French Language Immersion Trips

Voyager specialises in French Language Immersion Trips, with three of our own properties we have years of experience in organising and running these fantastic trips. The Château de la Baudonnière, the La Grand' Ferme in Normandy and the Moulin aux Draps on the Opal Coast offer immersive residential trips where your students will undertake all activities and interactions in the French language with our own French-native animateurs. These trips have been proven to improve students’ language over a normal classroom environment, not only improving the spoken skills but also the confidence in which it is said. The Moulin aux Draps is just a short drive from Calais while our Normandy properties are easily accessible by coach from the UK.

On these language immersion trips, your students can take part in a variety of guided excursions as well as onsite sports and activities, from kayaking and archery to assault courses and bread making. Each activity will concentrate language skills in particular areas including body parts, movements, weights and ingredients. All of this and more can be organised by our team at Voyager School Travel, so don’t hesitate to contact us and book your language immersion school trip to France today!
