Preceded by air attacks along the French coast and paratroops landing behind enemy lines, the 6th June 1944, or D-Day, marked the start of the Allied Forces invasion of mainland Europe and its liberation from the Nazis.
Visiting the Normandy Landing beaches will enable your students to gain a greater insight into the monumental events that took place during World War II, bringing history to life. Our dedicated and specially trained animateurs will guide your tour, ensuring you get the most out of each visit, both from a historical and linguistic perspective. Each visit and experience is seen as an opportunity to speak and understand French, as well as seeing, at first-hand, some of the most momentous arenas of the Second World War.
Our staff will also provide a full evening programme and help each pupil to complete their own special workbook. We have programmes especially designed for Primary, Middle, Secondary and Sixth Forms, and for every level of French including complete beginner.

Le Château de la Baudonnière: an alternative to a French exchangePublished in the SATIPS Language Broadsheet"For many years, I organised exchange trips to many different areas of France. The trips lasted between three days and two weeks and I took both boys and girls aged between nine and thirteen. The children were all paired with French children of the same age and interests and were given a real insight into French family life. I organised outings during the day, some of them for the English and French children together, others just for the English children. Each year some of the families decided to continue the exchanges and that first school trip was just the beginning of long and very happy friendships, not just between the children, but also between whole families.
