Our Educational Policy
At the Devon School of English, we believe that language is best
acquired when it is used meaningfully in situations that learners
can relate to and enjoy. Our courses aim to respond to the
learners' interests, needs and professional or academic contexts
and are based on the belief that fluency comes from confidence and
pleasure in the language and language learning.
Emphasis is on the practical use of modern English - including its
vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. Lessons help learners
improve and adapt their learning habits along with the skills of
speaking, listening, reading and writing.
We believe that a student's English learning extends beyond the
classroom into their time outside of the school which is why we
take great care to ensure that the social programme and their stay
with local families form an important part of our curriculum and
perform a significant role in their language learning.
Our Language Policy
The English We Teach: In most cases, Devon School lessons refer to
British English: British English phonology, British English
grammar & vocabulary and British English spelling. However, we
also understand that learners sometimes require an appreciation of
alternative terms from North American English or from an
international English in which non-native speakers use English as
a common language.
We feel the model of British English used in the school is
descriptive, natural and dynamic. Where necessary, your teachers
will make you aware of the register and effect of non-neutral
words and phrases, for example whether they are formal or casual
and when and where they can usually be used.
