Kaplan war genial für mich! Es waren natürlich spezielle Zeiten (Corona-Virus), trotzdem war Kaplan immer ein geschützter Ort, wo ich mich sehr wohl fühlte. Leider konnte ich nur an einem Freizeitangebot teilnehmen. Alle anderen mussten wegen Corona abgesagt werden. Dafür habe ich diesen einen Ausflug umso mehr genossen!

« Ich denke, ich habe im Englischen grosse Fortschritte erzielt. Die Schule hat ein super, gut organisiertes Lernprogramm und alle Lehrpersonen, die ich kennengelernt hatte, waren sehr kompetent.Am Nachmittag, nach dem Unterricht, habe ich oft das Schulmaterial repetiert und Filme auf Englisch geschaut. So kommt man schnell vorwärts. »
