General Business English courses aim to provide a strong foundation in grammar and vocabulary, but a language is more than just linguistic knowledge. To build on this foundation, our courses also focus on workplace skills such as small talk, presenting, negotiating, telephoning, emailing and more.
Each course is tailored to fit the student’s and company’s needs to provide the knowledge and confidence to work and thrive in an English business environment.
Whether you are learning a language for daily business, a specific purpose or even preparing for an exam, our trainers have the knowledge and experience to help you get to where you want to be.
