The French are proud to be French. They are nationalistic and chauvinistic. However, France is not that exceptional. French people are full of themselves. They proudly wear their berets upon their heads.

French people are considered as being dirty. On average, they wash their hands only three times a day.

Moreover, French people smoke like a chimney. They drink too much alcohol, especially wine and beer. As a consequence, there are a lot of car crashes in France. The French really like food and are very proud of their cooking. What do they love more than anything else in the whole world ? Eating ! They even eat some kind of cheese that smells very bad.

French people are said to be moody. They change their mood very often. The French are arrogant and miserly. Indeed, people say that they are selfish and tight-fisted. If a Frenchman sees a person who is jobless and homeless, he won’t give him any money even if that person is begging for money on the street.

However, French people also have a few qualities. They are said to be romantic. Indeed, French is the most romantic language in the world. In Paris, people can go on a boat trip on the Seine like in Venice with its gondolas. They are said to be elegant because there are a lot of fashion shows in Paris.

This picture shows camembert cheese, a kind of cheese that smells very bad.

This picture represents a French person with a beret standing next to the Eiffel Tower. The French flag may be seen in the background.
