Everybody can benefit from our general English courses - they endeavour to give the learner fluency in general English conversation, whether through learning the basics or improving existing skills. General courses concentrate mainly on sharpening up grammar and vocabulary, and aim to expand the ability to speak, read and listen English with full comprehension. These courses will be most suitable for those who want to improve their English to a practicable level, or as a basis for a business English 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.
These business English courses are aimed at groups of 2 to 12 people who already have a fair working English knowledge, who wish to convert this knowledge to practicable business use. So long as all members of the group are at the same level of English at the start of the course, and are able to meet for each class at a pre-arranged time and place, then the classes will be of great benefit to all involved. Business courses will generally focus on the field or industry in question, incorporating related vocabulary and improving appropriate skills, such as writing reports, formal business correspondence or giving a presentation.
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:

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.)
