Holiday Programmes



We organise French or Spanish combined language and cooking programmes throughout the year.

Your young gourmets will learn French/Spanish and the art of French/Spanish cuisine and cooking.

They learn the target language through games, songs and worksheets whilst being introduced to kitchen vocabulary, utensils and ingredients.

They are introduced to the basics of table etiquette plus they get to eat all the yummy meals they create! The kids cook a 3-course meal of French/Spanish specialties every day.

The students receive an exercise book with all the language notes and worksheets as well as the recipes for all the meals. They are encouraged to make those meals at home after the programme.

This programme is open for girls and boys who love food and like to cook and help in the kitchen. The Tutors are native French/Spanish speakers with a passion for food.
