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 all over Bulgaria come here to study English, make friends, feel the ACS culture and have a week of fun. All subjects from our program are taught in English. We offer a total immersion into an English-language environment.   

Children are divided into groups according to their age and level of English knowledge. Absolute Beginners are also welcome to the Spring School. Our native level teachers in English 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. A creative sketch in our Drama classes sure to make you both laugh and cry will make the kids love the spring school even more.

The American College in 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 we plan to transport our spring school participants into the captivating world of
GIANTS and little people. 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 explore to speak English in a stimulating environment.  

On the last day a short creative sketch will be performed by all participants: An emotional giant spellbound by the lady of his dreams tries everything in his power to match himself to her pedantic requirements. Will ringing wedding bells be thrust into Mars? Or will tears the size of Lake Superior blast even the toughest mountain off the face of the earth?

Natural Science classes take the children on a journey again into the GIANTs – dwarfs world. 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 any sports? We can’t even imagine it. Within the spring school sports program we offer a wide range of games outside in our green park and inside in our modern indoor sports facilities. Consistent with the weather and the students’ capabilities, they play football, volleyball, basketball, softball, frisbee, tennis, badminton, and table tennis. They enjoy also games like ball-upon-rope, dodgeball, relay (race) games, cognitive games, and gymnastics.
