French Language Trip to Normandy

Are you looking for an alternative but very beautiful area of France to take your language students? Our language trips to Rouen may be the answer. In addition to structured language lessons at the excellent language school in Rouen, there are some amazing historical sights to see such as the Tour Jeanne-d’Arc, a remnant of the 13th-century castle where France’s famous saint was tried for heresy, as well as plenty of museums for some down-time.

Visits

  • Rouen: Important in the Roman era and in the Middle Ages, Rouen is a beautiful port city on the river Seine. Explore its Gothic churches and a cobblestoned pedestrian centre, which has hundreds of medieval half-timbered houses. Visit Tour Jeanne-d’Arc, a remnant of the 13th-century castle where France’s famous saint was tried for heresy.
  • Alabaster Coast: Classified since 2009 as a Natura 2000 site, the Albaster Coast takes its name from the white hue of its high chalk cliffs, including those of Étretat, which stretch for over 120 km, dominating most of the coastline.
  • Dieppe: Enjoy Dieppe’s popular pebbled beach, see its 15th-century castle and the churches of Saint-Jacques and Saint-Remi and taste its famous scallops.
  • Panorama XLL: Dive into the heart of the Amazon forest by visiting the Panorama XXL exhibition. Watch the incredible richness of its fauna and flora with the Amazonia panorama. From a 15m high platform, you can see the Amazonian landscape in all its height and extent, watching from the tops of giant trees the fascinating plants and many animal species.
