French Language Detectives at château du tertre for secondary schools

J’aime bien parler français au marché, au café...partout!

Our French Language Detectives course is a great way to add even more value to your French trip.

As your students explore the local villages, interview the local people and buy from the local stores, they'll get the chance to practise their French in authentic situations - helping to build their confidence and inspire a passion for the language and culture of France.

Your PGL Language Representative will deliver achievable, modular learning opportunities for your students at KS3 and KS4 so they can make the most of being in France.

It's an inspiring trip that can help improve take-up of French at GCSE and raise examination grades. It's also an experience your pupils will remember for years to come.


You can choose to take part in inspiring outdoor adventure activities available at our centres to further enhance the learning opportunities for your group and complete the PGL experience.
