Language trip to Montpellier
Published on 07/11/19
During the October half term, thirteen pupils and staff travelled to Montpellier in the south of France. Culturally, pupils enjoyed a fascinating walking tour of Montpellier and an excellent day in Nimes, including a visit to the famous Roman arena and Roman temple. Pupils participated in a treasure hunt around Montpellier which involved finding various monuments and recognising French signs and information. With a hotel very close to the centre, pupils and staff walked around 40 miles in 4 days - a great opportunity to soak up the atmosphere and culture of the beautiful Mediterranean university city.
Pupils also attended 7 hours of language lessons in a French language school, which was intensive but enjoyed by all. In addition to sampling French cuisine in restaurants, the group also visited a wonderful cheese shop and received a detailed explanation of French cheeses as well as plenty of tasters.
This was the first trip to Montpellier for the MFL department and certainly a trip the school will organise again in future.
