Sixth Form French students had the opportunity to travel to Paris over the half term break, accompanied by Miss Mahadevan and Madame Komuves. Students explored the Musée du Louvre and the Musée d'Orsay, in order to gain an insight into French architecture and art. They also had a guided tour in French around the French cinema museum, where they were able to learn about the history of French cinema and practise their listening skills. Students also visited the beautiful Sacré Coeur Basilica and Montmartre area, where outstanding panoramic views of Paris could be enjoyed. Students additionally explored the Georges Pompidou centre, local French supermarkets, bakeries and book markets, and were able to enjoy some traditional French cuisine.
All students completed a variety of written activities in French on the sights we visited, and were exposed to many new French words and aspects of French society and culture. The trip was very enriching and all who participated returned with improved language skills and a greater understanding of French culture.
