The annual trip to Paris for the students who have chosen GCSE French has been a success each year! The trip takes place either at the end of year 10 or beginning of year 11 – perfect timing for the speaking exams! We’ve been at the Christmas markets along the Champs Elsyées, celebrating Bastille Day and watching the Eiffel Tower light up the night sky! Students get to practise their French in everyday situations while gaining an understanding of the French culture and lifestyle. We make sure to take in all of the famous Parisian monuments as well as tasting French gastronomy such as ‘les escargots’.
