Our Business English classes are designed to help you gain the skills and confidence you need to communicate more effectively in the workplace.

Each course is based on a coursebook appropriate for your level. Teachers will also base lessons around the needs of the group and will utilise materials from authentic sources such as journals, newspapers, videos and podcasts. We provide certain materials free of charge, depending on the length of your course.

Our courses use a communicative methodology, meaning there is a strong focus on speaking and listening skills. They are designed to help you express yourself more fluently and confidently when communicating with clients and colleagues at different levels and in various work situations.

Business English is delivered in small groups and covers skills and topics relevant to today’s professionals. These topics may include: negotiation skills; presentations; telephone skills; interview skills; meetings; networking; emails and written communication.
