   Christmas markets in Belgium and Lille

The MFL department were delighted to run another Christmas trip to Lille this year for our students. We left Stretford on Friday 30th November and returned Sunday 2nd December. The trip includes a two night stay in a Château d’Ebblinghem near to Lille, where students were immersed in the French language and provided with a range of different French cultural and linguistic activities (crêpe making, visit of a Chocolate shop, Christmas activities, town trail of Boulogne-sur-Mer and the visit of Tyne Cot British Cemetery). We will also visit the Christmas market in Ypres as well as the famous Lille Christmas market providing students with an authentic opportunity to practise their French language skills
