The French language school in Rouen regularly arrange excursions on Wednesdays and Saturdays, but in addition hold a range of events each week to ensure everyone gets the most from their time in France.
There is a “Conversation Club” each Monday (where new and current students can mingle, chat in French and the club is supervised by a french teacher, to ensure everyone is practising their French). A great way to put your French into practise in an informal setting!
Each Tuesday a Film Club is offered at the college – so you can enjoy some of the great and the latest French movies with other students at the school.
Thursday afternoon DELF/DALF students have their exam preparation session or students who are due to leave this weekend take a final test to determine their new language level, at the end of their course.
On Friday a Farewell Party is held at the college, for students due to leave on Saturday morning.
