Normandy Experience is our French Language Immersion touring programme. Even with groups who are complete beginners in French, our Normandy Experience programme is proven to work. Schools stay at third party accommodation, accompanied by one of our native French animateurs for the duration of your stay and enjoy a full French programme including a day or two at our Château de la Baudonnière and visits to local cultural and historical attractions.
Château de la Baudonnière
The focal point of your Normandy Experience programme is a visit to our Château de la Baudonnière, a unique French-speaking environment designed especially for UK schools. Everything we do for you at the Château involves practical, spoken French at an appropriate level for your group.
At the Château your pupils will enjoy activities such as canoeing, archery, fencing, bread-making, assault course and climbing while they learn French at the same time.
You will spend the remainder of the school tour visiting your choice of Normandy’s broad range of historical and cultural attractions. We arrange all your visits for you and you will be accompanied to every venue by a dedicated native French-speaking animateur – all you need to do is let us know where you would like to go.
If you are in the area this year, perhaps on another school trip, please feel free to drop in at the Château. We have an open door policy and would welcome the opportunity to show you how we do things. Just give us a call on 01273 827327, or drop us a quick line and we'll call you!
