Languages

The languages department offers a number of well established residential visits:

All students in Year 7 are offered the opportunity to take part in a residential visit to northern Spain (Cantabria) where they can experience the Spanish culture as well as practise the language.

The German Exchange visit with a school in Viersen has proved to be extremely popular and is open to all students, including those who do not study the German language.  This visit really gives participants the opportunity to understand the German way of life and to make new friends.

The Academy hosts a number of Spanish students during the year.  These students join the Academy for a number of weeks, and they follow the timetable of their host student.  This is a wonderful opportunity for the Spanish students and is an opportunity for our students to gain a better understanding of the Spanish way of life.
 
There are a number of families in Madrid who are happy to host Dixons students or to establish exchange visits with Dixons families.
Please contact the Languages Department for further information.
