English for Business and Work

Experience a very practical course in English for Business and Work.

This is an opportunity for visiting school groups to experience a week or two in the UK and practise their English in a business and work context. During the afternoons the students will participate in work related projects and investigate, explore and give a final presentation. This is a very practical course. Your students will use English in the work place visiting a company, taking part in a workshop and in company talk.  You can choose from many different Business and Work modules or you can ask to study a specific topic. LanguageUK will provide your group with a specially-designed programme just for them. LanguageUK has a sample programme which can be sent to you.
