M & N Education
Educational workshops for everyone
We have designed a series of workshops to help you and your family improve your communications skills in a foreign language and to provide ways to meet native people from other countries.
We can put you in contact with people in Spain via letter exchanges, as a family or as a student on your own. We can also bring you close to people from overseas via zoom, to gain fluency whilst sharing news and current affairs from around the world.
“We are M & N” likes teaching languages outside the box ( and the classroom ) and we have endless ideas to do that.
We hope you will find this interesting. This is an evolving page so if you want to hear from us regarding future workshops, we suggest you sign up to our blog here.

If your children missed out on their language students’ exchange during COVID, this might be the closest thing to it. Our “Pictures from” program enables children from England to communicate with children in Spain in a fun and safe environment, to practise their communication skills in a creative way, or simply to learn about the lives of children in a different country.
Sign up for this course and discover how children live in other countries by sharing pictures of your daily life routines.
