Yr 7-9 Students Visit the l’Institut Français


On Friday 20th May, a group of students from year 7 through to year 9 went on a trip to “l’Institut Français" in South Kensington. Founded in 1910, the Institut Français du     Royaume-Uni, comprises a language centre, a cinema (Ciné Lumière) a multi-media library  (La Médiathèque), a children’s library (Bibliothèque Quentin Blake) and a French bistro          Le Bis-trot), and welcomes 200,000 people each year.

It was a really fun and informative day out, as well as a great chance for the students to learn more about French culture. We had the opportunity to explore the multimedia library,          La Médiathèque, a distinctive Grade II listed venue, which is also a window on contemporary France and holds the largest free-access collection of French material in the UK, covering all aspects of French culture and society.

The students were given a presentation and a quiz about sport in France, watched a French film and even enjoyed a 'pain au chocolat' and a 'jus d'orange' with their lunch!
