Language Camps at Swiss International Scientific School in Dubai F.A.Q.

1. How are the groups formed?

The inquiries are mainly collected through Google form (you will get a link for the same). During the assessment period we are analysing the inquiries and form tentative groups considering the students’ age, level, program needed.

Once we get a minimum number of participants to open a group, we are contacting the parents and offering to enroll.

If you wish to get the updates about the progress of collecting a batch for your child, kindly contact us:

No, only one language is taught in a group. We are offering a list of languages (English, Arabic, French, German, others) to choose from. Please feel free to check with our coordinators which language groups are more feasible to start this season.

3. How can I register for the course?

In order to register you need to complete the payment (on getting a prior confirmation from us about starting a group). The payment is to be done directly to us. You can either complete it online by card or through bank transfer.

Please note that we are taking the payment for the Language part only. If you wish to sign up for Sports as well, please contact Stryx provider.

4. What shall we do if there are not enough inquiries to start a Language camp?

To be on the safe side you can secure a place for full day Sports camp with Stryx provider.

In case a Language group is collected at some point, you will be informed on the same, then you can ask the Sports provider to make it half-day.

Yes, you can either sign up for Language camp only (Mon-Fri 09.00-11.00 am) or extend the camp by adding Sports afterwards for additional price (11.00-14.00). In order to arrange the Sports camp please approach the Sports provider (or ask us to share your inquiry with them).
