What do students need to bring?

What about settling in?

The first few days of the course are very important and it is essential that our students develop a positive learning attitude as early as possible. After the first few day’s students should become adjusted and acclimatized the learning environment. Students should enjoy the course, participate fully in class and any other fun activities and most importantly discuss any issue with the teacher or principal, before you know it you will find yourself thinking your language.

If for any reason your son/daughter encounters any difficulty in settling in or is unhappy about anything please contact us immediately. We are always here to help students to enjoy every aspect of the course as much as possible.
