With a history of fun and learning, our summer school on the Lake of Geneva has a legacy of bringing together students and teachers from all over the world. Whether it be a child who has never lived away from home before, or a boarding school student who wants to get ahead in language classes for the new term, this summer school has something for everyone. Here is a fun video highlighting some of the adventures at Swiss Summer Course!
For an even better sense of the fun that students have at summer school, we have pulled out a few photos from the last few years that show the variety of activities that students engage in over the course of their stay.

Highlights from summer school in the past have included a trip to the famous Chillon Castle on the Lake of Geneva, a visit to Chaplin's World, a large barbecue on the water accompanied by games, colourful disco dances on school grounds every Friday, and a significant increase in students' language learning from practical application opportunities everyday. The following are some photos to illustrate all the fun that was had:

One of the things that makes the Brillantmont summer school unique is the balance between studies and play. In the mornings, students have language lessons taught by our top class instructors in French or English, depending on the student's interests and needs. Each child is tested in the language of their choosing upon arrival at the summer course and is placed in the appropriate class level accordingly. Classes include grammar, writing and speaking as well as the practical application of the language outside of the classroom in real-life exercises in town. This keeps students engaged and helps to speed up the learning process.
In the afternoons, after a wonderful lunch prepared by our in-school chef, students engage in a large variety of sporting activities. This includes both team and individual sports such as volleyball, football, swimming, boating, hiking and more. Weekends and Wednesdays are outing days were the kids get to explore the surrounding area or go a bit further into the mountains or big cities to see what Switzerland has to offer.
