GCSE French Revision in Vendée



"It was an exceptional course, greatly improved my skills in the language and helped me gain confidence in my linguistic skills. Very friendly, helpful family,. I wont forget any of what was taught over the weekend" (GCSE student from Kent)





The course fees include the price of accommodation, breakfast, lunch and refreshments. There are various options available for the evening meal, such as self catering or eating out at a local restaurant (transport provided).



Teenage Students


Parents are very welcome to accompany teenage students and family accommodation can be provided. Teenagers travelling independently are supervised from the airport at arrival, throughout the course, until their return to the airport.





One-to-one with a native French speaker


During the course, you will have the opportunity of a one-to-one with a native French speaker with no English ability. The experience will allow you to really practise your French conversation in a real situation. 


English teenage students are always paired with a French teenager and the conversation is very informal and often continues over lunch. Also, in the evening, we often arrange for French teenagers to come to the restaurant and join you for the meal, to encourage even more French conversation.


"The opportunity to have a one-to-one conversation with a local resident was extremely enjoyable and a real boost to my confidence." (C, from Worcester)
