If you want to study English in a mature environment without being overrun by
hundreds of youngsters during the summer, you should study at adult only Exeter
Academy in South East England. As the average student age here is 29 everyone
has the same eagerness to learn as you!
Exeter Academy uses a unique multi level teaching system. For example, if you are better at speaking English than writing it, you will get placed in a higher class for speaking to ensure you get the maximum benefit from being here. The courses you can take include General English, Cambridge FCE and IELTS examination preparation (Exeter Academy boasts a recent 100% pass rate for FCE and recent IELTS students scored 6.0), a Combination Course of General English and one to one lessons and an intensive Executive Course of one to one lessons that are tailored to meet the English needs of busy professionals.
Another great thing about Exeter Academy is that the excursions and social events held are free (bar some entry fees). You'll get to know other students and your teachers really well by reserving yourself a place on the local Devon and Exeter trips. The social events on offer in the evenings include pub visits, jazz evenings and traditional English Skittles.
Exeter Academy is an impressive building set in its own gardens where picnic tables are provided so you can relax here with fellow students during your breaks and lunchtime. There is a dining area for you to eat lunch together, tea and coffee facilities and a games area with table football. The self access centre and video rooms will be useful aides during self study. The flat screen computers provide you with free internet access so you can keep in contact with family and friends via email.
Exeter Academy is just North of Exeter city centre in the South East of England.
This city was founded over 2000 years ago and you can still see the original
walls that encircle the city centre. You can also visit the magnificent Exeter
Cathedral as well as the remains of Exeter Castle that sit in NorthernHay Park.
You can take a tour of the city that includes a visit to 21 The Mint (the oldest dwelling in Devon), or head to the popular and historic Quayside. Here you can take a boat trip on the River Exe or relax in one of the cafes, bars and restaurants in the Quayside itself.
Both Exeter St David's and Exeter Central Railway Stations are easily accessible from this language school.
Exeter Academy is accredited by the British Council and a member of English UK.
