Linking the outcomes of our language programmes to the MFL curriculum

Our unique learning programmes at the Chateau and La Grand'Ferme cover more of the aims and outcomes of the national curriculum for MFL than traditional school trips.  This is because they are designed to provide more opportunities for speaking and listening, with a broad range of vocabulary used in real-life scenarios in a fun and meaningful way.

benefits of french language trips


To demonstrate the educational value of our French language trips we have aligned the outcomes to the MFL curriculum at Key stage 2, 3 and 4. This helps to give teachers more support pre, during and after a school trip:

  • Ensure the trip’s learning outcomes are focussed to your group and their targets
  • Demonstrate the further educational value of an immersive language trip in comparison to a traditional school trip
  • Support the trip’s assessment and impact on learning with key aims and objectives made clear and measurable from the outset

How do Voyager language school trips deliver the curriculum aims?

The benefits of language immersion in learning are widely recognised, as documented by the Association of Language Learners, and so form a fundamental aspect of our language school trips.

Beyond the typical school trip, our programmes truly immerse learners with native speaking instructors to lead all activities and excursions, giving students authentic exposure to the language during their time with us. Below, you can see these additional educational outcomes delivered by our language programmes in comparison to conventional school trips.

Over the course of your language immersion programme, our native instructors will lead the group entirely in the target language on a range of activities, be it a cooking a local dish, building a raft or reflecting on their day in their journal. This promotes the application of new vocabulary and understanding through discussion and questioning, with additional writing opportunities available in the exclusive workbooks offered as part of our language trips
