At ACCORD ISS learning English is fun!

Fluency in English is becoming an increasingly essential asset in today’s world. Much emphasis is placed upon communication in the Summer English courses at ACCORD ISS Bethany, thus building confidence in the language.

The standard programme includes 15 hours of English lessons a week with a maximum of 14 students per class. Students will take a written and oral English test upon arrival so teachers can place them in the correct class for their level. We try to mix classes so there are students of a similar age and different nationalities.

Summer English courses at ACCORD ISS Bethany are taught by qualified and experienced teachers who make them fun and encourage students to speak as much English as possible with focus on everyday English.

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 a certificate of attendance and a report from their teacher.

When your child goes home, we hope they will feel enriched by their experience with us and will look forward to returning to meet friends made at ACCORD ISS the following year, as so many do.
