The Opal Coast is an ideal destination for groups seeking to enhance language skills through a range of educational and cultural visits. Students completed a guided tour of the historic town of Boulogne sur Mer and practiced their language skills in the local shops. They also learnt about the industry of chocolate making watching demonstrations of melting, moulding, a guided tour of the workshop and the chance to enjoy tasting samples.
At a working snail farm, our group discovered how one of France’s most famous foods is reared. All then sat back and watched which of our students would be the first to sample one for themselves.
At the local boulangerie, students watched and listened to the baker describe, in French, the process of making traditional bread and croissants, before getting the chance to produce and eat their own.
Lastly, students toured a sweet factory located in Boulogne-sur-Mer, where students learnt from the French commentary, demonstrations and were able to taste the delicious sweets produced.
