For an even more intensive course, we can offer participants on our 30+ Professional Language Course the opportunity to add 6 extra hours of individual lessons each week to work on particular language needs.
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. The syllabus for your individual lessons will focus on your exact requirements.
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 lessons 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 –
During the course you will also take part in a half day London excursion and an evening event led by one of your teachers. The actual activities are decided each week by the participants but could include –
Your individual lessons take place after your 3 afternoon Professional Language lessons so you can still benefit from the weekly excursion and evening activity.
Outside the classroom, you can 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 according to your particular needs, and improved your accuracy.
