Organized trips for school groups in the Channel Island with optional English lessons

  • Guernsey is a beautiful little island with spectacular scenery, beautiful sandy beaches, dramatic coastal views, and plenty to do outdoors – but don’t forget, we also have a rich and unique history to explore!

    Its relaxed pace of life and its safety make the island the perfect place to bring young students on a school trip.

    Whether it’s Victor Hugo’s life on the island, the German Occupation in WWII, a marine and bio-diversity project which interests you, or you want your students to do some extra English classes; we can organize the ideal stay for your students and your school. Additional outdoor or indoor activities are available on-demand (cricket, swimming, kayaking, etc.)

    Our host families offer a warm, safe and welcoming environment for your students to experience English family life!

    Who should Learn English 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 private and semi-private courses are perfect for those looking to rapidly improve their English. Our qualified EFL teachers are friendly and professional and know how to perfectly tailor lessons based on the needs of a student. Whether you would like to focus on exam skills, pronunciation, or strengthening communicative, our private lessons will be adapted to your requirements.

    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 Cherbourg and St Malo in under 2 hours via ferry. Alternatively, our airport has airlines with routes to and from London Gatwick, Stansted, 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.

    Student reviews

      Warm welcome

      It was the first time our daughter came to Guernsey to approve her English. She was very happy to spend time in her family who reserved her a warm welcome. I want to thank you for the quality of this first linguistic journey for our daughter.

      Perfectly adapted lessons

      I’ve been studying English in the Academy during 2020. I chose the format “private tuition”, the lessons were adapted to what I wanted to master (listening and speaking skills) so you don´t lose your time with things you are not interested on and the teacher couldn’t have been better, always willing to help and choosing actual and interesting topics. I recommend this school without any doubt; surely they have something perfectly adapted to what you need.
