30+ Professional Language Course

Our 30+ Professional Language Course offers lessons based around the individual needs of the participants, but with an emphasis on improving speaking and listening skills in both social and business contexts.

Details & Highlights

When you enrol on our 30+ Professional Language Course, we will ask you to complete a detailed needs analysis so we can design a course based round your aims and objectives as well as those of the other participants on the course.

You will have 18 hours of English tuition with enthusiastic, trained teachers.  All our 30+ lessons include language enhancement and error correction and are focused round stimulating and up to date topics, including business English and aspects of British culture.  Your sessions include a 1.5 hour talk and question & answer session with an outside speaker (for example, a solicitor, bank manager, prison visitor or architect).

Lesson topics could include –

  • Britishness
  • Advertising Campaigns
  • Breaking News
  • Office Politics
  • Great journeys

During the course you will also take part in a half day London excursion and an evening event.  The actual activities are decided each week by the participants but could include –

  • visit to the City of London & Bank of England
  • legal London walk
  • exploring the Southwark area of London
  • traditional afternoon tea*
  • visit to a famous historic pub*
  • fish & chip supper*
  • (*costs not included)

Outside the classroom, you can take part in an optional 2 hours of guided self study and use the Excel English App to continue improving your English.  We also offer all our students a range of social activities, especially on the free Friday afternoons, to help you explore London, and speak more fluently.

By the end of your course, you will have gained more confidence communicating in English, increased your vocabulary, explored aspects of the language and improved your accuracy.
