Children

Guernsey’s Language Academy

Research has shown that there are many benefits to being able to speak more than one language. Learning multiple languages challenges the brain and improves cognitive and social-emotional development, learning, and the chances for long-term success.

Language Lessons

Children can learn one or more languages almost effortlessly and the younger they start the easier. We offer classes in various languages for different ages and levels, for the younger ones we use a more intuitive approach to start with then move to a more structured way of teaching introducing books and other material.

We support secondary school children in their academic journey towards GCSE’s and AS & A-Levels exams helping them with mastering the language but also exam techniques.

After School Clubs

Our after-school tuition club consists of a 45 to 60 minutes language lesson followed by fun activities. Clubs are available Monday to Friday from 3.30pm to 5.15pm. A Small snack is provided and a water fountain always available. We offer pick up from both Notre Dame and Vauvert school at a pickup rate of an extra £3 per child per afternoon.

Holiday Clubs

When it comes to school holidays we know how hard it can be to find that all important childcare and interesting things to do. That is why we offer school holiday clubs for ages 5-11 in half terms, Summer, Easter and Christmas holidays. We do a wide range of activities with the children as well as combining learning another language!

Primary Schools

We have been working for years with many primary schools around the island delivering language courses to children from reception to year 6. Our language classes are fun and interactive and aim to engage children of all ages while broadening their horizons and giving them confidence in a language different from their own.

Nurseries

Teaching children languages from an early age has lots of benefits – including boosting their development, enhancing their speech and increasing their confidence.

Our Language Lessons

Being on a small island has its own challenges as well including finding experienced and qualified teachers. We are lucky enough to be able to offer the major European languages along with a few more exotic ones!

English (EFL)

Have you come to live and/or work in Guernsey? Do you need to develop your English language?
Here at Accent, we’re dedicated to working with people from all over the world who have come to Guernsey learn English or further develop their existing skills.

French

Parlez-vous français?
Being fortunate to live so close to France, French is a language that we all learn at school and one that proves incredibly helpful for French holidays and also in business.

Spanish

¿Hablas español?
Spanish is a very widely spoken language. So widely spoken in fact, that it is the second most spoken language!

Italian

Parli italiano?
Italian, like French, is a romance language and these share a similar grammatical structure and there are often similarities in vocabulary. Learning Italian will help with the grammar of French, and some words are similar to those in Portuguese and Spanish.

German

Kannst du Deutsch sprechen?
Whilst German is considered a difficult language to learn by English speakers, there are actually quite a lot of similarities between the two languages!

Portuguese

Falas português?
Portuguese is yet another romance language and is the third most spoken language in Europe and the mother tongue for over 200 million people. Obviously the official language of Portugal, Portuguese is also the official language in Brazil and Angola.

Russian

Можете ли вы говорить по-русски?
Mozhete li vy govorit’ po-russki?
Russian has plenty of loan words from Italian, French & German so if you speak any of those languages, you already have an advantage so don’t be put off by the way the written language looks!

Japanese

あなたは日本語を話せますか?
Anata wa nihongo o hanasemasu ka?
Japanese has three distinct writing systems: one of the most complex in the world! And Japanese text is a mixture of all three. A fascinating country, why not give the language a go?

We would love to offer several other languages and as soon as we have teachers for these languages, we will offer lessons. If there is any language that you would like to learn, please contact us and see if we’ve currently got a teacher for it.
