I'm Lorena Gómez and I'm going to talk about France, I think that France is a very interesting country!
First of all, the capital of France is Paris and its language is French. France is the largest state in the European Union by area, and the third largest in Europe behind Russia and Ukraine.
Secondly, France has a lot of cities but the most important is Paris, it's the central region, but too, there are important cities like Corcega, in the Mediterranean, Marseille, Montpellier, Lyon and Tolouse. The most populous metropolitan area of France is Paris with more than 12 million people.
Furthermore, France is a mixed economic which is the fifth largest economic in the world behind United States, Japan, China and Germany. It's the second largest economy in Europe and its currency is the euro.
About the climate, France usually has temperatures between 9-16 degrees and for that, it offers a diverse climate.
Finally, It isn't easy to do a resume of France, but I'm going to try to talk to you about the main important events about the history of France.
France experienced the Renaissance and the Protestant Reformation. The country was governed for a period as a republic, until the French Empire was declared by Napoleon Bonaparte. When he died, France started to live changes as a monarchy, then a republic and then as a Second Empire until a more lasting Third Republic was established in 1870.
France was one of the Triple Entente powers in the First World War fighting alongside the United Kingdom, Russia and their allies against the Central Powers.
Since Second World War, France has been a leading member in the United Nations and the European Union.
Overall, I think that France is a very interesting country and I encourage the people that they go to see it!!
Thank you for your attention!
