For me, Lemania International School Altdorf is my second home. It's a place where I can enjoy life and make progress out of mistakes. I have learned about the importance of self-discipline and have become a principled person thanks to the help of friends and teachers. Free-time after class is always full of various activities. These relaxing exercises enable me to maintain a well-rounded lifestyle. I have noticed improvements in my characteristics and habits. I strongly believe that choosing to study at LISA in this gorgeous country is the best life decision I have made so far.
The teachers are really kind and their way of teaching is really interesting. They are also very motivating. In addition, I have joined so many extracurricular activities, such as art club, cooking club and snowboarding, which always made me feel energized. Overall, having this experience has made me stronger.
This is my second year at Lemania International School. Over the past two years, I have not only gained a lot of knowledge from my kind teachers, but I have also stepped outside my comfort zone and experienced what it is like to live in a new foreign language environment. I am sincerely grateful to have had such a unique experience and to have studied and lived with my classmates. I'm pretty sure this unforgettable experience will benefit me for life.
