English as a Foreign Language trips for adults in the Channel Islands

On behalf of all the team at Channel Islands English Academy, I/ we would personally like to welcome you to our school. We started in 1990 with just a handful of students, and today we now welcome over 250 EFL students every year from every corner of the world. Our adult group courses are perfect for those looking to improve their English and meet new people in a beautiful setting. Our qualified EFL teachers are friendly and professional and know how to develop every student’s language learning so that they can reach their potential. Our adult groups have a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 8 students so that the students can progress faster and receive more attention and better feedback. Outside of lesson time, there are a wide variety of activities to choose from, which will showcase Guernsey’s cultural and history heritage as well as its natural charm.

Guernsey’s location near the French coast makes it a popular choice for French, Spanish, German, Portuguese, and Italian learners, who can cross from St Malo in under 2 hours via ferry. Alternatively, our airport has airlines with routes to and from London Gatwick, Stansted, Heathrow, Jersey, Southampton and more. Guernsey and its cluster of islands boast beautiful beaches and coastal cliffs as well as vast natural habitats, and there is plenty to see and do here in terms of sports and water-based activities, walking routes and nature trails, gastronomical experiences, or cultural enrichment.

Every student is a valued member of our Academy. You’ll always be welcomed back.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Anna Lisa & the CIEA team.
