Course Summary

10 Students

16 - 18 year olds




Rouen is the capital of the beautiful and historic region of Normandy. Only 1 hr from Paris by train and famous for its art, cinema, fashion, food and culture, Rouen is the perfect location for your Leaving Cert prep course this summer. To top it all off, Rouen is close to the coast and the famous beaches of Normandy. In Rouen, we work with the number one, award winning French Language School in France called French in Normandy. Their teaching methods are being used all over the world to teach foreign students how to speak French.

Our LC prep course in Rouen departs on the 4th of June 2018. You can attend for 2, 3 or 4 weeks. There is no accompanying group leader on this course. There will be a group leader provided by the language school once the students arrive in Paris. The group leader will be for the Stein Study group only. The group leader will create a watsapp group before the students arrive so everyone knows where to meet in Dublin airport. 

There are 15 hours of general French lessons per week included. These classes are divided into different modules made up of Listening, Spoken, Grammar, Reading, Writing and Comprehension. During these lessons, the students will be mixed in with International students in small groups. The students will be placed in classes appropriate to their level. Students will take an online level test before they arrive and an oral level test on the first day. 

After lunch, students will be in a closed group for Irish 5th year students that are going into 6th year in Sep 2018. They will have 10 hrs of classes per week. The teacher is highly skilled. Students will be able to go through past Leaving cert Papers and work on oral comprehension. 

In the afternoon, French in Normandy offer daily clubs. 

Monday - Grammar Fun

Tuesday - Theater Club

Wednesday - Book Club 

Thursday - Cinema Club

Friday - One to One Tuition available for everyone at no extra cost
