Engaging school language trips to
Berlin, Germany

Engaging school language trips to
Berlin, Germany

Explore a city with two sides. While the first is a hip and fashionable city – a cultural trendsetter brimming with cutting-edge architecture and a lively, youthful atmosphere – the second is a city steeped in history, where centuries of past events radiate from every street.

On a school language trip to Berlin, students will be captivated by the stories of the Second World War and the Cold War that are still so evident in the many buildings and memorials. Without a doubt, a deeper insight into Germany’s past and present will only drive their desire to develop their language skills.

Packed with a host of leisure activities for students to practice their German – think vibrant markets, relaxing river cruises and majestic palaces – as well as hidden gems to discover, Berlin is perfect for older students who want a taste of big city life.
