English is the language of instruction at AMADEUS Vienna. In addition, once a solid level of academic English has been attained all MYP students study German. Beginner Spanish can be studied within our Co-curricular Programme.
To support our commitment to multiculturalism, our educators come from a diverse range of international backgrounds. All our faculty are trained in teaching the MYP.
MYP Projects (Community and Personal)
To help our students prepare for the rigours of the IB Diploma Programme and adult education beyond, all students complete a Community Project in grade 8 and Personal Project in Grade 10.
MYP Community Projects
The Community Project is completed in Grade 8, and it prepares students for the Personal Project in Grade 10, as well as the CAS Project in the Diploma Programme (DP). All Grade 8 students must be involved in The Community Project.
As the name suggests, the community project focuses on students providing a service in a community of their choice. In teaching our students to become global citizens, this project gives students the opportunity to contribute and devote time and energy to make a difference in the lives of others. The Community Project is a yearlong project, which gives students time to research, investigate, plan and then take action. At the end of the project, students will produce a report on the entire process and will present their outcomes and experiences to their peers. At the end of the year, the Community Project will be assessed and students will receive a grade for their effort.
This project may be done individually or in groups of two or three students maximum. The choice of the topic for the project is made in consultation with the project coordinator who has the responsibility for supervising the development of the project according to the assessment criteria. Finally, a teacher supervisor will oversee each project. Supervisors are there to guide and support the student(s) through the entire process.
MYP Personal Projects
This will be the largest independent project our students will undertake in the MYP, with a minimum of 25 hours of independent work, including investigating, planning, taking action and reflecting. It is great preparation for the Extended Essay on the Diploma. This year, the Personal Projects are required to choose a goal that connects to the IB Global Contexts and carry out a process to fulfil that goal. Examples that students have chosen in the past include:
Creating a simple, accessible and interesting math book for primary children in orphanages.
Helping to create awareness of Fairtrade products.
Creating a recipe for bread that appeals to all cultures and religions.
Each of our Grade 10 students will be allocated a supervisor who will act as a mentor throughout the process, and students and supervisors will meet seven times throughout the project.
