french are charming elegant have style are thin very intelligent experts at cheese and wine they are romantic frivolous and ighty The are also arrogant cynical rebellious and difficult to govern Some stereotypes of people from Quebec are that they are athletic and play hockey are sophisticated they eat well they love syrup and poutine they are impatient and they are Catholic La vie priveel La vie publique The french are very private The shutters on their windows are closed there are walls around their homes and gardens they often have a guard dog If you were to go to their house and open the fridge to get a drink it would be very impolite It is rude to follow the host to different rooms in the house they often have doors within the house closed It is rude to ask personal questions such as What did you do last night or to ask what their profession is because it shows their social standing You can ask opinions on things in the news but it is rude to ask things such as their political views Demander un service People from France are actually nice contrary to popular belief Le Quebec French is spoken in Quebec Canada was discovered by french eXplorers looking for a route to India

France During a meal keep your hands on the table Put bread directly onto the table and eat in small pieces People often have butter and jam with toast for breakfast In France it is polite to take a
