A French school trip to Rouen offers your linguists the opportunity to learn French in a picturesque, historic city!

The capital of Normandy is within easy travelling distance of the ferry ports, making it an economical option for French language groups. And our partner language school is ideally located in the chic and quiet area of Jardin des Plantes, a short walk from a lively shopping area.

Lesson content will be tailored to meet your requirements. And, outside of lessons, students will take part in a diverse cultural activities programme to give them a taste of Normandy and French culture. Accommodation is offered with carefully selected host families, all of whom have clean police records.

French in Normandy has premises in the chic 'Jardin des Plantes' (botanical gardens) area of Rouen. An independent building of 600 square metres all on the ground floor offers access for those with reduced mobility, 12 spacious classrooms and a student resource centre.

For students wanting to completely immerse themselves in the French language and culture we recommend that you stay with one of the carefully selected French host families. They will not only introduce you to the French way of life and help you practice the French language but will also give you a taste of local and delicious regional specialities.
