Professional English Immersion Programme for Business
Our one-to-one professional English programmes allow maximum adaptation to individual needs. This solution is therefore strongly recommended for short courses. One-to-one immersion programs are available at all levels but are essential for lower levels, for advanced requirements, and when information is confidential. To select the right course, first see our Guide to Levels.
Combined courses: Half-days of one-to-one training and half-days of group training, from level B1 (lower intermediate) upwards. A cost-effective solution, with practice in group interaction and an adaptation to individual needs.
Group courses: to meet the shared interactive needs of the group, from level B1 up. Maximum group size: 4.
Time-to-study courses: individual solutions at low cost.
Our trainers form a mature, stable and well-coordinated team, and are selected for their qualifications, for their skills in teaching English to adults, and for their experience in business and commercial environments.
Social & Everyday English
To be effective in business you have to be able to take part in everyday social conversations.
Immersion training provides an ideal context for this, and in addition to all the informal opportunities for conversation we take advantage of the chance to develop language skills in games, walks, lunches and breaks, dinners with hosts, and social evenings.
There's always a lot to talk about, and it all contributes to more idiomatic and confident use of English.

"Trust me, I've made incredible improvements and I now feel much more self-confident in English. I'm now able to speak more fluently in meetings, during conference calls and even in presentations! Their unique methodology works perfectly:
- Tailor-made professional programmes according to the level and the needs of the individual
- Small groups of 2-3 people and role-play games in business situations, plus one-to-one training
- Very intensive and non-stop English speaking: from 9.00am to 5.00pm, plus social English with the family, and evening activities
- Very professional: a final report with qualitative feedback
- Very friendly: small school leaded by two extraordinary women, involved teachers, with a nice host family selection
- An excellent image: well-known school chosen by international companies."
