Our theme for the upcoming semester

Our overarching theme for this semester is geography. We'll be looking at maps, comparing Switzerland with the other countries we know, and learning about mountains, rivers and other physical features. All the topics will provide ample opportunity for students to broaden their vocabulary and to practice their English reading, writing, speaking and listening skills. A series of hands-on and creative activities will keep everybody busy and entertained! We are very much looking forward to getting back to the classroom after the summer break. Our classes resume in the week of September 5th.
