It depends on which French Culture you mean, there is obviously France-French, but also French-Canadian, and other various regions that are predomintly French. To answer yo…ur question regarding France, 5 aspects of their culture could include, -food (french onion soup, baguettes, croisants, etc.) -fashion -language -music -architecture ( the Louvre is located in Paris)
French is the language of the people who lived in the area which is now France, even before the borders were settled. It is a Latin-based language, with Germanic inputs.
The French introduced their language and culture to its Northern African, Senegalese and Malian colonies. The natives were encouraged to engage in these activities since t…he French would only accept as French, those who gave up their culture and adhered to that of France. French remains the official language of former colonies of France.
Answer #1 Perhaps the most famous of France's cultural landmarks is the Eiffel Tower. There are the fashion shows that feature the suits of Chanel, the shoes and purses o…f Aignier, and the outfits of St. Laurent. There's the film festival at Cannes. There are French cars, such as the Deux Chevaux. There are the historic cathedrals, such as Chartres and Notre Dame. There are the motorized bikes of college students. There's the obelisk from ancient Egypt, to remind the world of France's role in deciphering the hieroglyphics of ancient, pharaonic Egypt. There are the open-air book and print sellers, cafes, markets and parks. There are the old noble and royal palaces, such as at Versailles. There's the regional identities of the Cathar country around Toulouse, and of the fishing villages of the Basque country and of Brittany. There are Roman ruins, such as amphitheaters and aqueducts. There are the statues to Marianne, in memory of the French Revolution. There's the vehicular access to the tunnel under the English Channel. There are universities, such as the Sorbonne of Paris, and the Universite d'Aix-en-Provence. There are the vendors of newspapers and of roasted chestnuts. There are vineyards. Answer #2 Bordeaux in the south-west of France is known for its wine, and obviously Paris in the north with the Eiffel tower and l'Arc de Triomphe. Also, along the coast there is lots of surfing.
One of the most fun of the French cultural activities is celebrating Bastille Day, each July 14th, in memory of the French Revolution. Another fun French cultural activity is… choosing fresh foods such as bread from the bakery, and produce from the open-air markets. Still another fun French cultural activity is getting a month's vacation in August. Yet another fun French cultural activity is having weekend fun in the country during the spring, at the beach in the summer, on a hilly hike in the fall, and at a ski jump in the winter. And yet another fun French cultural activity is preparing for the year's end Christmas-New Year holidays with roasted chestnuts. add from a fenchman: if you ask a fenchman about "bastille day" he will never understand becaus we never say that, just say "le 14(quatorze) juillet".
I am going out on a limb to say you mean "What do French people wear?" The answer would be clothing. The French have long been known as arbiters of style, in clothing, p…erfumes and cuisine. American style tends to revolve around the "more is more, new is best" idea, which is the absolute opposite of French style. French women know that, when it comes to style, the thing to do is buy one perfect, timeless item that will last truly all your life. In four or five years, buy another item that complements the first one. If you are considering embracing French style, your wardrobe will tend towards neutrals, which are all-season and cannot go out of fashion. Black, and white, red or blue accents
culture - la culture
It doesn't matter what language you born in. Your thoughts will be in your native language. But when you change languages, you will think in the more dominate one.
Ancient Greek and Rome.
Cultures evolve within groups of people based on many elements of those people's lives, such as family duties and responsibilities, community needs, physical location, and bel…ief systems of the group. You yourself have your own culture based on your place within the larger group within which you live. You may not recognize it as a culture if you've never lived among another group of people or in another place. When people come into your culture from another culture, that's when you notice that there is a difference. Cultures show where they are from and hold that in their Heritage.
the French people call themselves les français (no capital letter needed).
Layman's version: Vikings found Canada - Left English found Canada French found Canada French Settled in modern day Quebec English settled in modern d…ay Newfoundland Wars/battles/skirmishes English now own Canada Canada decides to be independent. Because there are so many French people living in Canada (Quebec is almost exclusively French) and because the french culture is so ingrained into the Canadian Identity (the Acadien people) , both cultures begin to coexist. TADA!
There were two kinds of people in the French Revolution, the peasants and aristocrats. The peasants were getting higher prices on bread and the aristocrats, to be blunt, didn'…t really care. So the peasants came together and tried to overthrow the French government by forming mobs and storming places like, the Bastille and the Palace of Versailles.
