Now that you've become acquainted with some French schools, say hello to Astérix le Gaulois, a cartoon character loved in France by people of all ages, not just students. Although Astérix is an ancient Gaul, he's kept up with technology. You can find him on the Web!

Check out Astérix on the Web and take notes on any cultural information you find.

If you feel inspired, create a storyboard for your own Astérix cartoon.
