Describe the teaching methods (theory, practical and projects) and assessment of students:
Väčšinou sa jednalo o dôkladne pripravenú prezentáciu lektorkou/lektorom,počas vyučovania lektori vyvolávajú,hovoriť,čítať,ísť písať na tabuľu. Skoro na každom predmete sme museli urobiť power pointovú prezentáciu a odprezentovať ju pred spolužiakmi a lektorkou. Lektori boli veľmi féroví a hodnotili naozaj všetko.

Quality of teaching in comparison with home school:
SISU výuka sa mi páčila oveľa viac, lebo bola zameraná na výuku jazyka, čo mňa osobne baví najviac. Prístup lektorov bol tiež oveľa priateľskejší a prišiel mi aj férovejší.
