At Equity, we believe there is no better way to learn a language than by visiting the country in which it is natively spoken, interacting with locals and learning the cultural customs. Students can immerse themselves in French language and culture in Normandy.
Normandy is a very popular trip for MFL students and with our French language itinerary they will be given the opportunity to learn about cultural traditions and can even taste frog’s legs or snails! French lessons can take place at the chateau and opportunities to practice these language skills are plentiful whether that be at the farmers markets, a working bakery in the local town or a goat’s cheese farm.
Not only do students get to practice their language skills and take park in French language lessons – they also get to experience French culture and traditions. As students develop their French vocabulary their confidence will increase enabling them to interact with locals and see how the language is used in everyday life. Our team of experts will offer advice to help you plan a bespoke itinerary tailored to your learning objectives.
