French study visit to Surf Capital of Europe
Year 10 and 12 French language students report from their study trip to Biarritz:
“Odd sports, surf wipeouts and new cultures experienced. The French study visit had it all. Biarritz in June was an amazing experience with fun, improving French and living with French people.
“We had school in the morning whilst in the afternoons we went surfing, visited a museum and played a basque sport closely related to tennis. Of course we also had a bit of time for shopping or just chilling at the beach. We were blessed with the weather and Biarritz brightened up when we arrived! This allowed us to be outside most of the time.
“We met new people and we are still in contact with some of them. We are more self confident after the trip because it was our responsibility to be at the right place at the right time, and especially to speak French without any help. A highlight had to be the surfing with friends and getting thrown around in the waves. All the students grew closer as well and it is just an unforgettable memory.”
