The 'English for Fun' school, which was designed by Madrid-based architecture firm Rica Studio, encourages teaching through play. It's interior design and layout reflects that credo, with bright shocks of yellow and green along the walls and a unique, maze-like furnishing system that lets children play in creative ways.

According to English for Fun's teaching philosophy, learning a new language is a creative endeavor. The school adheres to the Reggio Emilia approach for foreign languages, combining self-guided play with visual learning. Rica Studio's design helps foster this attitude. The partitions between the rooms are made from empty cubby holes stacked to allow the children to climb over them and explore the space.

Ultimately, the ability to creatively interact with the school helps children to learn.
