We hope this blog will provide interesting insight into our super little school, offer ideas about how to learn and train in English language, how to enjoy doing so, and how to benefit from the wider opportunities in Exeter as a city and the South West region as a whole.
We believe Exeter academy is the ideal school in the ideal city in an idyllic part of the UK.
We will continue to provide information, ideas and help for you our readers in maximising your language study opportunities.
Winter sports and weddings!
A new and exciting year is beginning. There are many global events taking place, eg. the Winter Olympics in South Korea, the football World Cup in Russia.
Continuing the sporting theme, you might not be a fan of rugby, but may be interested to know that Exeter has the home stadium of the English national champions – The Exeter Chiefs in rugby league.
Visiting the Chief’s stadium at Sandy Park is a memorable day out, which several of our students have experienced. You will see international rugby stars from all over the world and the wonderful action of the fast-paced game.
Royal Wedding bells!
Of course, there will be a royal wedding in May, with Prince Harry marrying Meghan Markle.
This will be an opportunity to see us celebrating in truly British style, with street parties, the wide and varied costumes, culture and what we call ‘Pomp’ – a word which means all the special clothing, traditions and activities that happen during these big events, especially connected to our Royal family. We are very good at that which anyone of you who has seen the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace will testify.
What about Exeter Academy?
New intensive IELTS programme.
From January this year we have begun a new intensive IELTS programme. This combines our extremely successful and unique Multi-level system with a highly focused and thorough IELTS training, designed to prepare students for Academic study or achieve good results for work or whatever their needs are.
By separating the different skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening into different lessons, we can ensure that you are at exactly the most effective level in all of these to maximise your progress. Then we add 6 hours of focussed exam techniques training to create a highly specialised and dedicated course programme.
Our students have a fantastic record of achievement in exams as a result.
