  • Typical Itinerary

    The morning

    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 with focus on speaking. 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.

    Lessons takes place at the prestigious Elizabeth College in town.

    The afternoon

    We work with a number of local businesses to offer a fantastic range of activities mainly outdoor based.  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 coasteering to kayaking, climbing 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.

    The evening

    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.

    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.
