The English Language

English is the official Language in 53 countries and is spoken by almost 2 billion people. It also happens to be the official language in the European Union, the United Nations and the Commonwealth of Nations, making it a very attractive language since it has become the lingua franca in most parts of the world. Its dominance as a language is central to communication, science, business, entertainment, diplomacy, arts and the media.

 

The Challenge

Here at ACCESS we take on the challenge of teaching English with complete success - our emphasis on efficiently teaching English is enhanced by an all Native Language Academic Teaching Staff. Our curriculum is one of methodology as well as communicative tasks, which stimulates, provokes and perpetuates the young learner's need to succeed and feel confident in an English speaking environment. Great care and sensitivity to the individual needs of the learner is warranted by the teacher with whom contact is made and supported by a day-to-day study program. We believe the more one is confronted with English, the better aware one becomes with its particulars.

Facilities

Furthermore, lessons are held in small, tutor sized classrooms, in a totally refreshing and enlightening environment far away from the conservative classroom. We offer a fully stocked, lending library with all the latest books and magazines on offer to all students to help enrich and enhance their reading skills. Each classroom is air conditioned and has a clean air vent duct system. Classrooms are Whiteboard Interactive equipped with on-line access and supported by audio-visual equipment.

Examinations

At ACCESS, we focus on the English Certificates awarded by the University of Cambridge as well as the University of Michigan. The success rate for our candidates' first attempt at these certificates has never fallen under 95%, with those retaking their exams at 100%. Moreover, our success is further reflected in the high percentage of ‘A's and ‘B's acquired by our successful students. Our persistence in acquiring a certificate for our students that has prestige in the work force is our main motivation.
