On Wednesday 26th February, Senior school Spanish students visited the Europa Centre in Hornchurch, a mock-European indoor village. They were accompanied by the Modern Languages staff, and worked with native Spanish speakers throughout their time at the centre.
Working in small groups, differentiated for age and ability, the students began the visit with lunch in a Spanish cafe, then toured the village with its shops and services. These included a butcher's, a bakery, a grocery store, a cinema, a train station and a tourist information office.
Everyone involved enjoyed the experience, and Mr. Johnson is already planning future visits for different languages and age groups.
