French on Location is proud to offer what we consider the quintessential, nine-day trip to Paris and the Loire River Valley, a trip that makes the most of every minute spent on location in France.

As is typical of all of our domestic programs, our trip to France (offered in partnership with ACIS, North America’s premier operator of educational tours to Europe) features fine, three- and four-star, centrally-located hotels, the 24/7 services of a multilingual tour manager, meals highlighting the best of French gastronomy and opportunities to see the French cultural and historic icons that students have been learning about since beginning their study of the French language.

Visits to the Palace of Versailles, the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay, the Eiffel Tower, the châteaux of Chenonceau and Chambord, among others, are complemented by several fun and educational cultural connections. Students will have a pétanque lesson in the Jardin du Luxembourg, will tour Versailles by bicycle, will learn to make brioche in a French pâtisserie and will have a chance to sketch the beauty of Paris in Montmartre.

This wonderful nine-day tour is the perfect introduction to French life and culture and the best possible extension of students’ French classroom at home. Every student will have ample opportunities to speak, read and listen to the language, all while immersing themselves in the culture where the language is spoken. They will never forget their stay in la Ville Lumière!

Our Mission: To keep the study of French fun, interesting and relevant, by keeping high-quality, pedagogically significant French immersion field trips within the reach of every deserving student.
