English Language Immersion Training for Business
Abbey’s one-to-one professional English programmes allow maximum adaptation to individual needs. The focus is on giving you practical language skills that are totally relevant to your work and career.
One-to-one immersion programmes are available at all levels but are essential for lower levels, for advanced requirements, and when information is confidential. To select the right course for you, 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 individual training tailored to your needs combined with invaluable practice in group interaction (eg. participating in meetings and conference calls).
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 must be able to take part in everyday social conversations.
Immersion training provides an ideal context for this. 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 a 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 headed by two extraordinary women, involved teachers, with a nice host family selection
- An excellent image: well-known school chosen by international companies."
