Europa Centre for Languages

Language School Visits

Havering Adult College are thrilled to be launching a revitalised range of Language Learning Experiences with the renowned Europa Centre in the heart of Upminster. Aimed at schools themselves, as well as local pupils from Primary and Secondary education, the vibrant and unique atmosphere at UK’s only European Learning Village has to be experienced to be believed!


Over 100 schools from around the country regularly take advantage of the diverse and immersive Language Learning Experiences (LLE), which can be tailored to suit any school’s specific age range and language needs. Several LLE Packages are available, all including the opportunity to access not only the magical learning village environment but also to make use of the experienced and gifted Language Assistants who will be your learning guides for the duration of your stay!


Whether your school party want to take part in a missing person investigation, or a treasure hunt, or whether they want to create and record their own radio broadcasts, the Havering Adult College Language Learning Experience at the Europa Centre is the ideal place to come, to learn and to stretch your language skills. Packages are available in French, Spanish, Italian and German.
