Schedule

Schedule may vary depending on student’s level and time of year.
Classes take place from Monday to Friday and are organised in a "zig-zag" system, which means they take place in the morning one week, in the afternoon the following week and so on. The first day, following a general introduction of the campus and the city, you will sit a language test in order to be placed in a class corresponding to your level. Taught in groups of a maximum of 15 students, the 20 weekly lessons will allow you to develop your skills, be more comfortable when speaking the language and acquire a solid basis for writing. In this relaxed but studious environment, you'll appreciate as much the exciting classes as your numerous new friends of all nationalities. Each week covers a different theme and what you learn in class is linked with activities outside of the classroom.

Do you think you've made progress?
« Ja, in allen Fachgebieten (Lesen, schreiben, hören, sprechen) habe ich fortschritte gemacht. Ich kann nun sicher in Englisch sprechen, ohne zu stottern. Ausserdem hat man sehr viele Schüler von anderen Nationalitäten bzw. Sprachen getroffen, sodass man Englisch sprechen musste. Ich habe mir neue Freunde gemacht, mit welchen ich jetzt in Englisch weiterschreibe. »
School highlights
« Ich habe sehr Freude gehabt, mit den anderen Schüler zu sprechen. In der Schule hatten wir gute Lehrer. »
Top tips
« Zeiteinteilung, wann Schule und Aktivität stattfindet. Wenn man zum Beispiel am Morgen Schule hat und am Nachmittag Aktivität und der neue Kollege es umgekehrt hat, hat man fast keine Zeit zum sprechen. Deshalb sollten Mitarbeiter dort flexibler sein, wenn Schüler wechseln wollen. »

Residence
Staying in a residence is a great solution if you wish to meet and share your daily life with other students. Participants will stay in twin or single bedrooms (on request) and share bathrooms. The residence is approximately a 20-minute walk from the school building. The school’s staff is present and attentive to students’ needs, on a 24-hour basis. Lunch and dinner are delivered to the residence (occasionally meals might be provided in various restaurants in the Cambridge city centre). Packed lunch will be provided on Saturday and Sunday and on full-day trips.
