery
3:30 pm break
5:30 pm end of school day
7:30 pm dinner
11:00 pm bed time

And that's exactly it !

3. The typical portrait of an American as seen by a French :

The Americans are imagined as blond, with blue eyes, tall and athletic. We have thus established the portrait of a typical teenager.


But that's not true, is it ?!

4. The typical portrait of a French as seen by an American :

French teenagers are often seen as brownhaired and wearing fashionable clothes.

But that's not true,  for sure ! 

5. Question asked to our classmates :  Would you like to be (an) American ?


And that's true, of course !
