Rethink Summer School

Summer School can never be the same again!

The RETHINK Summer School presents once again a unique experience for children aged 4 to 16 to use English to explore the world around them through a variety of creative activities.

The aim of the RETHINK Summer School is for children to fully use the language in a creative and entertaining way, exploring and experimenting through English. Children are divided into age groups and with specially selected activities from various scientific fields, graded appropriately for their language competence and cognitive abilities, they practise using the language naturally and spontaneously.

At the same time, they strengthen their language skills as natural speakers of the language through topic-based activities specifically designed to maintain a high interest among adolescents. Sample activities include:

  • Presentation & Debate Skills
  • Health & Medicine Projects
  • Biology & Nature Projects
