Fluency in English is becoming an increasingly essential asset in today’s world. In our summer English language courses much emphasis is placed upon communication, thus building confidence in the language.

The standard programme includes 15 hours of English lessons a week with a maximum of 15 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.

Summer English Language Courses: Lessons 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 we return your child to you at the end of their stay, 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.

Intensive English Programme

If you would like your child to attend a more intensive programme, consolidate his or her new skills, we offer five extra hours of English tuition during which classes focus on Grammar & Vocabulary, Communication & Pronunciation, Reading & Writing.

This is taught in small groups of 6 students maximum.


It is possible for students to have individual English lessons on top of their timetabled lessons.

Please contact us if you are interested in extra lessons for your son or daughter.
