Hey guys,

I am a fan of the travel section, albeit a silent follower. Lol, so I want to contribute my quota. This is going to be all about pictures and experiences as an international student in France.

I basically take this pictures for guys who wish to see how life is here (in pictures). Don't worry, I have a lot of images for your viewing pleasure.

So let's go.

Pics:

1. My new life with coins. Here, I have to go back in time and appreciate the simplicity of life. Coins again? Yes
2, 3. My window view
4. My street view

Tomorrow will make it a week in France.

It's not been tough because the French is doing great work in intensifying the English language course for French students and the the French language course for English students. Thanks also to my environment which is a student environment. Most people speak English a little. So navigating through the system is not really difficult. However, there are some that do not speak English at all.

From my own personal experience, it's been smooth. My school has a language course. We did a test today to assess students level of French language. The test will be marked and students will be grouped according to their level. However, some of us who doesn't know even the greetings got exempted from the test and automatically got enrolled into the beginners class. cry cry

The response to your question have been answered above in details (I guess).

To give a high level response: Yes to both of them.

Most public schools in France are tuition free. However, my school is a public school but classified as an Elite schools called Grande Ecole. The French has some public schools with free tuition fee and then some Elite Schools with tuition fee. For my school, it's 22k euros for masters. 12k euros/year.

I am under scholarship and also got a scholarship in the school as one of the best M.Sc applicants. I think they pick one from every department and give 6k euros scholarship that comes as a tuition waiver. I got that and it only goes to my sponsors. Wish there's a way I can get that money. My guys dey wait for me for Ogbete main market. I no fit disappoint them.


My point is, make a good choice depending on your program sponsorship. If you are self sponsored, know where to go.

Warm regards

Not really bro. Your pocket comes before anything including your stomach.

You must pay before you do anything here. And if you manage to do anything before you pay and you don't have the complete money, nah to add the thing to your next bill or you learn how to wash plate grin grin grin


Bro, food comes first before money o. Every money you earn over there doesn't belong to you...If the consequence is to wash dishes, I don't mind because it is written in the Bible that it is a man's job to wash dishes "I will wipe Jerusalem as a man wipeth a dish, wiping it, and turning it upside down ." grin

After introducing us to the restaurant yesterday, I decided to try if I can get the complete meal package for just 3 euros (N1200).


So I got the meal in pics 1, 2, & 3 for that amount. I even missed one; dessert.

Pics 4 is where you drop your plate when you are done. It's more like a plate elevator. It rolls up to where (I think) someone will receive it.

Transportation is expensive however, with the Tan card, it becomes cheap. You pay monthly instead of the daily pay that I currently do. I was surprised to see that it's more costly for people who are above 26 years. I went with someone who is below 26 and he paid only 41 euros for a month against the 69 euros I paid.

I want to go back in age cheesy cheesy


I got the random pictures below.

Sure. Though we signed a bond to come back but it's not compulsory if you have something doing here. It's just a way of making sure you don't overstay your visa doing nothing.

On Thursday last week, I went to the kitchen to boil some hot water. The hot water that comes from the tap in the kitchen gets quick much faster.

In the kitchen, I met this Chinese babe. Asked if she can speak English and she responded in the affirmative. O boy, nah so gist take start. She was smiling, laughing and shinning her teeth as unleashed our Nigerian package on her.

She was in a French exchange program that will last for one year. She came last 2 weeks and baba oyoyo just land few days ago. Nah so I collect every identity about her, phone number, instagram, Facebook, etc.

Here, it's nothing, people really want to network. They find everyone friendly and opportunity to make new friends. The way they rush party here eeh, you will know that loneliness dey kill them. A system that encourages everyone to be on their own, so why won't they appreciate when someone wants to know them.

Me wey carry better binding energy land. I saw different kinds of babes with different structural and topographic build ups ( Shebi nah book I come read bah? Olodo like me, make I no come disappoint my sponsors oo grin grin grin grin)

Same day, she invited me to a gathering of Chinese people ( a small party), I declined immediately with few useless reasons. Before I go go chop snake mixed with cockroach (being funny anyway).

She was such a happy babe and with the way we are going, babe is already planning to come to 9ja when she completes her studies shocked shocked shocked shocked cheesy cheesy

Pictures of our street night view. I think they are very conservative with everything they do here including the lights. lol.

Good night and see you guys tomorrow
Been waiting for this part cheesy No dulling....... Nice pictures, Enjoy your stay there and Good luck on your studies... smiley

Re: My France Picture Gallery by UtilityRational(m): 10:02am On Sep 19, 2019
good one Mr physics.

my question is that were you allowed to travel with food stuff like rice and beans. would france Immigration allow that through because I would be traveling next year insha Allah.

and how about the kitchen, can you snap some pictures there for us. and wouldn't be any congestion there especially when people are rushing in the morning for class.

and which one do you think is cheaper, cooking or buying food.

thanks
