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

Bicton College

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.

Accent's Training Centre

Accent's permanent executive training centre occupies the whole of the second floor of the building. Entering the front door, course participants go through the entrance hall, past the statue of Lord Clinton and then up the original staircase with its chandelier and stained glass windows to the quiet efficiency of the executive suite.

The executive suite has been created out of the 18th century building to give the modern atmosphere of a training centre within the beauty of a historic manor house. Careful use of partitioning, glass and the highest levels of sound-proofing have produced light, bright, well-equipped teaching rooms and offices suitable for varying combinations of individual students, small groups and company seminars.

There are nine training rooms, in addition to the reception and coffee room, for participants to use. There is an excellent selection of specialist language learning material, video cameras, overhead projectors, computers, e-mail, internet, telephone training technology, audio equipment - in fact everything you would expect from a top training establishment.

Most of the training rooms look out over the lake and gardens to the sea which is five minutes from the college.


A Learning Environment

Learning specialist language intensively is very hard work. If the course becomes too intensive, there are walks through the gardens, around the lake and among the trees to clear the head and help participants to work effectively and with the greatest possible efficiency.

We believe that we have created the ideal environment for language learning. Our course participants work extremely hard within a relaxed atmosphere located in a place of great beauty.
