Thanks for your message. Yes, I\'m having a great time on my student exchange program in France. I was a bit nervous before I arrived here, but there was no reason to be. My host familyis really nice. They go out oftheir way to make me feel at home. rlhe grandmotheryknows that I miss Chinese food a lot. So she actuall learned how to make Chinese food! She also has a teenage granddaughter about my age who is really kind. She always talks to me in French to help me practice. You wouldn\'t believe how quickly my French has improved because ofthat. I\'m very comfortable speaking French noyw. Although I still make lots ofmistakes, it doesn\'t worry me as it used to.
My biggest challenge is learning how to behave at the dinner table. As you can imagine, things are very different from the way they are at home. For example, you\'re not supposed to put your bread on your plate. You\'re supposed to put it on the table! I thought that was pretty strange at first, but now I\'m used to it.Another example is that you\'re not supposed to eat anything with your hands except bread, not even fruit. You have to cut it up and eat it with a fork. Another thing is that it is impolite to say you\'re full. Ifyou don\'t want any more food, you should just say, \"That was delicious.\" Also, you re not supposed to put your elbows on the table. I have to say that I find it di佑cult to remember everything, but I\'m gradually getting used to it. I don\'t find French customs so strange anymore.
I\'ll write again soon and tell you more about mylife in France. Hope you\'re having a good school year.
