Gives a French student a great perspective of France other than Paris...the
pictures and descriptions of food and folklore gave me a different view of
French culture as a whole.

This was a neat way to brush up on French geography. Very simple website, no
frills, just cool photos and passages to read, in French.

What a great tour of France. This page allows you to select a region or city
within France and then it takes you to an overview of that place. I like it
because it includes both text and pictures of the area.

I have been to several of the towns featured on the map, so I was pleased to see
that the photographs accurately reflected the character of each of them.

Technical Remarks:

There were some old links, and the webcam I visited (Mont Blanc) was not worth
the trouble; otherwise, the site was relatively trouble-free.

I enjoyed this site because there were links to a large number of cities in
France. The volume of information available was impressive.

I have used the Voyage Virtuel for years in my community college French classes.
I have linked to it on the French Resources page of my web site. I have also
assigned my students tasks that require its use.

The key feature of the Voyage Virtuel is its clickable map, that draws the
student deeper into the individual towns featured. There are photos taken by the
author that capture geography, culture and cuisine. The supplemental materials
and external links are also very helpful.


The Voyage Virtuel is one of many pages of a much larger site entitled
Civilisation Francaise. Each page covers a topic like Cooking, Economy,
Education, History, just to name a few. Each page provides useful information
followed by questions in different formats to test student knowledge, more than
500 photos depicting everyday French life, audio and video exercises, external
links, related films and a bibliography.


Technical Remarks:

On the Civilisation Francaise home page,the author clearly specifies any
plug-ins necessary for audio and video viewing. The whole site is easy to
navigate and the Voyage Virtuel is no exception.
