The aims of our language course are to encourage pupils to speak and listen to the French language as often as possible while staying in an 18th Century Château. The courses are designed to build on the work pupils currently do within the school classroom and to develop an increased confidence in French, whilst also experiencing French culture. Our structured sessions will help to give each child an extra boost and a real appreciation of French and hopefully an increase in motivation when they return to the classroom in the UK.

Pupils are accompanied on the language module by a language coordinator, whose purpose is to ensure that each child obtains the maximum benefit from the French session chosen. Each pupil will receive a diary to be used prior, during and after the course. Teachers can then decide how much they want to incorporate our modules into the course work at school. Party Leaders can choose 2 modules on a weekend course and 3 modules on a week course.
