A group of French students had a French lesson with a difference when they attended the press launch for the new children’s menu at Le Bistrot Pierre.

The Year 7 students have been studying breakfast, lunch and dinner vocabulary as well as restaurant role-play as part of their French lessons so they were very keen to put their knowledge into practice in a real-life French restaurant.

The students' first challenge on arriving at the restaurant - which is in Plymouth's Royal William Yard - was finding as many French postcards (which had been placed around the bar area) as possible to win a prize.

The lucky winner was Jay - who was presented with a voucher for a meal at the restaurant with his family.

Jay said he was "very pleased" to have won.

 "I am going to use it on my birthday," he said.

"We had a really fun morning - it was a really good way to practice my French. For instance if you wanted your drink refilled you had to ask in French.

"My favourite dish was the fish, I think I might have that again when I come back."

Students were given a tour of the kitchen before being given the chance to ask questions in French to the French-speaking waiting staff.

 They also got to try out new activity packs containing games and words in French.

 "They found it nerve-wracking but great fun," said Languages teacher Miss Freeman.

"They were served a French banquet, buffet-style, and were really engaged when prompted to ask and answer questions about the food and drink in French. The Herald attended the event and interviewed some students whilst other students posed for a photograph in the chef’s kitchen.

"I am delighted at how well-mannered and enthusiastic the students were on the day, they were a real credit to the College.

"Our special thanks go to the staff at Le Bistrot Pierre and everybody at Onshore Marketing for their help with the planning of the trip."
