Key Facts

If you need to improve your English to help you to be more effective at work, this is the course for you. You will find the process of learning and revising essential grammar and skills more stimulating when you can relate it to a Business English context.

Full immersion is by far the fastest and most effective way to achieve rapid progress. You will learn quickly, and derive maximum benefit from the time you spend out of the office.

When you are eating and socialising with your host family in a relaxed atmosphere it is easy to start using the structures and vocabulary you learn in formal lessons. In this way you will find that the new items “stick” in your mind, especially combined with the written homework you host tutor will set you to help the assimilation process.

One-to-one lessons with your host tutor, reinforced by the many opportunities for practising you will have from daily interaction with your family, will enable you to increase your confidence to communicate, enhance your vocabulary and make you more at ease in a business environment.

Hours per Week

Select 15, 20, 25 or 30 lessons per week. In addition, you would normally be given between one and
two hours’ work to prepare for the next day’s lessons.

Minimum 1 week. Available to start every week of the year.
