Pen pals who have been writing to each other for the last year had the chance to meet during a visit at a school in Stansted.
A group of 68 French students visited Forest Hall School as part of the Stansted and Rungis twinning.
The visiting pupils learned about the school before embarking on a tour and then had lunch with their new friends.
Year 8 Forest Hall student, Holly Ellison said: "It was interesting to meet our pen pals and find out what schools are like in France. There are lots of differences, but some similarities. I am looking forward to visiting my pen pal and the school next year."
Head teacher Hannah Jones said: "Students had time to get to know each other more and practice their spoken French language.
