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.
