All of our specific courses are tailor made to meet the exact communicative needs of the participants. Before the course, you will complete a thorough needs analysis which will allow us to
determine exactly what needs to be included in the course to allow you to meet your personal objectives in the minimum time.
Because specific purpose courses are so personal, they are often taught on a one to one basis. However, if you have colleagues with similar neds, or if you are a company and organisation
which needs specific purpose courses for its employees, group courses can also be organised. As always, the courses can be taught face to face or online, intensively or over a longer
Some of the areas in which we have worked in the past include :
English for Tourism and Hospitality
English for Medical Professionals
English for University Lecturers and Researchers
English for Translation and Interpreting
... and many more. But these are just the general areas. The course you take will be much more specialised. Some examples :
- If you follow one of our Legal English courses, the course content will focus
specifically on the branch of law (criminal law, family law, contract law etc) and the reasons why you need to communicate in English - perhaps because some of your clients don't speak your own
language, or because you work on international cases and need to liaise with colleagues handling the case in another country.
- Are you a dentist? A physiotherapist? An oncologist? A nurse? Do you need to communicate with patients in English, or do you want to participate in
international conferences or improve your ability to read/write research papers in English? Whatever your needs our English for Medical
Professionals courses can help you meet them.
- If you work in any area which deals with tourists - if you're a hotel receptionist, a tour guide or a waiter in a restaurant - you'll need to speak English. The courses
in our English for Tourism and Hospitality are designed with your needs in mind.
- These days, more and more university level courses are being taught in English, and it's common for university lecturers and researchers to move to other countries for
work. Whether you need English to lecture to students, run tutorials or give written feedback on assignments, or whether you wish to improve your ability to read and write papers in your own academic
subject, our English for University
Lecturers and Researchers courses will help you achieve your objectives.
