Learn German Language at The City School!

The City School network offers in-house German Language Course which students can avail at exclusive rates. These classes are available to students from Grades 9 and 10.

The purpose of opening the classes to students from these Grades, is that they can achieve the required language proficiency by the time they complete their A levels. 

There are many benefits of learning a foreign language as it helps to improve memory, increase attention span and improve ability to multi-task, among other advantages.

Germany has No Tuition Fees for International Students:

For students, however one of the biggest advantage of being proficient in the German language is that they can use it to study and live in Germany. Germany is a very attractive education destination, as it offers free of cost study options.

11 out of the 16 states in Germany have no tuition fees at all for international students who have proficiency in German, while some states require a maximum of only 500€ per year. In addition, Germany has the top university education in a wide range of disciplines and all of its degrees are internationally recognized.

The limited to no tuition fees for international students is just the tip of the iceberg. Germany also has the most affordable cost of living in Europe, so students won’t feel cash strapped, if they decide to head towards this country for their higher education.

Moreover, the nation also makes it comfortable for international students to survive there in form of a wide range of  work opportunities. International students are allowed to work for 120 full working days or 240 half working days in a year, in order to support themselves. Typical student wages range from 10 to 15 Euros an hour.

This is in sharp contrast to other countries where foreign students are not allowed to work depending on their visas, or don’t get paid well enough to support themselves.

Germany also provides substantial ease to international students when they have completed their studies. Foreign students are allowed to stay in the country, for 18 months after graduation, in the event that they are looking for a job or staying in Germany to look for a permanent job.

German Language- Path towards a Bright Future:

All these benefits of studying and living in Germany can only become available to Pakistani students, if they become proficient in the German language. Studying Germany right here in Pakistan at discounted rates from The City School, is the best option available to students from Classes 9 and 10.

This way they can acquire German language proficiency by the time they complete their A Levels, and are ready to go aboard for higher studies.

Besides offering foreign language proficiency in the form of teaching German language at exclusive rates, The City School also has highly trained career counselors, who help the students in applying and securing admission in the best German university of their choice.

Thus, in this way the students become well-equipped to pave the way for a bright future for themselves in Germany, through higher education and better career prospects.

ITTE Project showcases Commitment to Quality Teacher-Training

The Initial Teacher Training Education (ITTE) is a specialized programme of The City School, addressing the pedagogical needs and skills required by new teachers, for effective transition into the teaching profession. It is aimed at developing new teachers professionally by giving them a blended learning experience of theory and practice, and thus raises standards by improving the educational performance of The City School’s students.  

This project was initiated in June 2019 in collaboration with the University of Cambridge’s Faculty of Education UK, to train 60 teacher educators across the network. The instructors in turn are now playing an instrumental role in training all other teachers who are new to The City School system or to the teaching profession.

Online Learning at The City School

The world has been shaken by the Corona Virus pandemic which has had an unprecedented impact on the way we live our lives.

In Pakistan, the gravity of the pandemic was fully felt in the week of March 23rd in which the government decided to impose a lockdown in the country, to keep the number of patients of the virus down.

This meant that everyone was required to stay indoors and observe social distancing to stem the spread of the virus.

In such circumstances, The City School held consultative meetings and made in-depth plans to come up with solutions, on how students could best be provided with an education.

Why breakfast is important for children?

Students’ well-being is one of the fundamental duties of a good school. But, at times, our students suffer because of oversight on the part of both the school and parents. This negligence, sometimes, is because of lack of communication between teachers and parents. Breakfast, as we all know, is one of the most important meals and it is often said to be the most important meal of the day “eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince and dinner like a pauper”.
