for primary schools (KS2)
4 days from £214 per person
C’est aujourd’hui que je parle français!
Take your pupils on a PGL trip to France and bring back confident, excited children - children who want to show off their improved French language skills!
Our French Language Detectives course for Key Stage 2 teaches French through achievable, modular activities in authentic, inspiring surroundings.
Whether it's buying a croissant from the local boulangerie or speaking to the locals at the market, it's a great opportunity for some hands-on, practical learning and a chance for your pupils to really make the most of being in France.
Your PGL French Language Representative will be there to support you and help your pupils benefit from every language-learning opportunity.
There'll be a mix of activities to keep everyone engaged during their time away. There’ll also be a workbook for your pupils to complete and bring back to school with them.
It'll be a memorable trip that will inspire and motivate, delivering tangible educational benefits.
Your tailored excursion programme is all about exploring and discovering the history, culture and sights of the region. These excursions are directly linked in many cases to the study modules.
Your pupils will also love our great mix of inspirational adventure activities and busy programme of evening entertainment available at your PGL centre, giving them even more to take home.
They’ll benefit from the chance to develop their communication skills as they work together and support one another, being challenged, being scared – but doing it anyway – plus all the memories they’ve made of their fantastic time in France.

Your primary school children benefit from the support of a dedicated and trained PGL Language Representative who will be familiar with your programme, accompany you on excursions and assist in delivering your study modules.
The authentic language-learning opportunities are backed-up with study modules to give your pupils confidence in basic French – both written and oral.
Interesting and stimulating cultural experiences leave your KS2 (P4 – P7) pupils with a passion for France and all things French, leading to increased motivation and interest in French as they progress through to secondary school.
Pupils find themselves in a stronger position as they join French classes at secondary school, where pupils may have differing levels of French from various feeder schools.
On-site adventure activities improve group dynamics, confidence and communication skills.
Your pupils receive an all-round learning experience, but above all, your KS2 group leaves France with confidence and enthusiasm for the language and the country.
Return travel by executive coach is included in the cost of your trip. Your coach is also available for excursions once you arrive at your PGL centre, subject to EU drivers’ hours regulations.
