French Language Tours to Rouen – Introducing French in Normandy

For more than 15 years, Exchange Me have been known for language immersion trips and student exchange programs to Europe. Since last year, we have developed an exciting partnership with a French language school in Rouen, which we couldn’t recommend highly enough. It’s a perfect option for both teachers looking to organise French language tours to France, and students looking to improve their language skills during the Australian summer break.

French Language Tours with homestay in Normandy

Exchange Me’s French language programs to France offer customised courses designed and conducted for a particular group, in combination with a tailor-made tour program through France.

Key features of the program include

  • custom-designed lessons to meet the specific needs of the group
  • interesting and varied range of cultural activities and excursions
  • the option of homestay accommodation with friendly families
  • the option of a full-time tour manager whilst travelling

French in Normandy

The following components are included for all students attending our partner school in Rouen:

  • Meet & greet in Rouen
  • Personalised assistance on arrival and throughout the group’s stay in Rouen
  • Highly qualified teachers whose professional development training keeps them at the forefront of pedagogical innovation
  • A welcome pack with tourism information and a city plan
  • Teaching materials, including a workbook, progress journal, notebook and pencil
  • End of course tests and certificates
  • Free Wi-Fi plus access to the school’s 10 computers, all with free internet
  • Free Rouen City Pass for the leaders, giving discounts in many local businesses for a whole year
  • Daily transfers from host families to school

Afternoon Activities

Teachers and tour leaders can choose from a variety of activities in and around Rouen and Normandy, including

  • Orientation Walking Tour through Rouen
  • Cooking activities, for example Macaron Workshops
  • Full Day Tour to Mont Saint Michel


Engaging in the everyday social life of French families is not only a memorable experience, but the perfect opportunity to build up confidence by being immersed in the language. Students on our French Language Tours will usually be placed in pairs, and (depending on availability) in small groups of 3-4 students. Despite the absence in France of an official ‘Australian-style’ police check, our families voluntarily provide us with a copy of their police records, making French in Normandy possibly the only school in France giving group leaders and parents this peace of mind.

Travel Options & Inclusions

As a fully licensed specialised travel agency, we include airfares, private return coach transfers, a fully comprehensive travel insurance tailored to students, and any services you would like to include. We work with your budget to find the most cost-effective option and ensure that every student will get the most out of the trip – both linguistically and cultural.

We also assist teachers by conducting presentations and information evenings and offering departure and arrival airport assistance. We would love to assist you in planning your next French Language Tour. Contact us for a non-obligatory quote for 2018 or 2019!
