Our general courses are a good place to start your English studies, or to improve upon your current skills. They give focused attention to expanding your day-to-day grammar and vocabulary, enabling you to improve your spoken and written English with relative speed and ease. General courses best suit those wishing to improve their English to conversational level, as well as students who hope to continue their English studies to a more advanced level.
Our group courses in general English are perfect if you have a group of 2-12 students who have achieved approximately the same level of English, whether that be beginner or advanced. Your teacher will focus on English grammar and vocabulary that will be useful in everyday communication, and will provide plenty of practice with speaking, reading, and listening. Your group should have similar learning goals, and be available at the same time and location every week. A general group course is suitable for groups of colleagues or friends, and is also a good option for businesses who want to give their employees a basic grounding in English before they begin a business English course.
Listen & Learn's one-on-one English courses for business are integral in taking your existing English skills and making them indispensible for day-to-day business tasks. Lessons are adapted to suit your particular industry and field, and your teacher can help you master specific skills, such as presentation skills and formal business correspondence. This is the best option for professionals who work for international corporations, as well as businessmen working from abroad or seeking overseas work.
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.
