Lille work experience trip helps languages pupils improve their French

Work experience pupils in Lille

A week working in French schools and shops was the perfect way for some of our Sixth Form pupils to improve their speaking and listening skills in the language.

The week of work experience saw our pupils stay with families in the northern town of Armentières, near Lille, giving them an insight into the cultural – as well as the working – life of the French.

During the day, pupils headed off to their new jobs in primary schools, bakeries, discount stores, corner shops and at drinks delivery companies where they had to communicate entirely in French – a tough and daunting task at first, but one which everybody found hugely rewarding.
