L'insegnamento è stato ottimo, quando non capiva in tedesco aveva la possibilità di parlare inglese, quindi va bene , è stata rispettata la richiesta di non parlare in italiano, quindi ottimo. Veramente soddisfatti

Residence
Divided into different wings for boys and girls, the residence houses students in modern and attractive twin or single rooms which include free Wi-Fi and in-room sinks (bathrooms are shared). The rooms also come with free bed linen (changed every two weeks), but towels should be brought from home. To ensure students’ well-being, the campus staff are on-call 24 hours a day. In your free time, you can hang out with your fellow students playing pool or darts in the common room. Full board is included and meals are served in the on-site dining room.

The junior camp in Engelberg has the perfect schedule of events so you can unwind and have fun after class! The afternoon programme alternates numerous sporting activities on the campus (climbing wall, football, volleyball, basketball, swimming, etc.) with cultural outings, shopping and excursions. You’ll be able to practise your language skills on trips to Interlaken, Zurich or nearby Lucerne – all while surrounded by students of different nationalities and your group leaders. After dinner, the school’s staff has some surprises in store for you whether it be a disco night, fancy dress party or a BBQ – it’s time to party!
