The Europa Centre is unique as the UK’s only European Learning Village. Within the centre is an indoor town complete with shops, a post office, café and, most importantly, native speaking ‘townspeople’. Each visiting group has exclusive use of the venue. On arrival, our students will be welcomed in the ‘arrival lounge’ where the visit’s activities will be explained. The students will then enter the ‘French’ or ‘Spanish’ town where the native speakers will support and encourage them to use their language skills to complete a mystery-solving challenge and a range of language activities including a visit to the café.
The visit provides a very valuable opportunity for students to tackle real-life scenarios in the foreign language in a tailor-made environment enabling them to practise and enhance their language skills in an intensive and fun way.
