Transcript of France

France is located in Western Europe, and it borders the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Mediterranean to the south. Spain is the land to the south of France, and multiple countries including Germany are to the east.
Countries that border France to the east include Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland and Italy. To the south, France borders Andorra and Spain. France also borders the small country called Monaco. The island of Corsica in the Mediterranean Sea is to the southeast, and it is technically part of France. The waters to the west of France are called the Bay of Biscay. The country of England lies to the north, and in between there is the English Channel. Austria and the Netherlands do not border France, but they are close by. France’s location near the Mediterranean Sea makes for mild winters and hot summers along the parts of the country that border the sea. The rest of the country tends to have cool winters and mild summers. A cool, dry wind called a mistral blows northerly through the country. France is generally flat, though there are some rolling hills in the northern and western areas of the country. Parts of the country are also mountainous, including the Alps in the east. -Ask.com

Most people associate French culture with Paris, which is a center of fashion, cuisine, art and architecture, but life outside of the City of Lights is very different and varies by region. Historically, the French culture was influenced by Celtic and Gallo-Roman cultures as well as the Franks, a Germanic tribe.

Cultural traits
Modern France evolved from a number of provinces and overseas colonies being incorporated into its geographical and political structure. Prior to the 20th century, a large patchwork of local customs and regional differences existed, with different regional languages meaning the vast majority of the population could understand neither the language in which political debates and administrative documents were communicated, nor that used by people from other regions. The French Third Republic (1870–1940) encouraged the suppression of regional languages through mandatory military service and a centralised national educational system though, despite this effort, regional differences are still celebrated today. This is best exemplified by the French notion of 'terroir', which maintains that things are embodied by a sense of place, created by the effects of the local environment.
