Inspire your students on the French Riviera with a French school trip to Nice!

With year-round warm temperatures, great beaches and a multitude of trendy cafes, shops and restaurants, Nice is the perfect setting for a French school trip. Plus, it offers the opportunity to visit a number of other exciting towns and cities along the coast!

Imagine life as a member of the glitterati with a visit to the Private Collection of Antique Cars in Monaco. Or set your students the challenge of practising their French skills at a market in Cannes. These are just some of the many exciting opportunities offered on your French school trip to Nice!

Key Stage 3 students will have lots of opportunities to develop and practise their vocabulary around topics including exploring the town, food and drink and cultural traditions.

GCSE students will love the opportunity to practise speaking French with native speakers. Topics they should cover on this trip include home, town and neighbourhood; food, drink and eating out; and travel and tourism. Of course, they’ll also develop their understanding of French culture on this school trip to Nice.

A-level students will find plenty of opportunities to work on their individual research projects. They’ll also learn more about different aspects of French-speaking society and will develop their understanding and ability to discuss a range of topics including artistic culture and immigration and cultural diversity.

Are your students preparing for exams? You might like to upgrade to our Language Study Trip to Nice, which combines lessons at a specialist language school and host family accommodation to offer a totally immersive experience.
