La Vie Parisienne
The French exchange is part of the Twinning between Hounslow and Issy-Les-Moulineaux in Western Paris. Each year Gumley students have the chance to live with a French family for one week and enjoy La Vie Parisienne! We also host the French students with our families too. It is a fantastic experience for our young adults to form new friendships beyond our borders, practice and develop their language skills, and learn more about French culture.
This year, during our students’ stay, they visited La Tour Eiffel, the Palace of Versailles, Montmartre, Le Musée d’Orsay. They also participated in workshops at our French partner school where they had to create a film in two languages, comparing education in France and in England.
