ST Brigid's College in Horsham has welcomed four French students.
Mathilde Laurent, 16, Marie de Montaigne de Poncins, 17, and twins Valere and Rodrigue Barlerin, 17, are on a six-week exchange to the college.
The year 11 students have been in Horsham for about four weeks and are all staying with host families.
They said they were enjoying attending an Australian school.
"School is more relaxed here," Marie said.
"In France, there is no chatting with our friends in classes, but we don't have to wear a uniform.
"There are also subjects that don't exist in France, like cooking and psychology."
Mathilde said secondary students in France attended school from 8am to 6pm.
"We have more homework, too," she said.
Marie said the students at St Brigid's were friendly.
"It is amazing everyone wants to come and speak with us," she said.
"In France, if a new student came from another country, not many people would go and speak to him."
Rodrigue also said the students were welcoming.
Since being in the Wimmera, the students have visited Melbourne, Hamilton, the Grampians, Mt Arapiles, Ballarat and the Great Ocean Road.
The students had different views on their favourite thing about Australia.
Valere said he liked the kangaroos, Mathilde said she liked shopping, Marie said she liked the beautiful landscape and the nice people and Rodrigue said he liked Tim Tams and Australian Rules football.
"Vegemite is disgusting, though," he said.
