English for specific purposes

The objective of these short, focused English courses is to help the student rapidly acquire the vocabulary and phrases to operate in one of the following areas:

● tourism and hospitality (hotel receptionists, tour operators, waiters, barmen);

● retail (sales assistants, sales agents);

● job interview preparation.

The lesson support material (texts, exercises, etc..) is specific for each sector.

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.

In the event of group lessons, each student can connect from the place he/she happens to be in. It is not necessary for students to 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 courses

The standard duration of each course is 20 hours. The real duration may vary depending on the student’s initial knowledge of English and the speed of student learning.

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 order to follow with profit these courses, it is necessary to have already completed at minimum the Elementary General English Level (CEFR A2) ►.

Services included

The cost of individual lessons or group lessons includes, for each student, the following services:

the placement test to assess the level of English;

the support material used during the lesson: texts, exercises, etc. e-mailed to the student before each lesson;

the final report with the evaluation of results achieved (after at least 20 lessons);

The certificate of course completion/attendance (after at least 20 lessons).
