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.
