New Book Clubs at Accent Language School 

Book clubs are a great way to discover new authors, adapt to different writing styles and genres with the added benefit of having a place to discuss characters and plots with friends equally as passionate about books.

Accent Language School run book clubs for both teenagers and adults in many different languages to suit the demand. Our book clubs are small groups of students enouraged to choose a book from a recommended reading list and discuss the contents of the book with the guidance of one of our teachers.

The Book Clubs are ideal for students studying GCSE or A Level qualification and those that have a good understanding of a language and just want to improve in this fun environment.
