MFL Trip To Paris Un Grand Succès!

Students studying French and German took part in a 5-day trip to Paris this half term, taking in all of the sights and getting the chance to put their vocabulary skills to the test.

With visits to the Eiffel Tower, Disneyland, Fragonard Perfume Museum, Montmartre and lots more sightseeing, students had a fantastic week and all arrived home having learned so much about French culture and, thanks to Mrs Holgate’s ‘word of the day’ on the coach, with an increased knowledge of the French language in particular.

Below is a short review of the trip by MFL student Jack O’Toole:

“My time in France was very enjoyable – the journey on the coach was about thirteen hours, but it was okay as it felt a lot shorter! We arrived in a small town called Brie. The people were so friendly and welcomed us to their home. After that, we went to the Eiffel Tower in Paris. We climbed so many steps and got up to the second floor, then took a lift to the very top.

The next day was brilliant; we went to Disneyland! It was much bigger than we all expected and was more fun than we could have imagined. The rides were incredible – I want to go back! A change of pace the next day saw us visiting the Artist Quarter, Montmartre – what great views. Later that night we had a disco; everyone joined in.

On Friday, we set off for another long journey home, full of memories and feeling tired. We got back to school at 10pm!”
