Snowboarding France

Formerly known as the French Republic, France lies front and center of Europe. The currency of France is the Euro which is made up of 100 cents. Paris, the capital of France, is home to about 2.5 million Parisians. In the major cities and ski resorts most French people can understand English. If you have forgotten most of your school French then maybe you should pick up a few French phrases before you go. The summer months in France (June to August) can see temperatures above 30 c. If you need to phone the police then call 17, to call for medical aid call 15, it’s 18 for the fire brigade.
