“Thank you for all your help in planning our most recent visit to Rouen. It was great – so well-organised. The families were the best we have ever had and the Macaron workshop was the highlight of the week”

Rouen has been a very popular location for our French school group trips over the years, and for many reasons. The city itself is small enough to explore on foot and its medieval centre and historic connections offer a fascinating insight into European history.  Our school is a family owned and managed language centre which is located opposite the extensive Rouen botanical gardens, and has a friendly, welcoming atmosphere.

There are 12 spacious classrooms, all with disabled access, a resource centre with 30 computers for student use as well as free wife. There are plenty of cafes and shops nearby, a sporting facilities such as pétanque, table tennis and basketball in the botanical gardens.

“We really enjoyed the trip because it was so helpful being able to practice speaking French more fluently. All of the activities were both fun and useful”.
