We specialise in improving the communication skills of international professionals. We don't teach students or teenagers- only individuals who need English for their work. This means we can guarantee you will work with like-minded individuals of a similar age and professional background.
The average age of participants is 41, most are in mid to senior management positions from a broad range of sectors and all are highly motivated. The programme is focused, intensive and goal-oriented. It is also stimulating and fun!
Whether you take your training on a one-to-one, micro-group or combination basis, we make sure that there are plenty of opportunities to mix with other participants on a range of social activities. This means that not only will you have the chance to practise your social English but also develop your intercultural skills. Also because of the homogeneity of our clients, you spend less time worrying about who you will be training with and more time getting to know them.
Our participants come from a wide range of business and professional sectors. This makes for a stimulating and motivating atmosphere in which to train. You will enjoy exchanging experience with colleagues from around the world and there are plenty of opportunities for business networking.
When arranging the micro-groups we consider, in addition to level, position and personality, each participant's sector and their compatibility within the training group. Our aim is to recreate work environments which are as authentic as possible. We give you the confidence to practise newly acquired skills, to take risks and in this way improve under the supervision of your trainer.
When devising activities and participant roles within them, we customise according to your professional needs. For example, we might role play a crisis meeting in which one participant who is an HR Director, one who is a line manager and one a lawyer try to resolve an employment dispute.
Whether in the training room or outside you will find many opportunities to meet and socialise with like-minded professionals from a wide range of sectors, companies and cultures.

It's just a selection, so if you or your company have a specific requirement, please feel free to contact us with the details of your training needs and we will be happy to discuss this further with you.
