Why come to the UK and then shut yourself away in an environment where you can only talk to other language students and sympathetic course trainers speaking safe, classroom English?
Engage with the real English all around you and feel the sense of achievement at handling real-life business situations where there is always something ‘at stake’.
Our innovative approach provides international executive clients with:
I could improve my English language skills and at the same time I could also deepen my specialist knowledge across the entire spectrum of British healthcare. Chris arranged for me to meet counterparts working in more than 15 different fields of healthcare so I got to experience extremely different language situations and meeting scenarios. I received preparatory material prior to each meeting; Chris took notes continuously on what everyone said at each of the meetings and then afterwards we talked through, analysed and practised the real-life scenarios which had come up both from a professional and a language perspective.Dr. Krisztina TörökChief Executive, GYEMSZI (Hungarian NHS)
These targeted training solutions for client-specific groups – typically, management and professional English for a broad range of sectors, business writing, presentation skills, meeting and negotiation skills, business socialising and building client relations - can be delivered in the UK or at client locations on a ‘fly-in’ basis.
Our task-based communication seminars provide executive clients with:
As a business English learner, given time and work commitments, you will respond best to customised training which achieves agreed, precisely defined targets and generates tangible results in your work.
This is a customised language and soft skills assessment tool. Competences of a designated selection of staff members are evaluated through a range of targeted tasks designed according to clearly defined criteria and performance objectives agreed with the sponsoring client.
A follow-up audit report summarises appraisals and sets out recommendations. This serves as a valuable tool against which staff learning and development targets may be set and future progress measured. In addition to delivering training ourselves we look to advise sponsoring clients on the most appropriate and effective language and skills training solutions to suit their learning needs and targets, timeframes and budgets.
One-to-one and Business English are often just expensive tag-ons to large General English group courses and frequently so simplistic in content as to be worthless for most professionals.
