Today, English is one of the most important languages worldwide. Therefore, we English teachers at the Stiftsgymnasium Admont set a high value on our teaching and strive towards planning our lessons carefully and individually to enable our students to interact with people all over the world. Learning English is definitely hard work in terms of studying vocabulary but English should also be fun and made lively by various games, creative lessons, role plays and interactions with Native Speakers.

In the following we will show different facets of our communicative and individual English lessons. Enjoy!

A ghost with a troubled love-life

After reading the story of Archibald, the students were asked to give advice to poor Archibald who was left by his girlfriend even though he endured lots of troubles just for her. Here’s a brilliant example of an e-mail by Felix Hüttenbrenner (2B). Enjoy reading!

Creative Easter Stories

What happens when rolling a dice decides upon the story you have to write?

Here are two examples of Easter stories by students of 2B. With the help of the dice, they got to know about the main character of the story, the setting and the problem that had to be solved. The results? Super creative and funny Easter stories! But have a look yourselves!


Love Letters to David

The students of the 7th form were asked to write love letters to David! After being sceptical at first, they started to thoroughly enjoy their task! Maybe some have even discovered their romantic side!

Telling the way to a knight


Imagine the following situation: a rather clumsy knight – Sir Florestan – asks another knight – Mortimer – to tell him the way to a castle. The way to the castle is rather difficult due to dragons and witches. Unfortunately, it is not just the process of describing the way, that makes it an almost undoable task, it is also the clumsiness and stupidity of Sir Florestan …

Have fun reading some of the hilarious and funny dialogues of 2B! The picture was also drawn by one of the students – thank you, Jolanda Perner!

Human Rights activists


Who were / are the people fighting for Human Rights? What were / are their motivations? What were / are their milestones?

The students of 5A took a closer look at some of the most important Human Rights activists and gathered the most important data on posters accompanying their mini-presentations.


New York City brochures

The students of 4D were asked to create brochures on different topics connected to New York City. Here are some of the amazing results!


The students of the 2nd forms proudly present their fantasy animals.
After having dealth with "Animals from Atlantis" the students were asked to come up with their own fantasy animals. They had to describe and paint their creatures on two separate sheets. All the pictures were hung up in the classroom. Everybody got a description of a random animal and they finally had to find the suitable picture to go with the text. It was great fun and thankfully everybody found the correct counterpart.

SpOOked – a play performed by the Vienna’s English theatre group!


On October, 31st the English theatre group performed their play „Spooked“ live on stage in our school’s big festive room. The students of the 2nd and 3rd forms relished watching the humorous and thrilling play and they especially cherished the actors` friendliness and their willingness to sign autographs.

So what is the play „Spooked“ all about?
