Modern Foreign Languages Trips to London
Taking students out of the classroom and into a new environment is a great way to develop their communication skills in the target language. Designed to immerse your students in the country and culture of their chosen language, our London language learning day offers a closer-to-home alternative to an overseas trip.
Getting the opportunity to converse with native speakers in a language exchange, engaging in a cultural activity or watching a foreign film are just some of the activities students can partake in.
The sessions can be tailored to each group's learning requirements, and is suitable for students at KS3, 4 and 5.

Reasons to visit
The group are split into either either pairs or mini groups for the Language Exchange session. They will be given a list of topics they will talk about e.g. their family, their hobbies, their favourite food. Your students will have three minutes per topic and per language to talk and then a buzzer will sound to signal the end of that period. The group will then move on to the next topic for discussion.
The language school's teachers will prepare a talk for the group on an event or a personality famed in the country of the language the group are learning, and the students will then have activities related to the topic.
During the interactive workshop activity, the students would take part in an activity related to the language where they would be making or doing it in the target language. They would be given the instructions in Spanish, French or German and the teacher would be communicating with them in the target language.
Foreign Film Session
Films would be selected depending on their suitability for the group in terms of the content and from a linguistic point of view. Choose from a selection of both classic and more recent releases.
The students would discuss the film before watching it so they would be familiar with the plot and would also be given level specific worksheets to complete afterwards.
