These courses focus on topics and supporting materials which are specific to the world of work and business.

We provide individual lessons (1-to-1) or small group lessons of maximum 4 students.

Our lessons and courses are provided by qualified English mother tongue teachers. Our method of teaching is the communicative approach.

Courses and lessons are organised to stimulate the curiosity and interaction with the student. The strong emphasis placed on conversation and interesting, up-to-date digital support material (texts, explanations, exercises etc.) make the lessons enjoyable and most importantly effective.

Lessons are customised as much as possible to the specific needs of the individual student or group, focusing on the areas of greatest difficulty (grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, etc.).

In the event of group lessons, each student can connect from the place he/she happens to be in. It is not necessary that students travel to a common meeting place. This option is particularly useful for companies with multiple locations or personnel off site. Each student must have a computer and a fast broadband connection (at least 8 Mb/s).

Lessons are available from 8:00am to 8:00pm Monday to Friday and from 8:00am to 1:00pm on Saturday (GMT-Dublin time). Please check your corresponding local time at www.timeanddate.com .

The levels

The Business English course is divided into 4 levels with reference to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) .

The corresponding levels BEC (Business English Certificate) are defined by the University of Cambridge ESOL in brackets below:

● Business English Elementary - CEFR A2

● Business English Pre-Intermediate - CEFR B1 (BEC 1 - Preliminary Business)

● Business English Intermediate - B2 CEFR (2 BEC - Vantage Business)

● Business English Advanced CEFR C1 (3 BEC - Business Higher)

The standard duration of each level is 60 hours. The real duration may vary depending on the student’s initial knowledge of English and the speed of student learning.

You can choose the number of lessons you prefer, from a short package of a few hours to a complete course package of sixty hours.
