Piedmont's international exchange student Foucault de Scannaille from France recently spoke about his culture and experiences in America to Sherry Edwards' French II class. DeScannaille noted that he knew very little English when he arrived at Piedmont but everyone has been very nice. From French politics to food, Foucault explained many differences between his home country and the United States. During his presentation, he noted that French schools do not allow cell phones in class and there is a 2-hour break in the middle of the school day for lunch. Furthermore, he has grown to love the snack food Goldfish and also restaurants that have roots in the United States, such as McDonalds and KFC!
