Communicate confidently at work, with a Business English course tailored to your level and career goals


You can choose from a full range of Business English courses, including small group morning lessons, afternoon lessons, full day lessons and one-to-one tuition. 

This face-to-face course takes place at our school in Covent Garden, central London.  We have the top floor dedicated to our specialist language training, complete with an exclusive social lounge with stunning panoramic views across the London skyline. 

Who is this course for?

This course is for people who want to improve their English for work. The programme is intensive and allows for fast progress, as you will study in a small group. Choose from three different levels: Intermediate (B1), Upper Intermediate (B2) and Advanced (C1).

Course outline

The focus is on developing your English language confidence and giving you a skill-set for high-level international communication and relationship-building. 

This course focuses on topics relevant to the business world and is personalised to your needs and level. The topics are chosen by the group in consultation with the teacher at the start of each week.

The content will be dependent on the level of your course. A typical B1 course includes:

  • Writing formal business emails
  • Following simple presentations
  • Understanding and analysing short reports
  • Offering advice to clients and colleagues
  • Stating routine requirements (for example assigning tasks at work)

The group face-to-face course in London also includes one to one tutorials to assess your progress and to look at future goals.

Choose from 5, 10 or 15 extra lessons per week. 

The teacher gave a lot of attention to each student, within a small class of 7. There is a good balance between the skills.
