British Spanish Schools Exchange Programme
The assimilation of languages and new technologies is becoming increasingly important throughout the world. One of the key factors in learning a foreign language is the incorporation of new methods that reflect modern advances in technology coupled with direct human contact.
It has been shown that the earlier an age a student begins to study and enjoy the learning of a foreign language the easier it is to gain fluency.
The study of the two most widely spoken languages in the world, Spanish and English, is on a marked increase respectively in both the United Kingdom and Spain. See report >>
Canterbury Consulting Spain, as a centre of The College of Teacher, and in association with the following organizations: Centro de vacaciones Embalse de Benagéber, CEI El Jarama And Granja de Montseny. Has designed and implemented a language exchange programme that pairs up British and Spanish schoolsthrough the following initiatives:
- Initial contact via exchange of e-mails and power point presentations between paired children and study groups from each school.
- Regular Skype connections for paired and group work
- Project work based on specific subjects that are put in to practice during the school visits.
- Yearly school visits with groups from both paired schools spending 5 days together at one of our associated educational centres, while enjoying multi-adventure activities.
The design and implementation of this programme is adapted individually to each participating schools needs and is considered as a complement to the school´s language curriculum.
The Britain Spain Language Exchange Programme provides a special incentive for students to learn and enjoy a foreign language.
In addition to gaining valuable language skills it will allow all participants to experience another culture which will serve them well in their future.
