All of our English teachers are native speakers and appropriately qualified to teach the language at almost any level, keeping in mind your own learning needs and current level. Classes can be held in your Aberdeen home or workplace, and can easily be arranged to fit your schedule. We'll provide your initial text books, all you need to do is decide which of the following available course packages best suits your needs:
General English courses can be to the advantage of anybody, whether you are a rank beginner or already have some experience of the tongue. By focusing on grammar and vocabulary skills, Listen & Learn's general courses are perfect to develop your fluency in speaking, listening and reading everyday English. They are perfect for those who want to start making their English work for them, and a great precursor to a business course.
Our English group courses are targeted for sets of 2-12 people, all of whom have the same requirements from learning English. Everybody should be at about the same level at the start of the course, and the entire group should be able to meet at the same time and place each week. Grammar and vocabulary form the backbone of the general course, helping the student gain fluency in conversational topics whilst increasing their overall working English knowledge. For groups who wish to engage in further English study, the general course is an excellent starting point.
With our one-to-one English business courses, you can develop your current English skills to incorporate them effortlessly into your job - perfect for those employed by multinational organisations, moving abroad to work, or in search of employment overseas. Lessons are designed around your sector of industry and field of work, and tutors can aid learners in improving individual skills required by your role, such as giving presentations, writing reports or composing formal written correspondence.
Business English courses for groups cater to anywhere between 2 and 12 people who all have the same starting level and learning aims in their English study. Business classes concentrate on improving existing English skills in order to broaden the learner's ability to use their new language in day to day business affairs, whether that includes covering vocabulary specific to an individual industry or improving pertinent skill sets in the target language (from writing emails to giving a successful presentation). Perfect for employees of multinational organisations! Students will have to meet at the same time and place each week.
Courses for specific purposes are designed to assist the individual learner in delving deeper into their current English capacity by focusing on many English details which separate the 'native' from the 'tourist', including (but not limited to):
• Vocabulary for relevant industry (e.g. HR, engineering, accounting, medical, legal)
•Elocution and accent softening
• Expanding individual skills (writing, speaking, listening, reading etc.)
• Language for travelling internationally
• Business communication skills (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Business writing skills (e.g. reports, business correspondence, proposals)
• Historical and cultural sensitivity
As long as all members of a group English course are at a similar level of expertise, specific purpose English courses can be customised to suit the needs of the group of 2-12 students with similar learning aims. These often include:
Vocabulary related to the industry (legal, HR, engineering, accounting, medical etc.)
• Accent softening and elocution
• Expanding upon existing aspects (writing, speaking, listening, reading etc.)
• Language for travelling
• Communication skills in business (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Writing skills in business (e.g. reports, business correspondence, proposals)
• Historical and cultural sensitivity
