English schools in the USA and Canada
The Acadia Center for English Immersion, on the beautiful coast of Maine, USA, is dedicated to providing the highest quality intensive English courses for adults, featuring individual attention, lively classes, experienced teachers, total English immersion from morning to night, family-style meals and accommodations, exciting excursions and activities, and diversity of age and nationality: everything you need to raise your English to a higher level. We are open all year! Join us for an intensive course at a time that works best for you, or for our summer mini-group course.
Individual Attention, Expert Teachers:
Our dedicated teachers make sure that you have the opportunity to learn and practice the English skills most essential to you, whether you need English for your job or for travel or both. On the first day of your course, in consultation with your teacher, a detailed plan is made outlining your learning goals and the best way to achieve them. Our intensive courses feature one-to-one and mini-group lessons. Summer mini-group courses feature small classes supplemented by frequent private lessons.
Classes with a Difference
Our experienced, friendly teachers create a lively, challenging learning environment that allows each student to make maximum progress.
Full Immersion from Morning to Night: From morning to night, you are constantly practicing your English, both in class and out of class, at meals and on excursions. Because of the smallness and friendliness of our program, you will have the chance to meet many people in our community who are eager to get to know you and help you with your English.
Mountains and Ocean: The Perfect Place to Study and Relax
Islands and ocean, rocky beaches and peaceful rivers, forests and hills, make our area one of the most popular vacation places on the east coast of the USA. Living in a small New England village allows you to take a break from the hurried pace of modern life and participate fully in the daily life of an American community to an extent that would be impossible in a large city.
Family-style Meals and Accommodations
No cafeteria food! No dormitories! Accommodation for our intensive course students is a homestay with a local family. During the summer mini-group course, students live together in comfortable village homes near the school. Meals are delicious and family-style, featuring local produce and seafood, including lobster fresh off the boat.
Diversity of Age and Nationality
A wide range of ages from 18 to 80; half of our students are over 35. Our students come from many different countries, and rarely are there more than 2 or 3 at a time from the same country.
Raise Your English to a Higher Level
At the Acadia Center you will gain new self-confidence in speaking and understanding English, while enjoying the beauty, serenity, and generous hospitality of a small Maine town.
