Our native-speaking, qualified English teachers will tailor your individual or group language course to suit your personal learning aims and English level. They are available to conduct classes in your home or office in Nottingham, on a day and at a time that suits you. Course books are included, and timetables can often be as flexible as you need. Your personalised course will be built around one of the following options:
Our general English language courses are suitable for learners of any level. They aim to enable communication in everyday situations and are an ideal way to improve your knowledge of English, whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned speaker. A general course focuses predominantly on grammar and vocabulary, supported by development of speaking, reading, and listening skills. General courses are ideal if you want to attain or improve on an all-round level of English, or build a strong foundation before moving on to business English training.
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.
Our business courses cater to learners with a decent general knowledge of English but would like to expand their skills for use in the business world. Courses are, as always, completely tailormade for the relevant industry and skill sets (e.g. business correspondence, writing reports etc.). One-to-one business courses are perfect for professionals hoping to develop their current English skills, especially those working for multinational corporations, preparing to work from abroad, or looking for overseas employment.
Intended for learners who already have a basic grasp of English and wish to extend it to apply to their working lives, group business English courses are a great way to enable employees within a multinational corporation to be productive in both their native tongue and their newly-acquired English. Group courses cater for up to 12 people (minimum of 2 students), and should be scheduled to take place at the same time and location each week. The tutor will develop the group's vocabulary to suit the related industry, as well as improve competence for day to day tasks performed in English.
Specific purposes English courses are a great boon to people who have already studied English and wish to develop certain facets of their English skills. This can include an array of helpful guidance, including the following:
• 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
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)
• Vocabulary for relevant industry (e.g. medical, legal, HR, engineering, accounting)
• Cultural and historical sensitivity
"The classes were really dynamic; I really feel that I've improved my English. The teacher was very reliable"
Nottingham factsA city in the East Midlands, Nottingham is one of the UK's core cities and has a population of around 275,000. Home to the legend of Robin Hood, Nottingham gained much of its prosperity in ages past from the textile industry - most famously for its production of lace. Many large companies have their headquarters in Nottingham, owing to its central location in the UK and its transport. Also famed for its shopping districts, sizeable event and sporting venues, as well as its two universities, Nottingham is increasingly becoming a major centre for tourism, particularly from the US and the Far East.
