At Access English, we have many years’ experience of teaching English to foreigners. Indeed, at our English language academy in Gandia, Spain we are always busy with a wide variety of students. These range from young children and university students to adult professionals – who need expert tuition to master their fluency in English.
Over the years, we have built up a wealth of experience in how best to teach English. We have a selection of experienced teachers who specialise in different areas of the English language and this allows us to provide expert English language tuition, whether in its written form, its grammar or conversation.
We believe that the secret to great English language tuition lies in making classes fun. This is essential and a skill often lacking in many teachers. However, at Access English, we make every effort to ensure that learning English is enjoyable and our teachers employ a host of different resources to achieve this aim. We have a huge selection of educational materials, including a library of relevant English language books and educational games – all aimed at making learning English effective.
Naturally, the aim of most of our students is the passing of English language examinations, such as the Cambridge examinations (KET, PET, FCE, CAE and Proficiency) and other examinations like IELTS and TOEFL. We have detailed knowledge of these examinations, together with the English language examinations particular to Spanish ESO and Bachillerato.
Of course, one of the major problems for many people learning English is ‘listening and speaking’. This is the hardest part of leaning English for most foreigners, as it requires significant practise with native English speakers.
Fortunately, at Access English, we have a couple of teachers (one of whom is a journalist) who specialise in conversational classes. These are designed to be interesting and challenging, within small groups of between four and six people. Similar to university tutorials these conversational classes are intellectually demanding and push speaking and listening English to the limits of a student’s capabilities. These classes are very popular and have helped our students enormously in their examinations, job interviews and work experience in English speaking countries.
Meanwhile, we also ‘groom’ our students for North European job interviews. These tend to be very different to those undertaken in Spain and require preparation, not just for the level of English required but also to be able to answer the type of ‘open’ questions asked.
Finally, we advise and provide assistance to students wishing to attend an English language residential college in the UK. There are many of these colleges in the UK but not all provide quality English language residential courses and not all are cost effective. Fortunately, we have found two colleges that are excellent and provide a first class service.
As you can see, we are able to service the demands of our wide range of students, who find us through a combination of recommendation and energetically targeted marketing, including via our very successful main web site (www.aprendeinglesgandia.es).
