Intercultural Communication is a form of communication that aims to share information across members of different cultures and social groups. It is situated communication between members or groups of different linguistic backgrounds. The French have a very strong cultural experience. They are a group that has, over the years, resisted the change that has molded other cultures. Europe being their backyard, the French have spread their tentacles over the centuries on various other continents.
