Skills For Work Programme

  1. English for work

The Skills for work  programme is designed to give students a good introduction to the many skills, functions and tasks that take place before, during and after working in a professional environment.  This course is very popular and the focus is mainly on practising your speaking skills and expanding your knowledge of “natural” vocabulary in the work place. The topics are related to experience of working using English both in the UK and abroad and to the language needed in “real life” working situations. For students with lower levels, the focus of the class is to give you plenty of practice  in real and authentic situations that you might experience while staying in the UK. For higher levels we offer the opportunity for you to take part in debates, role plays and presentations.

“Life in Britain”

The Life in Britain course is designed around the students we have at a certain time and also the length of their stay. This course is very popular and the focus is mainly on practicing your speaking skills and expanding your knowledge of “natural” vocabulary. The topics are related to your experience of living in the UK and to the language needed in “real life”. For students with lower levels, the focus of the class is to give you plenty of practice and experience in real and authentic situations that you might have to participate in while staying in the UK. The course also looks at aspects of British life and culture through video, written text and discussion. For higher levels we offer the opportunity for you to take part in debates, role plays and presentations.
