School Groups France

School Groups France & French Language Study Programmes

Cactus Language organises fully tailored, affordable School Group France Trips for children and teens. A school language trip to France will not only improve your students’ level of French, it will also give them the motivation and opportunity to practise speaking French everyday, in real-life practical situations. Our trips also provide first-hand insight into the French culture and way of life. Our school group trips are affordable and school group leaders and teachers participate free of charge.

Our ‘School Groups France’ trips are full-immersion experiences. The French language lessons are delivered solely in French and are taught by qualified and experienced native French-speaking language teachers. The daily activities programme is tailored to your specific requirements, as are the accommodation options which range from homestay families, to halls of residence and hotel options. The proximity and accessibility of France to the UK means that you can take a trip from two days to two weeks. We also provide parents with a fully comprehensive guide that answers all of their concerns and questions. Simply tell us your requirements and budget and we will do the rest!
