A French school trip to Paris and Parc Astérix will be an unforgettable experience of the French language and culture!

Your students will love the opportunity to combine the atmosphere and culture of Paris’ most iconic city sights and museums with a day of fun and laughter at Parc Astérix.

This unique theme park is based on the famous French comic book series about the village of indomitable Gauls as they resist the Roman occupation. Attractions include a representation of a traditional Gaulish village, street theatre and live shows, as well as plenty of rollercoasters and other wild rides ready to produce squeals of delight and excitement from even the most adventurous thrillseeker.

This is a fantastic, fun French school trip for students of all ages, from Key Stage 3 to A-level. All will love the opportunity to immerse themselves in the French language and culture. And they’ll have plenty of opportunities to practise speaking with native French speakers.

Key Stage 3 students will be able to refresh and develop their vocabulary around themes including exploring the town, food and drink, eating out and cultural traditions.

GCSE students can develop their vocabulary around themes including travel and tourism and holiday destinations, while at the same time deepening their understanding of French culture and identity.

And A-level students will jump at this chance to develop their understanding of various aspects of French-speaking cultures, artistic culture and festivals and traditions, among other things.
