• France is fairly environmentally friendly. France
  chops down trees causing deforestation. Obviously
  large cities like Paris have negative effects. Nearly
  79% of France’s power comes from NUCLEAR
  power, which can have positive and negative
  effects. Despite all of this, France is a very eco-
  friendly country. 29% of France is forested. Many
  people plant trees, they pollute less and are a part
  of the “Go Green Program”. France is fairly

    Data about France……
•    Regions of France
•       France is located in Europe more in the south.
    They speak mainly French but also a bit of Catalan
    and Breton. In 2008 the population was 62,277,432
    people and there should be a lot more now. Some
    landforms are the Eiffel tower in Paris, France.
    There is also a huge volcanic mountainous plateau
    called Massif Central. There is the longest river in
    France called the Loire river. That is just some of
    the landforms in France but there are many more.
    Some of the customs they have are like when you
    see someone you shake hands and also sometimes
    you kiss them on the right and then the left. Also
    you don’t say hello sir or lady, you say “ bonjour
    Madame and Missourre.

                              France………
                                            •     . The handshake is a common form of greeting.
     . Friends may greet each other by lightly kissing on the cheeks, once on the left cheek and once on the right cheek.
           . First names are reserved for family and close friends. Wait until invited before using someone's first name.
     . You are expected to say 'bonjour' or 'bonsoir' (good morning and good evening) with the honorific title Monsieur or
                                   Madame when entering a shop and 'au revoir' (good-bye) when leaving.
 . If you live in an apartment building, it is polite to greet your neighbours with the same appellation. Gift Giving Etiquette
                        •   . Flowers should be given in odd numbers but not 13, which is considered unlucky.
. Some older French retain old-style prohibitions against receiving certain flowers: White lilies or chrysanthemums as they
        are used at funerals; red carnations as they symbolize bad will; any white flowers as they are used at weddings
  Prohibitions about flowers are not generally followed by the young. When in doubt, it is always best to err on the side of
                                                                        conservatism.
             . If you give wine, make sure it is of the highest quality you can afford. The French appreciate their wines.
                                                      . Gifts are usually opened when received.
                                                                •      Dining Etiquette
                                             •     If you are invited to a French house for dinner:
. Arrive on time. Under no circumstances should you arrive more than 10 minutes later than invited without telephoning to
                                                            explain you have been detained.
                                      . The further south you go in the country, the more flexible time is.
     . If invited to a large dinner party, especially in Paris, send flowers the morning of the occasion so that they may be
                                                                   displayed that evening.
. Dress well. The French are fashion conscious and their version of casual is not as relaxed as in many western countries.
                                                                 •     Table manners:

                                     . If there is a seating plan, you may be directed to a particular seat.
                                            . Do not begin eating until the hostess says 'bon appetit'.
                  . If you have not finished eating, cross your knife and fork on your plate with the fork over the knife.
                     . Do not rest your elbows on the table, although your hands should be visible and not in your lap.
                                                            . Finish everything on your plate.
                                  . Do not cut salad with a knife and fork. Fold the lettuce on to your fork.
                                                         . Peel and slice fruit before eating it.

   Movement of France
                             Movement in France
  Frances uses movement like other countries to get needs and wants or
better life. They can travel by lots of things like the underground tram and
  other things like cars, trucks and buses, which are more of the regular
 vehicles. They also go a bit old school with some horse wagons. France
transports the items that we do like clothes, books, food, toys, ideas etc.
     just like most countries do. They also get these items from other
 countries like America. They also travel by an air travel company called
Air France, which is pretty much used a lot. They share ideas from man to
man to TV and computers. They also use phones and radios. In France the
 girls like to wear crazy and furry things like huge coats. They also wear
  interesting things like huge earmuffs. The boys like to go more English
 and a bit old English. France trade by volume, is one of the largest in the
 world. France exports and imports various raw materials on one side of
the spectrum and automobiles and electronic products on the other side.
 The country ranks sixth in the world in terms of export volumes and 5th
when it comes to imports. Being a well developed economy, French trade
          features a lot of raw materials and manufactured goods.
