A course specifically for the German Abitur exams - focused and effective

The Oxford Summer School is our specific preparation course for the Abitur. Our Abitur preparation course is aimed exclusively at students in year 11 and above. Its focus is on the final exam and in particular on written expression. This has the greatest influence on grades. Alternatively, the focus can also be on the oral section.

Training with a clear goal

We prepare our students optimally and comprehensively to achieve the best possible grades in their final exams. When putting together personal timetables, we take into account the specific requirements of the desired qualification and the current curricula of the respective federal state. We attach great importance to the ideal composition of the learning groups and take a whole day for a multi-layered placement procedure.

Private lessons for individual development

The lessons are made up of three core elements: Core Lessons, Themes and Options. In private lessons, our teachers focus even more intensively on individual learning goals. Workshops and working groups take place in the evenings. Here, students can continue to practise their language skills outside the classroom - because the best language training is speaking. We therefore speak English with our students throughout their stay at s-a-e-s
