French language school trips

Unlike a traditional French school trip, our language programmes use highly trained native-speakers to create a truly immersive language experience which is shown to improve students' learning and confidence. We are the leaders in language immersion trips and specialise in French programmes for school groups at our own residential centres in Normandy and the Opal coast, as well as escorted trips to Paris where our animateurs lead a full schedule of activities conducted purely in French. Come to our flagship language centre at Château de la Baudoniere where your students will have more exposure to French in a week than they will experience in an entire term at school. Or hire our French language escape room to give your students a taste of French immersion without leaving the country.

Voyager's French Language School Trips

Each one of our language immersion school trips is different, but every one is designed to maximise the opportunities for students to practise their language with a trained French-native animateur.

School groups on our language programmes in Paris and at our residential centres in Northern France are led by our own French-native animateurs who have considerable experience working with schools groups.

Our Featured French Language School Trips

French Language School Trips to our Residential Centres

Our flagship French immersion and adventure programme based at Château de la Baudonnière uses French as the sole means of communication throughout the week which means that students have more exposure to speaking, and listening to, French than is possible in a whole term of formal lessons back at school.

Our residential language programmes at our centres in Normandy and the Opal Coast use local cultural visits to give children a chance to use their French in a real setting under the supervision of a trained animateur.

French Language School Trips to Paris

School groups on our Paris Parle programme will be accompanied by our experienced French animateur who will conduct all mealtimes, excursions and evening entertainment in French to give your students the opportunity to experience the cosmopolitan city of Paris while still practising their French.

The Benefits of a French Language Immersion School Trip

  • Students have a fun and enjoyable week while making substantial and sustainable improvement in their listening, pronunciation and conversation of the French language.
  • Students become more accustomed and comfortable speaking in French and grow in confidence as language students
  • By experiencing French in a real context, students come away understanding the practical benefits of learning another language which translates to more motivated learning back in the classroom
  • At the end of the week, students find that they enjoy speaking the language and are more likely to take French at GCSE or A level

How does language immersion work?

Instead of acquiring a new language by formal instruction, your students learn from native speakers, in an authentic and immersive environment.  Wherever possible, our animateurs and centre staff will not speak English to your students and will conduct all the activities, excursions, mealtimes and evening entertainment in French.

For many students this is their first taste of using another language in a real world context, providing a sense of purpose and enjoyment to their learning. And as students become more accustomed to speaking in a second language they grow in confidence.

What makes our school language programmes different

Most school French trips offer students the chance to experience a different culture with limited opportunity to interact with native-speakers along the way. Though these trips provide first-hand experience of the language being studied in the classroom, teachers may find it difficult to demonstrate sufficient educational benefit and value as there is only limited chance for students to use the target language.  Our French language school trips are different because we provide students with unlimited exposure to the French language and native-speakers, leading to sustainable improvement in students’ fluency, vocabulary and confidence.

  • Expose students to wider cultural topics and insight into the francophone world
  • Allow pupils to practise speaking on a variety of topics
  • Native speakers promote correct pronunciation, encourage conversations and build confidence
  • Activity encourage students to speak spontaneously and at greater length
