Group English courses are available for groups of 2 to 12 people - we require only that your group are able to meet at the same time and place each week, and that you are all at approximately the same level in your English studies (no matter how elementary or advanced). As a general course, the focus will be on building conversational skills for common, real-life English situations. If you need you and your employees to have a working knowledge of English, this is the best place to start.
1-to-1 business English courses can really help you get ahead, whether you are relocating abroad, looking for work in a foreign country, or simply if you work for a multinational organisation. These courses are mainly aimed at learners who already possess a decent working English knowledge and who want to build on these in order to use their English skills in a business environment. The course is fully customised to take into account not only your learning needs, but also the appropriate industry's vocabulary and any particular skills the role demands, such as report writing or formal correspondence.
Group business English courses are intended for small groups (of 2 to 12 students) who already have a working knowledge of English, and want to extend their skills in the arena of business language. Your group should have approximately the same level of English, whether that be intermediate, upper intermediate, or advanced. You should all be available at the same time every week, and have complementary learning aims. Your trainer will develop your course around your group's language goals and particular field of business, and can incorporate any specific areas of focus, such as improving negotiation or presentation skills. Group business language courses are suitable for a wide range of organisations, including multinational companies, and those whose employees require a higher level of English to develop international business relationships.

Hull factsA large town in North Yorkshire, Harrogate forms a conurbation with Knaresborough, the population of the combined urban area being around 85,000. Historically Harrogate was primarily a hub for agriculture and the woollen industry. Nowadays the town is used as a commercial, conference and exhibition centre, owing mainly to the vast array of hotels built during the period before the First World War when Harrogate was a popular getaway for the English Ã©lite. Harrogate also acts as a dormitory town for commuters working in Leeds and Bradford, and is also the site of regionally renowned traditional eateries, Betty's Tea Rooms.
