Language & Culture school trips to Loire Valley
Considered the cradle of the French language, we believe there is no better place to practice French language skills than with a trip to the Loire Valley. There’s plenty to do in the area that will encourage your students to use their language skills in everyday settings. An excursion to Futuroscope, an interactive multi-media theme park offers 3 and 4D cinemas while a visit to Château de Chenonceau provides a deeper understanding to 15th century history in a stunning setting.
