As a Partner School of the German Government, every year a number of outstanding students of German at The British School of Kuwait (BSK) are awarded a three-week scholarship in Germany, organised by the Goethe Institut.
The scholarships are only offered to dedicated, hard-working students. This year’s four proud recipients are Aikaterini Konstantidiou, Renata Gelevska, Dilan Köse and Mihail Vizitu. In July 2016 they will travel to Dresden, where they will take part in a number of cultural and sightseeing activities, as well as German language classes. At the end of their stay, the students will also have the opportunity to sit in one of the German Government Language Exams as proof of their progress.
Apart from the scholarships, three students at BSK sat the A1 Government Examination in German. This is the first level in the Common European Framework of References for Languages (CEFR), and is usually taken by students at the end of their first year of study.
After only studying German for a few short months, Dilan Köse achieved a solid Pass, Saaniya Zehra Husaini gained a Merit and Narrayan Raam Sankar, who also recently won third place in a regional Goethe Institut Comic Strip Competition, received a Distinction.
These significant achievements mark the end of yet another successful year of cooperation between the German Government and BSK. BSK is privileged to be a Partner School of the German Government and looks forward to further collaborations in the next academic year 2016-17.
