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!

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?


„I liked to read the book because it was very interesting and exciting! (Max, 2B)

„My favourite character is Washington. He is so funny. Washington has clever ideas and often helps his sister. What is more, I like Virginina too. She loves history and so do I.“ (Jasmin, 2A)

„I liked the booklet and the performance on stage. It wasn’t too lomng and it was funny. It was a cool test and also very thrilling.“ (Mirjam, 2B)

„My favourite character is Washington because he plays funny video games and I also like Virginia. I don’t like Mrs. Otis because she wants to sell the castle“ (Anna, 2B)

„I liked to read the book because I love to read fantasy books. Yesterday we watched the performance on stage. That was so cool!“ (Johanna, 2A)



The students of 4C were asked to read some English books. Out of these they chose their top 3 and then presented them in class. They set up tables with decorations and treats, then answered all kinds of questions regarding their books. Everyone – including the teacher – now has some ideas on what to read in the upcoming summer holidays.


UNCLE BILL’S WILL – a play by David Taylor performed by 3D

Drunken sailors, stupid pirates and witty children searching for a treasure? Combine all that and you’re in the middle of Uncle Bill’s Will by David Taylor. He himself led the theater workshop and the students of 3D were enthusiastic about putting another script – after having already performed The Secret Gate in year 2 – into reality. Jack Sparrow may have been one hell of an influence. Thanks, David, for another awesome workshop!

Dear Mr. President


Global climate change has already had observable effects on the environment. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted and trees are flowering sooner, because Earth's average temperature has increased about 2 degrees Fahrenheit during the 20th century. All of this is a pretty BIG deal- for us, but for future generation as well. 

Someone who likes to think BIG is the 45th President of the United States, former businessman and reality TV personality, Donald J. Trump. Sadly, Mr. Trump thinks climate change is a hoax, or even better: A Chinese Invention. 

Learning about and studying up on all kinds of climate facts and changes during their English lessons, 6A put their formal letter writing skills to good use and sent the US president some educational messages on why climate change is real and how he could help to solve it. According to their motto 'Make Climate Great Again' the students hope for their letters to be received  by the White House in Washington and to make a positive impact on current American climate politics. 


We hope to hear from you soon, Mr. President.
