Business English for work

Any Business English language course should have a clear purpose

If you want to efficiently improve your professional language skills, the best place to achieve this goal is in a learning environment where the teacher and the other students share your objective. It’s not usually learning the industry vocabulary, but rather tasks such as writing well-formulated emails, conducting negotiations, giving presentations or simply making small talk on the phone before a telephone conference that create the biggest challenges at work. In a Business English course, you will practise and improve all these skills. You will not only strengthen your command of the English language, but also increase your confidence in using it in a professional environment. Whether you require an intensive course for young professionals or a specialist course for managers and executives, we will support you in finding the right option at one of the best business schools, either in London, or at one of the excellent value establishments outside the UK capital city.

Structure is the key

Many Business English courses also include training in basic English language skills. Any typical mistakes that you have picked up over the years will be corrected, your written English will be improved, and you will be able to practise your speaking and listening skills. A solid understanding of General English is necessary to achieve fluency and confidence in Business English.

The business element of your Business English course will focus on the skills required in the workplace, such as contract negotiation, telephone etiquette and writing business correspondence. Industry specific courses with specialized content are also available for, for example, lawyers or engineers. Sometimes it is helpful to book a course of one-to-one lessons. You will be able to work quickly and effectively with your teacher and the lessons will be tailored to your needs.

Business English for a successful career

Whatever stage of your career you have reached, whether you are an intern, an office worker or the managing director, there will be a language school suitable for you. Prices are determined by factors such as the type of course and the location of the school, and we have found that there are excellent courses available in every price category. For example, there are inexpensive courses for young professionals, which include interview training and Curriculum Vitae writing. All our schools have been independently inspected and accredited by the British Council, which guarantees excellence in every field, from the teaching quality to the learning environment.

B. Volkmann's feedback:

The atmosphere at the business language school is extraordinary! The teachers are fabulous!

They always boost the students with positive feedback, are challenging and motivational at the same time, while structuring their lessons to make them vibrant and entertaining. I had a lot of fun and learned a lot. It apparently was coincidence that only a few students were there at the time. The teachers were exchanging information among themselves and always knew what we were learning and how we were performing in the other lessons.

 

T. Münch's feedback:

I want to start my feedback with a Thank You.

I only got the idea of participating in a language course in England in spring this year. In the search for suitable schools I found your offer and immediately called you. Thanks to the detailed phone call and the information about selected business language schools, I quickly found the right offer. In our second conversation you then helped me with the booking and the organization of the journey. Thank you for the extensive support!

N. Streich's feedback:

It was the ideal business school and the perfect environment for my needs.

Many thanks for the mediation. Especially impressive were the teachers (motivated and motivational) and thus the quality of the lessons.
