MFL News

Phew! What a busy time we’ve had in MFL this term!

The French exchange goes from strength to strength - 21 students took part this year, enjoying a week in Duras in southwest France.  They all showed resilience and greatly improved their understanding of French language and culture.  Highlights of the week were the visits to La Dune du Pyla (the tallest sand dune in Europe) and the picturesque town of Bergerac.  The week was rounded off by a whole school concert in the beautiful setting of The Château de Duras.  Planning starts in earnest for next year!

Student quotes:

“I didn’t want to come home!  I wish I was still there!”

“I understand French a lot better now!”

“ Can we go back in the summer?”
