Spanish Language School Trips & Tours
When pupils get the opportunity to visit Spain with NST, a whole new learning experience opens up for them. There’s really no better way to introduce your classroom-based learning than by surrounding your pupils with native speakers and immersing them in the culture and daily rhythms of Spanish life.
From cosmopolitian Barcelona, typified by the architecture of Gaudí, especially the iconic Sagrada Familia, his unfinished masterpiece, the passion from the Nou Camp and the bustle of the Ramblas, Barcelona is a modern, vibrant city that shouts its Catalan heritage from every corner and will fire the imaginations of your pupils.
Traditional Madrid with its museums, architecture, plazas and monuments within the city showcase the many aspects of Spanish history and traditions. The city is ideal for those learning the Spanish Language, as all the signs are in Spanish, unlike Barcelona where they are in Catalan, and many local inhabitants do not speak fluent English, encouraging pupils to use their language skills.
Northern Catalonia and Southern Catalonia provides a host of small towns and villages for groups to explore and practise their language skills in relaxed environments. A great destination for school groups, especially those in early secondary education. The coastal location, secure family hotels and mixture of fun and educational visits are ideal for class-bonding and for practising language skills without being pressured or rushed.
Spanish language school trip enrichment experiences
Challenge, inspire and engage your pupils in the practical application of the target language with our Spanish Language Enrichment Experience in Cantabria! These tours offer fun learning experiences for pupils through activity-based local visits which encourage pupils to engage in the practical application of the target language.
Our native Spanish Destination Representative, Pablo, will introduce your pupils to Spanish cultural activities - such as the tasty Churros Con Chocolate - and encourage the development of language skills whilst having plenty of fun. Pablo is a native speaker of Spanish language too, so your group will be able to practise their language skills with him during their stay. What’s more, Pablo can assist with arranging a local school visit so your pupils will be able to meet and converse with Spanish pupils, and help each other with language skills.
