General and Business English content

General and Business English

These courses begin with assessing your level of English on arriving at the school and defining your strengths and weaknesses. You are then placed in a class at your level. The course covers all aspects of the language including grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and reading, writing & listening skills. There is a strong focus on fluency and effective communication, and a major part of this course is activating the passive knowledge that many students already have.

Standard Courses

Choose between 15 or 20 lessons* per week on our standard courses. This programme of study will help you improve all the key areas you need for greater fluency and is ideal for those who wish to combine study with work or sightseeing. The 15 lesson option is based around a coursebook syllabus and the timetable leaves you plenty of time for other interests outside the classroom. The 20 lesson option extends this to develop your speaking skills through additional conversation practice.

Intensive Courses

This fast track option offers you either 25 or 30 lessons* per week. It combines the standard course plus an additional 5, 10 or 15 lessons per week. This is the ideal course for those wanting to make the maximum progress in the time available.

Business English

As companies around the world become more international and communication is made faster and easier, English has become the global language of choice for all aspects of business. Many corporations demand fluency in English for all their employees.

You can choose to study business English in group classes or we can tailor-make a programme to suit your specialisation, combining group course and 1-1. You can even choose to take an Internship programme in your career area.

Combination English, group course and 1-1 :

TOEIC or TOEFL preparation courses or other objectives

As well as improving your Business English skills, you may wish to study English for a specific topic that relates to your work, study or special interest. This is the perfect tool to prepare a TOEIC exam at the dates of your choice.

A combination course combines General or Business English classes 9-12 am from Monday to Friday, with 5, 10 or 15 one-to-one lessons per week. Whether you want to learn specific English vocabulary relating to business, engineering or banking or you want to study English for literature, art or football, a combination course is the right choice for you. 

If you are planning to improve your result at the TOEIC exam, you'll need to take any previous results. This will help your English teacher assessing the areas of improvement. In fact, you will need to work in several fields: listening and reading skills, time management during the exam and focus where your needs are.

Prices for the combination English course:

No accommodation included 1 week
15 hours group course + 5 hours/week one-to-one £ 397
15 hours group course + 10 hours/week one-to-one £ 627
