Immersion in another language

Over the last 10 years QE has forged strong exchange programmes with schools in France and Germany.

This term, QE boys visited the UNESCO Heritage site in Lyon, the Roman Amphitheatre and the Monastère de Brou in Bourg en Bresse. The boys also spent a day in the Collège St. Pierre in Bourg in lessons. During the trip to Bielefeld, there was a special visit to the Dr Oetker factory.

“The best way to learn a language is through immersion,” said Head of Languages, Caroline Mulderij. “These exchanges offer a great opportunity to practise language skills in a real-life context.”
