These academic exchanges allow the students to discover the host country's culture in every aspect, by sharing the everyday life of an Indian or a French family. This enriching experience adds a real-life dimension to the course content being taught in the school. With the help of these exchanges, the partner school or university makes itself known and learns the know-how to organize intercultural projects, to communicate with foreign colleagues and to learn new ways to make the French language classes more interesting.
The LFR's helps to develop mutual knowledge and understanding of French and Indian regions, by revealing the common and different intercultural aspects to the young public (environment, history, art, traditions, language). Several institutions are already taking part in such exchanges, in Delhi, Jaipur, Amritsar, Chennai, Pondicherry in India and Paris, Annecy, Le Havre, Orléans, Grenoble in France and many more.
