school language trips to
Barcelona, Spain

For a Spanish adventure that’s as colourful as the land itself, set your sights on a school language trip to Barcelona.

Whilst you’ll tick off those big-hitting hotspots (because let’s face it, they’re popular for a reason), we’ll help you escape the hustle and bustle and experience this well-known city through its lesser-known sights.

You’ll explore hidden barrios full of character, treasure-hunt your way around the city’s quieter corners and whip up some authentic Spanish food in a cookery lesson – all the while developing your Spanish and living the culture. Put your phrases into practice as you stroll down the tree-lined boulevard of La Rambla, check out the architectural gems of Gaudi and barter with the stall-holders at Boqueria Market.

But the best thing about Barcelona? Most locals are bilingual, speaking Catalan and Spanish, making it an eye-opening linguistic experience.
