Voulez-Vous?!

This show is entirely interactive from the moment two French actors turn up at the school reception unable to speak anything but French.

The show is modelled on a TV holiday programme, including a hilarious game-show: a competition to win a family holiday. The show is interspersed with travel surveys, ad breaks, time checks, catchphrases, and a weather forecast.

Versions of Voulez-Vous?! have been frequently presented with great success for all key stages and for Special Needs schools. So for EYFS/KS1, the show is mainly a ‘geography lesson’, where parts of the audience become different regions of France. For KS2 there’s also a quiz, and for KS3 and 4 the session becomes more of a culture show: café life, fashion, Paris monuments, and the French Revolution. Levels of fluency within the same Key Stage vary hugely from school to school. The actors are brilliant at adapting to the level of each group, both encouraging and stretching language use. Teachers and pupils are often amazed at how every group manages to enjoy themselves entirely in French for more than an hour!

Voulex-Vous?! usually lasts around 75 minutes (we usually cut it shorter for EYFS/KS1, and it can run up to 90minutes for KS3 and 4)

Prices: £350 for one show, £250 for additional shows, plus VAT plus travel costs outside the London area.

“The show was a great success in our school. It was enjoyed enormously by children in years 4, 5 and 6 as well as the teachers. Excellent integration of different language topics; a very professional show, thank you.”

We also offer a variety of INSET programmes for MFL. These are sometimes organised for a group of schools, and we are also often booked by Teacher Training institutions to provide a session on how to use drama in the classroom. Please enquire for more details.
