Flexible options for school groups to learn French in the Opal Coast
Just a short hop across the Channel from Dover, the Opal Coast features historic towns, vast sandy beaches, chocolate factories, goat’s cheese farms and everything in between making it very popular with French learners and first-time visitors to France. Our experienced French-native animateurs will guide your school tour and provide a full evening programme to create an immersive French experience. They'll build your students' confidence and encourage them to speak French at every opportunity. But perhaps above all else, they are here to make sure it's fun!
A brilliant optional extra to our programme is the opportunity to spend a morning or day at a local French school. Using our local knowledge, we will pair you with a French partner school that matches the age and level of your children, giving your group the unparalleled opportunity to practise their language skills with their French peers.
For a more personal and in-depth language experience, check out our winter camp programme. Available between November and February, the Moulin's winter camp offers more on-site activities and games such as breadmaking and science experiments, all led by our brilliant lead-animateur, Justine.
New since your last visit! The Moulin aux Draps centre is under new management, with a team from our centre of excellence, Château de la Baudonnière, taking the helm. Bring your students in 2023 to interact with French school students at the centre, practise conversational language and experience a real cultural exchange that’s certain to inspire a love for learning French. We’re also introducing new on-site activities including beach volleyball and pétanque, all set against the centre’s 22 acres of wildlife. Read more about what's new at the Moulin aux Draps centre.
