A French school trip to Paris will leave your students with unforgettable memories of an inspiring language-learning experience!

The options are endless for your school trip to Paris. Stroll the boulevards, gaze at the impressive monuments, enjoy great works of art and savour the delicious cuisine, as well as the electric atmosphere.

A French culture school trip to Paris is a great choice for KS3, GCSE and A-Level students.

For KS3 students, this is the perfect introduction to France and French culture. Your students will love the opportunity to soak up new vocabulary and test out their speaking skills on native French speakers. They’ll be able to develop their vocabulary around themes such as ‘exploring the town’, ‘food and drink’ and ‘cultural traditions’, and many more.

For GCSE students, a school trip to Paris is the perfect opportunity to get some fantastic speaking experience, ahead of oral exams. They too will have the chance to develop and test out their vocabulary around themes including ‘home, town and neighbourhoods’, ‘future aspirations, study and work’, and ‘food, drink and eating out’.

They will also relish this incredible opportunity to better understand French culture and identity.

For A-Level students, a school trip to Paris offers them the chance to delve deeper into French national identity and culture, as well as practise their linguistic skills. They’ll be able to learn more about French artistic, political and working culture. This trip also offers the opportunity to work on individual research projects.

Are your GCSE or A-Level students preparing for exams? Then you might like to consider our French Language Study Trip to Paris, which includes lessons at a specialist language school, where lessons are tailored to suit your curriculum and learning objectives.
