On the 10th of June, we revived the good old tradition of holding a Graduation Ceremony at the Avicenna. During the two years of Covid it wasn’t possible to hold such a high-profile gathering so this year we did it, as a much-anticipated social event. It was a heart-warming sight to see parents and relatives and teachers of our 10 graduating students filling one of our largest classrooms, room 314 on the first floor. So much so that the rest of the AIC students could be seated only in the corridor. The graduating students were led to the [...]
On 31st May, AIC High School students gathered in the schoolyard for their Art trip to the Fine Arts Museum, visiting the temporary exhibition of Hieronymus Bosch. A bright and sunny afternoon with 32 students joining. Students had the chance to visit both the Bosch and the museum's permanent collection as well. Although we made some small efforts to teach them about Bosch's art in advance, we thought it is better to have their personal experience and comments on it so we are going to discuss their impressions in the upcoming lesson. Students were grateful [...]

On the 14. of May 29 students from two EFP classes with their beloved teachers and the AIC guides decided to join the tour to a small castle town,Visegrád, 45 km north of Budapest in the most photographed sight of the Danube Band.

As an innovation regarding our German language programme at the AIC, we decided to give the opportunity to 11 students to spend a week in the Bavarian city Lindau at our partner language school Dialoge. The students stayed with specially selected German host families. We took an ÖBB train from the Keleti Train Station and entered Germany through the Austrian city Salzburg. The Austrian Alpine scenery, watched from the train, was just simply ‘wunderschön’. We changed trains in Munich and continued with the DB down to the Swiss border to reach our destination Lindau. Germany is full of opportunities [...]
