I am a new student at TWIS, I’ve only been here for a few months but my experiences so far are fantastic! I’ve had a good time from many exciting activities, fun and interesting classes, cheerful friends and wonderful teachers and staff.
At this school, I’ve made friends from all over the world, and I also like every class because every teacher has their own personal styles of teaching and we have fun and at the same time learn in class. At this school, you will have an International experience and will also improve your English from teachers and peers.
In P.E., we play games that are amusing for all ages and we also do sports like football and dodgeball. In the first unit, every student made a game and we played them in class. We made a game-book containing all the games we played. In the second unit, we learned about football rules and played football. At the end of the game, we reflected on our performance and tried to be good next time.
In French, we learn vocabulary, grammar and we do small quizzes every week. The French teacher, Mr. Sebastien, is always joyful, and everyone is always very active in class. We also went to kindergarten to teach the younger students some French words, and also shared to them a small book we made in class for them to read and learn.
We have a CASE (Creativity, Activity, Service and English) class every afternoon from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m which allow us to choose according to our personal liking or interest. In this school, we have proper facilities for science, design, art, music, a gymnasium and an Olympic-size swimming pool for swimming. I can learn and play with a lot of fun at TWIS.
When I first came to this school, I didn't know what design class was and now it’s one of my favorite classes. I also like how every teacher always teaches in different ways. These are some of the things that I’ve been doing for the past few weeks: I have made a water rocket and we are doing woodworking in design class now, I really like design class because I have always wanted to do wood-working and it’s very challenging. And we do way more other things too.
My favorite class is art, we’ve tried painting a mural at the beginning of the year with Mr. Esteban who is a professional muralist in the US. Now we are learning about calligraphy and which I think is very interesting and I have always liked art a lot.
What I appreciate about the school is also the students, when I came to this school I didn’t know anyone but I made friends on the first day and they are really nice so that’s what I really appreciate about our class. And in this school, the teachers always push our limits to make us better which is also worth appreciating.
