She has to set world records (322,93 km in 48 hours and 107,49 kilometers in 12 hours), climbed mountains, sailed from Fiji to New Zealand, the list goes on. She’s also the first woman to have run across Iran.

French Tour to Lyon

We, the French 5 and IB French B higher level students at IEGS, went on a trip to Lyon situated in the South West of France. The purpose of the trip was to practice our French skills and to experience French culture. In just four days we did a lot of fun things! We stayed at a beautiful apartment, just like the ones in French movies. The sunrise was visible over the rooftops through the kitchen window, and the sunset from the bedroom window.

IEGS in South Africa 2015

After x amount of forgotten passports, struggles with lost cameras and uncompleted documents for entering the country, we finally landed in Johannesburg after many hours on the plane trying to kill time by watching Disney, The Great British Bakeoff, or any possible sci-fi movie we could get a hold of during the flight.

Chinese Language Competition

This past weekend two of our students, Erika Carlsson and Mikael Carlsson, participated in the Chinese Language Competition here in Stockholm.

They did an amazing job, being both confident and aiming for the best results, their ambitions came from their serious, time-consuming preparation that they put in during the 2 months before the competition! Which definitely paid off as IEGS was awarded the second prize over all! Mikael won the first prize and Erika the second prize as individuals, which is a great accomplishment for them and IEGS. There were three parts that they were graded on which consisted of speech, questions and a cultural show.
