The French students are in Koping throughout the week 14. Each live with a Swedish student.

Åsa-Marie Burman, a teacher in Swedish and English, tells you what the exchange means for the students:

– They open up to other ways of looking at the world, they must try to live in another family and see that not everything works the same everywhere and that it need not be wrong – just different ways. They have more tolerance.

The French students noticed early in the week, some differences between countries:

– The food is quite different. And the way we eat. In France people eat fewer times but larger portions, we also eat later in the evening, at 8 am, said Axelle Nangea.


One of the French students designed this logo, which symbolizes the exchange between schools.

Even the Swedish students reflect on the differences between countries:

– Schools are the huge difference between. They have such respect for teachers and address them by their first name, says Aisha Cooley, 18, who goes on care and care program.

Isa Jansson, 18, who runs the same program, continues:

– Safety is also different. They must show the school passport when they enter the school.

While they share almost the same age young people much. School day in France and in Sweden have many similarities:

– It differs not very much really: We’re all teenagers, and some have the same interests, says Isa Jansson.

Aisha Cooley adds:

– When they come home from school, they sit with their plug and eat food at night, just as we do.


Åsa-Marie Burman’s teacher in Swedish and English on Ullvigymnasiet. She and the other teachers in the exchange has worked hard to prepare everything. “The biggest challenge is that it is quite difficult to get Swedish families to let a stranger into his home, perhaps because they have high standards for everything to be perfect.”
