school language trips to
The Opal Coast, France

The perfect stepping stone for a first language trip, the Opal Coast is a beautiful introduction to the enchantments of France.

Its youthful, easy-going vibes and close proximity to the UK make it an ideal option for younger groups, offering plenty of lesser-known opportunities for students to try their hand at speaking the local language. 

Named so for its ever-changing fusion of greys and blues in the sea and sky, the Opal Coast is a beach-side haven with that authentic French feel. Pretty promenades and golden sands make the perfect backdrop when conversing with the locals, all the while picking up new words, fillers and phrases. And the sugary delights of local chocolateries and confiseries only sweeten the deal, promising engaging (and delicious!) guided tours for a taste of French cuisine.
