Our methods

Our teaching approach helps students to develop their language skills in order to be able to communicate effectively in an English speaking environment. Our Business English cover all language skills but focus more on speaking and listening. Emphasis is placed on communication tasks which give you the opportunity to practise fluency and build confidence in business situations.

Each lesson is based on one of these topics and features role plays, case studies and discussions. Our experienced business tutors help you to build on your existing knowledge of both Business and English with all the specialist English language input and realistic role-play situations you need for your future career.  Throughout the course students are encouraged to use their own experience and opinions in order to maximise involvement and learning.
