STU­DENTS from the Lit­tle Lan­guage Academy were in­vited to en­joy a meal at Café Rouge in Ger­rards Cross.

They or­dered their cho­sen meals in French and en­joyed a tast­ing ses­sion of es­car­gots, which got a re­sound­ing ‘oui’ from those brave enough to try them.

The chil­dren de­scribed what they liked or did not like about their din­ner – all in French, of course.

Deb­bie Lo­max, owner of the academy, said: “Café Rouge in­vited some of our stu­dents to sam­ple their chil­dren’s menu, and we held two of our weekly classes in the restau­rant.

“It’s so im­por­tant for the chil­dren to get the op­por­tu­nity to prac­tise their French out­side of the class­room.”

Cafe Rouge gen­eral man­ager Stephen Con­don said: “We were very pleased to wel­come the Lit­tle Lan­guage Academy pupils into the restau­rant. Na­tive French­man and Head Chef Pierre Ar­gentin was par­tic­u­larly look­ing for­ward to get­ting their valu­able feed­back on the es­car­gots, en Français, of course.”
