The Morning

Accent prides itself on its small class sizes (max 15 students) as students show greater improvements in their English when they enjoy more personal attention with lessons tailored to their interests and personal development needs. Students learn more effectively and faster when they are enjoying lessons so we keep everything fun-packed and productive. Teachers create a balance between grammar and key vocabulary learning with more practical English for everyday use to develop four main skills: speaking, reading, writing and listening. As well as keeping our teaching imaginative and enjoyable, we also make sure it is effective. Students are monitored and encouraged to progress throughout their stay. All students receive an Accent Certificate and a progress report at the end of their time with us.

We made so many new friends and improved our English!.

The Afternoon

 

We work with a number of local businesses and are in partnership with Outdoor Guernsey to offer a fantastic range of activities. Students will get to try new things, see and experience the uniqueness of Guernsey and make lasting friendships. Our day trips also allow students to use their English in real situations, so we prepare them beforehand so that they can make the most out of their day.

I had the most amazing Summer, with Accent!

The Evening

 

We believe it is important that the students have time to socialise among themselves and forge long lasting friendship with students of other countries. Accent provides opportunities twice a week for the students to all to meet up and have fun in the evening in secure and controlled environments. Different events are organised such as discos, beach barbeques, cinema nights and bowling.
