ISSOS is a fully emersive English programme. Our students come from over 80 different nationalities and we mix native and non-native English speakers at all times.
During the three-week English Language programme, our teachers will use a wide variety of techniques and supplementary materials including video, music, newspaper and magazine articles, as well as out of classroom assignments to ensure that our classes are fun and students are motivated to learn.
Students are taught English by addressing subjects that are of interest and relevance to them and we take this opportunity to educate students on world issues affecting them today: bullying, social media, politics, climate change, current affairs and more.
This nurturing yet challenging atmosphere will help all students make significant progress and develop communication skills necessary to function efficiently and effectively in both social and academic settings.
Each student combines this academic summer school programme with one of our exciting elective summer courses making this unique program a balanced and exciting summer experience.
