EFL Lessons Students learn more effectively and faster when they are enjoying lessons, so we keep everything fun-packed and productive. Teachers create a balance between grammar and key vocabulary learning with more practical English for everyday use to develop four main skills: speaking, reading, writing, and listening. As well as keeping our teaching imaginative and enjoyable, we also make sure it is effective. Students are monitored and encouraged to progress throughout their stay. All students receive a certificate and a progress report at the end of their time with us.
Activities We work with a number of local businesses to offer a fantastic range of activities mainly outdoor based. Our activities rotate every 2 weeks so no one gets bored! Students will get to try new things, see and experience the uniqueness of Guernsey and make lasting friendships. Our day trips also allow students to use their English in real situations, so we prepare them beforehand so that they can make the most out of their day. From cricket to kayaking, multi-sport to surfing, we offer something fun for everyone. Our beautiful island of Herm nearby offers fantastic beaches and spectacular views of Guernsey and Sark. Our leaders accompanying our students are making sure everyone is engaged and participates in the activities while being responsible for their well-being and safety.
Socialising We believe it is important that the students have time to socialise among themselves and forge long lasting friendship with students of other countries. CIEA provides opportunities every week for the students to all to meet up and have fun in the evening in secure and controlled environments. Different events are organised such as beach barbecues, fish & chips in the park, cinema nights and indoor swimming, depending on the weather. Our evenings finish relatively early with our lovely host families collecting their students wherever they might be on the island. Our families are committed to making the children feel at home and part of the family and work closely with us to ensure our students are comfortable and relaxed at home.
