The back-to-school season is bustling in with the promise of new adventures. It also means getting back into the swing of primary and traditional subjects like maths, science, and history. But imagine if your curious pupils could step through a magic portal that whisks them away to far-off lands, without even leaving your classroom! Sounds more interesting, don’t you think?

That’s the enchantment of multicultural days to supplement traditional language learning in primary schools. So, what exactly are they, and why are they so powerful?

Engage and Inspire Beyond Traditional Classroom Learning

Picture donning a beret and munching on croissants while saying “Bonjour” with a flourish. Voilà! It’s a French-themed day, enabling your young students not just to learn about France in textbooks, but to experience its charm firsthand.

Dive Into Different Cultures, Languages, and Traditions

There’s more to multicultural days than getting a taste of foreign cuisines, (although that’s a major perk!). These fantastical days are interactive experiences. For example, a Spanish-themed day gives your pupils a captivating opportunity to shake maracas and try their hand at flamenco dancing, besides tucking in to a cheeky churro or several. It’s like a Spanish fiesta igniting your assembly hall! Olé!

Discover a Whole New Way of Thinking and Connecting with People 

If you’re still wondering, “Why should my school team up with a leading local language school for these epic adventures?” Well, think about this… Language is like a magical key that unlocks the door to a whole new world. Accordingly, imagine equipping students to chat with new friends from across the globe, not just in English, but in their own native language? Plus, they’ll gain a treasure chest of knowledge about different countries – from the food they eat to the games they play.


So, it’s time to rally the troops if your primary school hasn’t yet experienced the joys of multicultural days. They’re like mini celebrations sprinkled throughout the school year, where your children become global explorers, indulging their natural curiosity, and preparing to conquer new cultural frontiers.

At La Academia, we currently offer multicultural days in primary schools in Spanish, French, Chinese, Italian and Russian. Why not get in touch to give your intrepid pupils a unique insight into the country itself, as well as the language.
