Grants available to fund reciprocal study visits

British Council Arabic Languages Pack

The Lefèvre Trust is offering grants to UK schools to facilitate reciprocal visits to their partner schools in France.

With a French Language Assistant already in place at your school, a study visit is the ideal way to further encourage a love of language learning in your students. A visit will also give them exposure to authentic language usage, enable them to experience French culture first-hand and boost confidence levels before key GCSE, A level, National Qualification and Higher level French oral exams.

A face-to-face visit is the only thing that really sustains a link. It’s a fantastic experience for pupils, teachers and parents and shows good practice across the local authority.
