Spring School 2019

April 1 – 5, 2019

The ACS Spring School is the perfect place for your 6 – 12 years old child to spend the spring vacation. Children from all over Bulgaria come to the college to study English, make friends, feel the ACS culture, and have a week of fun. All subjects on our program are taught in English. We offer total immersion into an English-language environment.   

Children are divided into groups according to their age and the level of English knowledge. Absolute beginners are also welcome. Our native-level English teachers have the highest international qualifications and thorough experience with children of all ages. 

Our daily program, from 9:00 am until 4:30 pm, combines learning English with exploring the ACS century-old park in the Nature Science classes, and a lot of movement in the sports classes. Our drama performance, certain to make you both laugh and cry, will make the kids love the spring school even more.

The American College of Sofia provides all learning materials. Lunch and afternoon snacks are served at the College canteen. There is also a medical team on site.

In English classes will transport our spring school participants into the captivating world of giants and dwarfs. Attendants will greatly enhance their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills through the most engaging comical fantasies. Books, film, educational platforms, and even an interactive animated virtual world carry a wealth of new vocabulary. Children will learn English in a stimulating environment.  

On the last day, a short performance will be performed by all participants: An emotional giant spellbound by the lady of his dreams tries everything in his power to live up to her pedantic requirements. Will wedding bells ring out on Mars? Or will tears the size of Lake Superior wash away even the toughest mountain off the face of the earth?

Natural Science classes take the children again on a journey into the world of giants and little people. Where do our biggest and smallest populations live? Why does height vary across continents? A fascinating exploration across the world awaits you! 

And what would be a spring school without sports? We can’t even imagine it. Within the spring school sports program we offer a wide range of outdoor games in our green park or indoors in our modern sports facilities. Depending on the weather and the students’ capabilities, they may play football, volleyball, basketball, softball, Frisbee, tennis, badminton, and table tennis. Younger kids also enjoy games like ball-over-rope, dodgeball, roleplaying, relay races, cognitive games, and gymnastics.
