School Trips for Modern Foreign Languages

What better way to learn a new language than being in the country from where it originated? At WST, we offer foreign language trips to a vast range of cultural destinations - perfect for bringing out your students’ inner-linguists.

With the assistance of our experienced travel specialists, we can help you decide which destinations are best suited to meet your students’ learning objectives, as well as making it a memorable experience for everyone involved.

We offer fascinating school trips for the following modern foreign language subjects:

Immerse into the language

One of the fastest ways to learn a new language is to get in and amongst it. Give your students the unique opportunity to read, speak, and listen to a foreign language through real-life situations. Whether it’s exploring the historic cities of Rhineland or the exciting marketplace of Viktualienmarkt in Munich, challenge your students to strike up conversations with the locals and build their confidence with the language.

E3 Trail

We are delighted to have teamed up with E3 Trails, the UK’s premier educational trail writer, to offer an interactive activity for language students. An E3 Trail is a journey of discovery which empowers students to engage in an enjoyable learning adventure whilst visiting the chosen location. Typically taking two-three hours, a Trail is a self-guided walk around many iconic sights of the location of your choice, punctuated with a wide variety of interesting tasks and challenges which your students complete in their teams. The competition element adds an extra edge to the activity as teams vie for the right to be declared the winners. The addition of an E3 Trail to your school travel itinerary will make your time abroad a truly memorable and rewarding experience. Currently available in Berlin, Paris, Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, Granada and London. 

Uncover the culture

Language studies go beyond simply learning and pronouncing words. It’s also about engaging with social groups and understanding their cultural customs. Along with many chances to speak with the locals, grant your students the freedom to learn about the roots of foreign cultures as they explore historical sites such as the Château de Chenonceau in Loire Valley, or by trying new delicacies like tapas in Catalonia.

Fuel their curiosity

Languages bring diversity, but they also bring unity. Visit places like the Louvre in Paris and allow your students to contemplate how art itself is a universal language that brings people together. Also check out the Olympiastadion in Berlin which was home to the 1936 Olympics; an event which further exhibits how language is no barrier in connecting people. Let your school language trips spark your students’ curiosity and develop their understanding of the role of languages in communities today.
