Activities and Excursions in Rouen

Social & Cultural Activities For Students

French in Normandy recognizes the importance of social and cultural activities as another way of learning French and experiencing France. We offer activities nearly every day of the week including after-class clubs, bar nights, sporting events, and weekend trips in the region.

Every Monday we offer new students the chance to tour Rouen with a guide and discover our beautiful city! ✨

Social Activities

Indoor soccer: this activity is very popular among our students whether they are athletic or not. The goal is for our students to know each other and socialize and have fun playing football. The positive point is that you can enjoy this activity all year long as you will be indoors and not outside.

International dinner: a great invitation to share and discover the food of different countries of the world. Our students are invited to cook a specialty of their country that they will introduce to students and staff during the international dinner.

French restaurant: discover and taste french specialities. France is really well known for its gastronomy and our students are really happy to taste some of the specialities not only of Normandy but also of different areas of France. It’s also a very good moment for them to learn some vocabulary and practise their French (eg : ordering , asking for the bill..)

Bowling: an opportunity to meet other students from the school and practise their French in a casual setting.

DIY activities are an excellent way to practise the language and learn new words. The activity is led by a local host mom, Nicole, and students make crafts, paint, garden, cook etc.


Our free after class activities are a great way to meet other students and continue speaking French. These clubs take place every day from 16h15 to 17h15.

  • Monday: Grammar fun = to learn grammar using games
  • Tuesday: Theatre club = to work on pronunciation using drama
  • Wednesday: Media club = to practice writing and vocabulary using media
  • Thursday: Ciné club = to relax and enjoy a French movie
  • Friday: SOS fle (tutoring) = to work on your specific French needs
