Language classes at

This academy offers an education program from grade six to twelve. The base of the education is for students to foster communication and creativity. To do this, the Harkness method is used consisting in the instructor to not just presenting a concrete subject, but to ask questions to the group so they can activate their mind and reflect. Later on the opinions of the group are analyzed. Thanks to this method, critical thinking is fostered and the various forms of thinking are accepted so even the most timid students can loose their shyness and slowly speak in front of an audience and present their opinions.

Enjoying activities

Students have a busy schedule from Monday to Friday. They combine their training schedule with their classes during the morning or the afternoon (depends on each case). They have more free time on the weekends although competitions are scheduled during this time in or out of the academy.

The academy also organizes entertaining activities and field trips on the weekends since a bit of fun is always great to strengthen ties of friendship, change the routine and allow the mind and body to rest for a day from the busy life of an athlete.

This would be an example of a daily schedule for a student at IMG:
