Classroom atmosphere :
The educational programme is designed to allow both teachers and students to give their best. One of the particular advantages of Lemania College Sion-Switzerland’s teaching is the opportunity to meet teachers outside class hours.
Lemania College Sion-Switzerland is active and full of challenges for students. In the classroom, students will encounter many teaching and learning styles, e.g. sessions featuring interactive smart boards, conversation-based language learning, teacher-led discussion and debate.
Lemania College Sion-Switzerland integrates technology at all levels : each student is loaned an iPad to maximise his/her experience of the programme and the way of learning.
Lemania College Sion-Switzerland aims at developing the full potential of its students by emphasizing the importance of the curiosity towards the lifestyle of the local population, as well as that of the fellow students coming from other parts of the world.
Some students were born in Lausanne, Geneva or Zurich ; others are expats living in the region; others arrive directly from abroad.
Students participate in numerous extra-curricular activities after classes or during the weekend: sports & arts, leisure activities, lectures.
This multiplicity of students’ and teachers’ experiences, combined with the diversity of our programmes, bring a rich educational mix to all our students.
For many students, living with roommates gives them their first opportunity to share their space with other students, which makes this experience all the more rewarding.
Common areas, study areas and individual areas enable students to find the right place for all their needs.
Common areas: The magnificent outside garden with leisure areas is perfect for activities or just hanging out. Inside the house, the students have common rooms with WiFi connections where they can get together during their free time to read, watch television, play board games or talk about their day. A ping-pong table, a football table and a piano are pleasant additions to the leisure areas.
Study areas: a common study room supervised by a teacher provides the right atmosphere for doing homework and going over lessons. The small desks are designed for individual study or for working in small groups.
Individual areas: on the floors dedicated to private time, the students’ rooms are very comfortable. They are generally shared by 2 or 3 students of different nationalities. Some single rooms are also available. All rooms have private bathrooms.
