Opal Coast Language Studies
PRACTISE FRENCH IN FRANCE!
This tour is a great opportunity for students to put into practice what they have learnt in school and immerse themselves in the French culture. Less than a couple of hours from the UK, you and your students will be able to visit some of the traditional and historic visits that Northern France has to offer as well as practising their language skills with locals.
A perfect recipe for a perfect school trip
Our ready-made itinerary for two nights to Opal Coast is ideal for teachers who want to let their students practise their French and find out about the local culture. Students will experience, in just a few days, the best of what the Opal Coast has to offer.
We have included our top five visits in the area: Nausicaa – the French National Sea Life centre, a visit to a French market for a taste of the real France, a visit to an artisan sweet factory for a chance to see sweets being made by hand, a touch of local Second World War history at La Coupole and finally a visit to a bakery to discover the secret of baking delicious French bread and croissants.
This tour will provide new experiences to students as well practising their language skills learnt in the classroom, getting a taste of traditional foods and learning more about the history of the Second World War in this area.
