The Modern Languages Department is organising a trip to Strasbourg for S4 to S6 pupils in February. This trip will provide you with an opportunity to widen your knowledge of French culture and improve your listening and speaking skills in French. The language content of the visits means that this trip is more suited to S4 pupils intending to study French at Higher next year.
We would visit Strasbourg from Sunday 17 February to Wednesday 20 February 2013 and will travel with easyjet from Edinburgh to Basle. We intend to stay in the Strasbourg CIARUS Centre, a residence with restaurant for evening meals located in town. We will have a packed programme of sightseeing and visits; we are currently devising an itinerary which, whilst it includes touristic staples such as Strasbourg old town and a river boat trip in La Petite France, will also offer visits of cultural interest – the European parliament, a visit to a French High School after a pen friend exchange, the tour of a gingerbread factory, a visit to the cinema, etc..
If you are interested in taking part in the visit see Madame Naddell
