MFL Trips?

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by SueL107, Feb 5, 2012.

  1. Help - I'm in my first year as the ONLY French teacher in my school, and they've never done language trips in the past. My year 9s are now hassling me for a trip that I can take them on. To be honest the last thing I want to do at this stage in the year is to do a trip to France...anyone got any ideas for a language based one-day trip I can take them on that is in this country and wouldn't take too much organising? I'm based in the Midlands. Thanks
  2. When I was in Y12 our French Teacher took us to the French Library in the next big city - perhaps there's a French library in London or even somewhere closer to your town?

    I'm based in the Midlands - a 24 hour visit to Boulogne is just about doable - albeit tiring. I usually go with Schools into Europe, they offer a menu of excursions that you can go on. MM
  5. Thank you - this looks great!
  6. Hi there,
    If travelling to London is an option, you could contact the French Institute in South Ken. They do a nice guided tour of the facilities (in French or English) and will do a French film screening for your pupils if you give them plenty of notice, and all for very little cost. There are also lots of French run cafes and a French bookshop nearby for them to enjoy.
    Good luck!
  7. Try Sport and Educational Travel om 01493 665965 - they offer some good, cheap day trips to France, with worksheets and a variety of places to visit in and around Calais, Boulogne and St Omer.
