We offer tailored business and general English courses to help develop your speaking and listening skills, improve your fluency in English and to enable you to interact more effectively with colleagues and clients. By using real-life work situations, we will help you improve your ability to write effectively, handle telephone calls, participate in meetings or make fluent presentations. You will also improve your grammar and learn idiomatic phrases and expressions.
Our Business English tailored courses generally focus on: writing emails, letters and reports, describing your job and company, taking part in meetings, presenting and describing your products or services, summarising trends, company performance and results, negotiating, selling and marketing as well as skills for socialising with confidence. Our General English courses are highly practical for adults who want to develop overall speaking, reading, writing and listening skills.
Accent Modification: If you need to achieve greater fluency in your face-to-face business situations, we will help you to modify your speech to communicate more clearly and achieve a more English sound. You may have a strong grasp of English but find that your ability to fully express yourself is limited. Our programme will boost your confidence for communicating ideas effectively, soften your accent, produce continuous speech without long pauses and use techniques for managing native-English speakers who may interrupt.
English for Meetings, Presentations and Negotiations: In addition to our Business English courses, we also provide focused short courses to practise the essential language skills needed for meetings, presentations or negotiations. Each of these courses are tailored to your own context and will help you improve your communication skills in realistic situations. You’ll write English in a variety of contexts, listen and understand to appropriate recordings, podcasts or videos, give clear, detailed oral descriptions and presentations on complex subjects and express yourself orally in a clear and effective style.
