Accent International

School Overview

Founded in 1988, we provide specialist English for executives, professionals and corporate clients. Our UK Centre is an 18th century manor house, the former home of Lord Clinton, in 200 hectares of gardens and lakes only five minutes from the sea and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Jurassic Coast. We are a "UK Centre of Excellence" and have references all over the world from our blue-chip client list of global corporates.

We provide training in the UK, in your country, face-to-face online or through distance learning. Welcome to Accent - the one-stop-shop for serious language learners.

The Accent Philosophy

Personal - because although Accent works internationally, our centre is small and the number of participants is carefully limited. In this way, we can provide personal attention and design courses to suit individual needs.

Professional - because Accent uses qualified and experienced trainers who usually have qualifications and experience in specialist areas such as business, finance, science or IT - in addition to language teaching qualifications.

Quality - because Accent is committed to quality - in training, in materials, in our facilities, in accommodation and in client-company relations. We believe that all parts of a training programme are equally important - from initial contact to final report.

Training - because Accent is used to working with businessmen, companies and professionals.

All of our services are based upon training concepts, not teaching. The atmosphere on an Accent course is totally different to that of a school - the approach, relationships and environment are suitable for serious, mature adults with a professional need for English.

About Exeter

Accent's courses in the UK take place at Bicton College in the beautiful county of Devon in South West England.

Bicton College was built in the early 18th century and, before its present use, it was the home of Lord Clinton. It stands in its own park of 210 hectares and is reached by a long tree-lined avenue from the main road. The building is surrounded by formal gardens, trees, fields and flower beds and at the front is a large lake which looks onto Bicton Park - designed by the architect of the gardens at Versailles, Andre Le Notre.
