Course Description

Language courses in the mornings

The mornings will be focused on learning either English or German, depending on the selected choice. A placement test will take place beforehand to match students by age and language proficiency level. The courses are held in very small class sizes so that all students benefit from an individualized learning approach.

Afternoons are for Sports, Science, Business or Arts.

Afternoons are devoted to workshops and sports such as tennis, golf, badminton, soccer and beach volleyball. You learn about business, leadership and bringing new ideas to life by running your own shop; you learn science and technology with projects like building rockets to launch in the sky or heat shields on a budget. Creativity and arts might be creating your own movie with the support of a real-life director.
