Getting the students out of the classroom and out into the world is one great way to encourage language learning. Seeing, hearing, experiencing the world of French, and immersing them within that world, is a strategy that can help them develop meaningful learning experiences and connections to their studies.
Below are a list of french-focused field trips teachers can take their students on throughout the year!
