The flexibility of these courses is particularly suited to clients who wish to maximise their progress in General English in a short time, whilst also devoting time to specific language areas. The one-to-one element of a General English combination course may be used for exam preparation, a specific language function, to reinforce certain grammar points or simply to boost fluency and conversation skills. The one-to-one element of a Business English combination course might include technical or vocation-specific language, mechanical or electrical engineering terminology or the language of banking and finance for example, or it might afford the student the perfect opportunity to prepare, refine and rehearse a specific presentation.

We will send you a needs analysis document in advance of your course, for you to tell us your specific objectives and to help us plan your course and select the teacher with the most appropriate expertise and experience. Your teacher will work closely with you to ensure that you derive the maximum benefit from these sessions.

A combination course offers a balance of study which allows students to learn and practise their English communication skills in a class environment and yet at the same time, to focus on individual needs and objectives in a more personalised and intensive setting.

We always try to ensure that our Business English provision is always client-centred. We agree and follow a programme that matches the needs of the members of the group as closely as possible.

We combine functional Business English, the language used in the situations in which our students most commonly find themselves, with specialist language and vocabulary where appropriate. We always try to relate what happens in the classroom to real life.

Our teachers are chosen for their ability to base their input on both teaching skill and practical experience of business. We believe that the ability to truly understand a student’s business is crucial to meaningful language provision.

  • The Language of Meetings
