Swiss schools provide the finest educational experiences children can receive, regardless of whether they’re on full academic programmes or shorter summer courses. Why is this? Let’s take a look at the Brillantmont Summer Course and find out!
Further to our earlier blog post about the Brilliantmont Summer Course, here are five key reasons why children excel at Brillantmont each and every summer.
1. Small classes; Lots of Learning!
We have highly trained, motivated and dedicated teachers to educate and inspire children with a variety of modern methods for the teaching of French and English. The language curriculum covers various aspects of the chosen language – grammar, vocabulary, oral fluency and the small groups ensure that adequate time and attention is given to all.
2. A fantastic social atmosphere
There’s more to life at Brillantmont than classroom lessons. We offer a vast and extensive social programme of events for the duration of the Summer Course, including cultural visits to Lausanne and the surrounding area, sporting activities, adventurous activities and much more.

3. A safe, comfortable, welcoming environment for living and learning
Summer Course students spend as long as six weeks with us, so a welcoming, secure environment is just as important as the educational and social aspects. The Brillantmont staff is there to children as they settle in and make new, potentially lifelong friends, and Switzerland is a country renowned for its safety and discretion.
4. The delights of Lausanne
With Lausanne, Lake Geneva (or Lac Léman to the locals), and the Alps right on the doorstep, Brillantmont is situated in one of the most stimulating regions in all of Europe. The students can try out their language skills as they discover the local area.
5. The right ingredients plus great teaching equals successful, happy children
In short, our students excel because Brillantmont provides them with everything they need to improve their education, while at the same time enjoying life and fostering friendships that will last a lifetime. Every aspect of the course is designed to help children learn a language, while also having fun and making the very most of the summer weeks.
