Foreign Language Development Programmes

Training at times to suit you

We realise that if your work schedule often changes you may not be able to plan your training programme very much in advance.

That is why we offer flexible language development programmes. These part-time courses are designed to fit around you and your changing work commitments. They allow you to learn a foreign language in the time that you have available. You simply choose when you want to study.

      Languages: All world languages
      Programme: Part-time training spread over a period of weeks
      Course Content: Practical communication skills ot suit your needs & level
      Starting Dates: To suit your work schedule

For example, you may decide to take a module of ten 3-hour sessions (on various days of your choice) over a three month period or twenty 2-hour session over a 2 month period.  It is entirely up to you.

The programme flexibility also means you can use time between lessons to try out the language at work – so that you can see what areas you need to improve or develop. You may also want to use the opportunity to fit in work trips to your chosen country for extra practice.

If you find you have more time available in the future, you can also choose to combine the programme with our more intensive individual tuition language courses.
