Available to students aged 21 and over, our Business English course has been designed for graduates, business professionals, mature students and ambitious learners who would prefer to learn English in smaller groups, creating a more focused learning environment. Those who are studying business, preparing for an MBA or are getting ready for a new job in a business sector may find this English for business programme more beneficial than a standard General English course.
This course is helpful for those who want to quickly improve their English in a concentrated environment. You will be part of a small class of just 4-8 students which provides more teacher to student focus, therefore giving you a greater level of personal attention in class. The course can be made to suit your needs, meaning that you should be able to progress quickly and effectively.
All of our Business English teachers have business experience which will create a rewarding place for you to learn and develop. When teaching Business English, your tutor will use materials from the Internet and newspapers so that you can apply the language to real-life situations. We can also provide specialist, industry-focused sessions as part of the programme in the form of one-to-one lessons.
The course content is personalised to the group, but popular topics include:
- Job application and interview practice
- Useful business terms and expressions
- Vocabulary related to services, products, finance and marketing
- Business correspondance – written business communication such as letters, emails, and reports
