Executive Group Programme - London

The Executive Group Programme is an intensive business and professional English language group programme. The groups are small (maximum 6 participants) allowing each person to get maximum benefit from the programme.  Participants on this course work in a challenging and dynamic environment with delegates from many parts of the world. They develop Business English language skills through activities such as realistic case studies and discussions of business problems. Integrated Personal Study sessions allow participants to practise enhanced comprehension skills for professional interaction with clients.

Our intensive course ensures participants to develop their confidence and fluency in English. For Business English students, persuasion and negotiation are key skills and these are developed through role-plays and work-related simulations. Specialised grammar and vocabulary for business situations, including meetings and presentations, are consolidated throughout the programme.

Executive Group Combination - London

Residential Combination Programme - Cheney Court

The Combination Business English Programme is for participants looking to combine group interaction with the opportunity to focus on their own specific language needs. The course combines half-day group and half-day individual tuition, allowing participants to take part in group activities such as meetings and role-play scenarios, while making time available for individual study focusing on specific areas of interest such as e.g. technical vocabulary, the preparation of a report for a client or working on an important presentation.

Optional workshops are held at the end of the day. These allow participants to continue to build on what they have learned during their training, focusing on e.g vocabulary, listening skills or developing learning strategies.

Our professional and enthusiastic trainers for both the Executive Group Programme and Executive Group Combination programme work with all participants to meet their individual language requirements. The progress of each participant is monitored constantly throughout the course.

The training centres - London Training Centre and Cheney Court Training Centre - are equipped with a good level of technology. This includes access to Linguarama Connect, the Linguarama web-based learning programme which is available to help support all participants throughout their courses. This provides on-demand learning resources focused on developing Business English language skills.
