C00-C19: semi-open simple variation vs the French?

Hi,
forgive my ingnorance (this may be blasphemy here) but I don't know the French too well!
I am trying to suggest a line for a novice player.
They wouldn't like a blocked position so I'm thinking not the Advanced, but something more semi-open. They like to attack (positionally a bit weak) so I'm thinking not the Tarrasch.
The exchange variation seems to tick the boxes but I'm a bit loath to suggest that.
3.Nc3 seems to be the option, but they aren't too good at learning variations, so I don't want any tricky stuff in the opening.
Is there a decent line after 3.Nc3 that allows for a semi-open attacking position that is relatively simple to play (Ie; can make sensible moves without having to know tricky theory to stay alive)? Or can anyone suggest anything else (no dodgy gambits please)?
