The course deals with fairly advanced subject matter, but our experienced teachers can tailor the material to suit the needs of the class. At SBC we do all we can to maintain a high morale in class and for all students to feel comfortable with their learning experience.
A minimum level of B1 is advised in order to participate effectively in this programme.
We perform a graduation ceremony at the conclusion of the two weeks, where each graduate receives a certificate of completion.
Students are given access to a wide variety of SBC materials that were created by our very own academic team.
Students don’t have to worry about bringing notebooks or folders, but they are advised to bring their own pens.
Although there is no required reading for participation in the course, it would be useful for students to refresh what they ve learned this year to feel more secure with their English.
“After a summer with SBC I feel a lot different. When I came here I wasn’t quite sure what I wanted to do with my future…by experiencing all of these subjects I’ve got a better picture of what I want to do now. I have learnt a lot and I am ready for my future”
