France and Italy Study Tours

The Languages Department at De La Salle College offers in‐country Immersion Study Tours to both Italy and France. Students are able to supplement and consolidate their language studies by travelling overseas and experiencing the language and culture first hand. The experience of full immersion is exciting and extremely beneficial to a student’s language acquisition and can contribute to a greater appreciation of a country’s history, art and architecture.

Currently, the College has a group of nine students and three staff who have travelled to France, enjoying the culture and lifestyle… and the magnificent weather! The students have been attending French school with their French “brothers” and are staying with them in their family home as part of an Exchange program that De La Salle College has set up with a school in Bordeaux.

The students are having a wonderful time and are loving the full immersion experience. This experience will not only give the students life‐long memories and contacts but will also help incredibly with their future French language study, both here at the College and beyond.

The France and Italy Study Tours are open to students who wish to expand their studies in French, Italian, Art, History and Architecture. An opportunity to travel to Italy next September will become available soon and there will be more information about this in Term 4.

We wish the French team all the very best and a special thank you to the three staff members for their time and dedication on this trip; Mr Thierry Moran‐ Study Tour Leader, Ms Jess Stevenson and Mr Ben Williamson.
