4 Great destinations for language school trips

Language school trips are a great and fun way to help students practice their language skills. They have the opportunity to visit different countries and learn about the culture of the language they are studying, making a real, tangible improvement to their learning.

At JWT Schools, we have chosen some great destinations for language school trips where your students will be able to develop their language skills while enjoying themselves.



Madrid is the capital of Spain and one of the best cities in the country to study Spanish. With its cultural heritage and diversity, there is something for everyone to enjoy. From museums and historical buildings to famous sports clubs, Madrid is a superb destination for Spanish language school trips.

A walk at The Retiro Park or a guided tour in Spanish through the famous Museo del Prado will encourage your students to practice their listening Spanish skills while they explore the work of famous Spanish painters such as Goya or Velazquez.

These are some of our favourite places to visit for your language school trip:

The fountain La Cibeles, a monument that represents a Roman goddess named Cibeles and it’s the symbol for earth, agriculture, and fertility.

Another popular place we recommend visiting is La Plaza Mayor, where your students can have a relaxing time, talking to Madrid local people and enjoying a well-known Spanish breakfast or afternoon snack called “churros con chocolate.”

One of the largest countries in the world, China has a rich cultural patrimony that dates back thousands of years and is always a fascinating destination for travellers, in particular for students looking to practice Mandarin Chinese.

Your students will love discovering China’s many regions and architectural sites, like the beautiful city of Beijing or The Great Wall of China while they listen to the tone and pronunciation of the local people.

For instance, on our trip to Beijing we take time to cook traditional Chinese food with our local families and learn about their culture and language as we make traditional dumplings from scratch.

When you are getting ready for this exciting trip, make sure you pack along with some essential Mandarin expressions in your notebook so your students can communicate with the locals in their native language.
