A great option for beginners, our general courses in English are there to improve your knowledge of conversational English , primarily through the development of vocabulary and grammar - the best way to bolster your basic spoken and written skills. General classes can help those learning from scratch as well as those with existing English knowledge - they aim to improve your current proficiency, as well as building towards the complexities required for a more advanced course.
Listen & Learn's general English courses for groups are a great option for groups of 2-12 colleagues or friends who are at the same level in studying English. Your group should have similar learning goals and be available to study at the same time and location every week. The courses are tailored to suit the group's level, no matter how elementary or advanced. General courses aim to give students knowledge of common English that would be used in real scenarios. Your teacher will cover a lot of grammar and vocabulary, as well as give you ample opportunities to practise your reading, listening, and speaking skills. General group English courses are great for groups who would like to begin learning English, or improve on existing skills and knowledge. These courses are also highly recommended as a first step for companies who would like their employees to move on to a business language course once they have a working knowledge of English.
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.
Specific purpose courses in English are aimed at those who already have semi-proficient skills in English but wish to improve in particular areas of expertise. Your teacher can guide you through many features of English to help you gain fluency, linguistic or not. These may include:
• Accent softening / pronunciation
Developing existing aptitude for writing, reading, listening, speaking, etc.
• Language for international travel Business communication skills (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Business writing skills (e.g. proposals, reports, formal correspondence)
• Vocabulary for particular industry (e.g. medical, legal, HR, engineering, accounting)

If your group of 2-12 English learners require the same set of particular skills as well as a standard language course, our specific purpose group English courses can really help make a difference. So long as the whole group is at about the same stage of learning English, we can help improve their overall understanding by arranging classes focusing on improving the following:
• Elocution and softening of native accent
• Improving specific skills (writing, comprehension, listening, etc.)
• Language for international travel
• Business communication skills (e.g. training, negotiation, telephony, presentation)
• Business writing skills (e.g. reports, business correspondence, proposals)
