Fluency in English is becoming an increasingly essential asset in today's world. At ACCORD ISS much emphasis is placed upon fluency and communication, thus building confidence in the language.
We use a variety of materials updated every year to make sure students have fun whilst learning.
During their final lessons all students receive advice from their teachers on how they can continue to improve their English when they return home. They also receive resources to enable them to do this.
Every student's knowledge of English is assessed on arrival in the form of a written and oral test, to ensure placement at the appropriate level.
The programme is a mix of English classes, sports and activities and recreational and cultural visits.
We offer 6 levels of English from beginner to proficiency. Students have 15 hours of English lessons per week in small classes of no more than 12 students per class.
Lessons are fun and encourage students to speak as much English as possible with the focus on everyday English.
All our teachers are qualified and experienced in teaching English as a foreign language for young learners.
The learning process continues after lessons have finished, as the students integrate with each other. For each course, the number of students who speak the same language is restricted. Therefore, English is the only common language and everyone is encouraged to speak it at all times.
