why will students learn from BON VOYAGE?
We asked French teachers on our Bon Voyage tour last month:
Key vocabulary and repetition
“Great fun with lots of useful vocabulary repetition too”
(Holidays, travel, directions, the weather, family, food, numbers, hobbies and interests)
Applying classroom knowledge and skills to understand spoken French
“It brings the language to life. Mime, gesture and humour make the story very clear.”
“Pitched perfectly for our Year 8.”
“Even the Primary Schools we invited were amazed by how much French they understood”
Engaging interest in the French language
“It was really, really good. It was like watching a theatre and gong to the circus at the same time” (student)
“Really energetic performance.”
Gaining the confidence to speak spontaneously
“I particularly loved the audience participation .We will be booking you again.”
P.S. They also said “absolutely fantastic, as ever !”, and “awesome !” (Student) and “we thoroughly enjoyed your brilliant performance “

What is BON VOYAGE about?
Bon Voyage Pierre flies in to the sunny south of France for a surfing holiday with his cousin, Lola. All Pierre wants to do is surf but getting there seems to be a struggle for our simple soul!
Lola tries to keep Pierre on track as they try out local transport and follow directions to the beach. Finally they arrive at Surfers Cove – but what’s happened to the weather, how can Pierre surf on an empty stomach and what happens if he is photographed riding a wave with his hair out of place?!
Sun, sea and surf are all Pierre dreams about. Will he ever make it to the water to catch the ultimate wave?
