The classic sights of Paris: the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, Sacré Coeur and Notre Dame are, justifiably, the main areas of focus for most school trips to Paris. While the more recent ones: the Pompidou Centre and the glass pyramid in front of the Louvre also appear on many groups’ excursion wish lists. Groups wishing to see these sights on a school trip to Paris and practise their French at the same time will be hard-pushed to find a better opportunity to do so than our language course in Paris.
Robert was always prompt to answer questions and Isabel was very good, cleared up information. I was impressed that they were able to tailor the trip to the specific needs...

The educational benefits were experiencing a different culture, speaking the language and learning about history.
Cecile, Teacher of French, South Manchester
The students practised their French whilst learning about the country itself. Everything ran smoothly and the students and staff had a very enjoyable week.
Nina, Head of Modern Languages, Nottinghamshire
The highlight for the students was the Eiffel Tower and for me, Fontainebleau, a lovely town and it was great to see the students using so much French.
Jess, French Teacher, Nottinghamshire
For me it was seeing the students interact with French people, the enjoyment of a different culture and trying new things. We really enjoyed our visit again. Thanks for all...
