As the 2021-2022 school year draws to a close, our focus begins to shift towards the 2022 Summer Language Program. This summer, three sessions are scheduled:
Session 1: July 10 to July 22
Session 2: July 24 to August 5
Session 3: August 7 to August 19
Summer Language Program Director Laura Fox is looking forward to her first full summer as director and is eager to welcome students from around the world.
“We are very excited for the Summer Language Program, 2022. Last year, while a wonderful experience, the staff had to get pretty creative in coming up with ideas for fun activities that also made sure to follow all COVID restrictions put in place by the Austrian government. This summer, fortunately, it appears that there will be far fewer COVID restrictions, and thus the possibilities for activities have multiplied. For example, our day trips last summer needed to be close to home, but this summer we can go further away to places such as Innsbruck, Munich, Vienna, etc. On rainy days, we won’t be limited by the size of our group, and we can explore places like museums, indoor water parks, the cinema, the climbing gym, or bowling,” said Fox on the 2022 SLP outlook.
The Summer Language Program at the American International School-Salzburg provides intensive German or English courses for students ages 10 to 18. It is designed to improve students’ language skills in German or English while involving them in a fascinating and enjoyable program of discovery, activities, and social sessions which can be combined to six weeks total. Every session includes a wealth of cultural and entertaining activities and excursions to complement the language learning in the classroom.
Three to four levels of language study are offered during each of the summer sessions and are taught by the highly qualified members of the school’s teaching faculty. At the start of each session, all students are tested and placed at the appropriate level for the session.
The summer English courses are of particular interest to students who have applied and have been accepted for the academic year at AIS-Salzburg. These students are encouraged to participate in the full summer session (six weeks total) in order to improve their English language skills and become familiar with our school and our staff. High-school credit can also be earned upon successful completion of the six-week course.
