About this trip

Bonjour! Salut! Comment ça va? We know you want to give your GCSE and A-Level students a grasp of more than the basics when it comes to the French language, and the best way to do that is with an immersive experience.

That’s why we’re here to tell you that your students can get all the benefits of an international school trip, right here in the UK with a French language school trip to London.

Find out how much your students really know with a cruise along the Thames with French language commentary. And you don’t need to go to France to visit the Institut Francais or watch a classic French film at the Ciné Lumière.

In fact, your students can experience what it’s like to walk the streets of France in London’s famous French Quarter (South Kensington). With a wealth of French cafes, bakeries, and patisseries to choose from, your students can get a taste of French cuisine without stepping foot on a ferry.

So, whether it’s a French language day trip you’re looking for, or a residential visit with a range of classes and activities to enhance their understanding of the language. Give your students the French experience with a French language trip in the UK.
