Essay Training

Writing an essay is a key element of competence

The written aspect says a lot about the maturity of the student and the intellectual engagement with his/her environment. Writing an essay is an essential part of the secondary school entrance examination. Linguistic expression is a key competence and has a corresponding weight in grading.

In our specific essay course, the requirements for an examination essay are specifically addressed. Students will deal with the different types of text that can be chosen in the entrance examination and learn how to structure an essay in a formally correct way. In addition, the students learn how important it is to write an essay with great precision and how it can be analysed.

In addition to these basic skills, the students are given the opportunity to work on their vocabulary and stylistics in targeted writing training. In small groups, individual supervision is guaranteed, so that each child can be supported specifically.
Finally, in the essay course the basics of orthography and punctuation are repeated so that the students can write their essays with as few mistakes as possible.

Each essay course includes an essay correction with a comprehensive written report including an error analysis. The grading is based on the grading system of the cantonal gymnasiums. This allows students to demonstrate what they have learned after the essay course and gives them an assessment of whether they meet the requirements for admission to the gymnasium.
