Take Brittany, a new multi media teaching and learning resource for primary schools links with a primary school in Brittany and shows various aspects of life in Brittany to help primary school children develop an understanding of French culture and language. Brittany Ferries has helped to promote and raise awareness of the initiative.

Chris Wakely  who edited the resource says “With languages becoming a statutory part of the primary curriculum in September 2014, schools are looking for exciting and effective learning resources.  Take Brittany is an excellent addition to the Take 10 language resources.”
