Our goal is to help children learn English to communicate freely and joyfully with others. Through our conversation classes, children are encouraged to speak English in a relaxed, fun atmosphere through games, lessons, and simple tasks based on Positive, Productive and Playful principles. We prioritize speaking skills and having fun together. The English zum z'Mittag is a weekly time to nourish both bodies and brains.
Adventure Camps help us explore Swiss nature in English. We hope that by engaging with the outdoors in the company of friends, we can make English learning fun.
We bring joy, English, and generosity to our mission projects. Each year we choose a non-profit partner and develop a robust project to support future generations of learners.
3P * Productive * Positive * Playful
Kim has been teaching since 1993, when she started teaching oral health to her patients, as well as in public and private schools, as a dental hygienist. Soon after arriving in Switzerland, her three children inspired her to continue her teaching journey. She realized her daughters' classmates had trouble speaking English, even though some had learned English for 6 years. As a native English speaker, she decided she could help, and thus 3P English school was born. Dedicated to joy and multicultural understanding, she began the first Conversational English class in Otelfingen in 2019.
The "3P" stands for Positive, Productive & Playful -- the values of 3P English School.
In the spirit of playfulness, positivity, and productivity, 3P added English Adventure Camp offerings in the spring of 2020. 3P aims to organize 5-day school vacation camps each fall, spring, and summer. Our camps take place in the Swiss mountains in different neighboring cantons.
Since she was 18 years old, Kim has also served communities through mission trips. So far, she has traveled and served in Mexico, Belize, Cameroon, Nepal, and Romania. Kim has always been invested in mission work, and now the School partners with non-profits to provide health and educational support to children who may not otherwise have access to these resources.
