A trip to Paris

The Higher Line French trip to Paris was a great success and the 13 Poets and Rhetoricians gained a great deal from being able to practise their French in such splendid surroundings. Here, some of them give their account of the experience. The trip to Paris was a brilliant way to end the first half of the Christmas Term. Although only 3 days long, we managed to fit in many outings that definitely made the time well spent. My personal highlight was the visit to The Palace of Versailles, and...
