Coronavirus and remote learning in France: how French students rebel

I'm thrilled about distance learning. I no longer need to wake up at five a.m. to be at eight at my university; you can read a book during a break, and sometimes, just don't tell anyone, when the empty talk is pouring from the speakers, you can switch to podcast mode, i.e. listen to the teacher and go about your business. Everything suits me.

This position isn't supported by all students. French dormitories are, of course, better than Ukrainian ones. They're renovated and you don't need to share a room with a Tanya, eating borscht at 2 a.m. But the room's standard size doesn't exceed 9 m2. For a higher price, you can get a bigger room or even a studio, but they're stretched thin.
