THE FRENCH EXPERIENCE
was the biggest export market in the world for my companys electronic
products. It is also a country with a lot to offer in the study of human
relationships. My aim in France was to better understand the culture
of this special country. I took a sabbatical. One year for my wife and
me to spend in France seemed a long time, since we already knew French.
But, it turned out we needed several months of intensive language courses
before we could do any serious study at the universities, then three
semesters of studyand there goes the year.
In the course of our studies, we visited several parts of France. On
the following pages are some photos with some scattered impressions.
