In February 19-27, 2020  Perm Foreign Languages School No 22  was hosting the delegation of Lycee Sud Médoc La Boetie students from the  French town of  Taillan-Médoc. This is the 11th visit to Perm organized under the school exchange programme. 

The French delegation  programme  has been full of various events, including  the sight-seeing tour of Perm,  the visit to Perm-36 Museum,  Perm Art Gallery and Antiques Museum,  Russian language classes as well as exploring  the schooling system and activities. 

The French schoolchildren also  learnt  how  the local government works – they visited the Perm City Administration and the City Council. They took a lot of interest to the history of Perm and development of twinned cities links.

The French guests were very satisfied with the successful visit, however, their feeling was that they still lacked something very specific of the place  – namely, the famous Ural  frosty winter weather! 

The school exchange programme  between the schools of France and Perm has been successfully implemented since 2009  and is aimed at developing partnership links between Russian and French schools, promoting the Russian language and culture in France and  the French language and culture in Russia.  Throughout  the years there has been a vast variety of joint projects involving teachers and schoolchildren.
