There comes a point in our lives when we all dream of taking time off for ourselves, discovering new things, doing what we have perhaps set aside. No matter the time or age, when we feel that we need to do something different, making the decision will be an easy thing. A sabbatical year is the ideal option when we want to take advantage and live new experiences, so today we tell you why coming to France could be one of the best options.
You will learn a global language
French is the official language in more than 30 countries and one of the few that is present in the five continents. In addition, it is the official language of major world organizations such as the UN and the European Union. Not forgetting that it is the language of romance, art, cinema and many other things. It is the third foreign language most valued in the professional area and one of the most chosen by students worldwide when learning a second language.
You will discover the most visited country in the world
France has occupied for many years in a row the place of most visited country in the world and for many reasons. The French territory offers its visitors an endless list of activities, places and gastronomy to discover. The diversity of regions in France makes it a top destination where we can surrender to Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower, take the best sparkling wine in the world at Champagne, get lost in the fields of Lavender in Provence, drive along the vineyards in Occitanie or swimm on the Mediterranean beaches. Here we have options for all tastes.
You will fall in love with its culture
France is a distinctly cultural country. There were many artistic expressions that were born in the country and many artists who made its cities their favorite bases to create the great works that we all know today. Lovers of art, cinema, theater, music, history and architecture will be amazed every time they discover something new and that they can immerse themselves in discovering the past of many artists and living the present of those who continue to create French-style art.
You will toast a lot
In France, a glass of wine will always be a good excuse to meet friends. The European country is one of the largest wine producers on the continent and worldwide, and there are many wine regions that are found throughout its territory. Also, in France, we love the appetizer time, that perfect time of the day to forget everything while having a drink with a couple of friends, with your partner or just enjoying the good gastronomy.
And you will eat a lot, too
If we talk about gastronomy, France has much to offer. Beyond the pancakes and croissants, our country has a wonderful cuisine, which each region knows how to put very high, and that not in vain, has been named Intangible Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. Here we must point out that we produce a huge variety of cheeses and that our pastry is one of the most famous in the world. In addition, here we love to eat and is goes beyond the dish itself, because for us to eat is the act of meeting with family or friends to celebrate the good times of life.
Because you will feel day by day the “Joie de Vivre”
Yes, that’s what we’re looking for every day, the happiness of living. Enjoying an artistic exhibition or a good movie, toast with the best wine or taste the most delicious dishes whenever they bring us good moments, that leave us filed with happiness, and it will be more pleasant if those moments are in good company. Here you will fall in love with the “Joie de Vivre” and maybe that will make you want to stay.
