Our ONE-TO-ONE ENGLISH FOR PROFESSIONALS COURSE is ideal for those who wish to improve their English within the
context of their profession or business. English is the language of international
business and effective communication in this language has never been so
important. Our Professional course is designed to ensure that lessons
are presented in a professional setting with specific reference and relevance
to your profession or business.
We appreciate that, as a professional, your time is limited and you have
very specific requirements. For this reason a one-to-one English immersion
course with a qualified and experienced tutor is the ideal solution
ensuring that your specific language needs are met in an efficient but
thoroughly enjoyable manner. As your course is delivered by your tutor
in the tutor's home this means that no time is lost travelling to and
from your course. Lessons are relevant, personalised and centred around
you - with you and only you in mind!
Our English for Professionals course can be arranged for practically any
professional purpose and by way of example only include the following
areas of professional activity:
English for Accountancy, English for Business, English for the Financial Sector,English for Information Technology, English for Law, English for Management, English for Marketing, English for Presentations, English for Tutors, English for the Technical Sector etc.
Please let us know your requirements and we will be pleased to design
a course that meets your exact needs and place you with a tutor who
is qualified in your chosen field.
Following a needs analysis your tutor will design a course that focuses
on your particular language needs. This course will cover many areas including
pronunciation, sentence/word stress, grammar, vocabulary as well as the
four skills - speaking, listening, reading and writing. Error
correction and identification and monitoring and reduction of repetitive
errors is always a priority and is a very important component of our courses.
Your course will also cover professional tasks such as Presenting,
Meetings, Negotiating, Interviewing, Writing Reports and Business Reports/Correspondence, not forgetting Socialising and appropriate
language for such situations.
Your tutor will carefully discuss your needs with you in the first lesson
and design your course based on these needs and of course your wishes!
You are encouraged to bring work related materials with you - work documents,
brochures, presentations, correspondence etc. - and these can be incorporated
into your course where appropriate. Your continuing language needs are
constantly monitored and the course focus can be altered to take these
into account. Flexibility is important and of course more easily practised
in the context of a one-to- one course!
In this way we can offer an individually designed course that is relevant
to your specific professional/business needs. After all your time is limited
and you want to study those areas that are identified as relevant to you!
ENGLISH LEVEL REQUIRED: This course is suitable for everybody from complete beginner to those with an advanced standard.
FREQUENCY: Courses commence every week from January to December (excluding Christmas).
COST: from €1150 (15 hours), €1350 (20 hours) and €1550 (25 hours) for one week. Full board and accommodation for dates selected. If you do not require accommodation and meals please follow this link for lessons only.

Information on all courses
Every course involves some work on pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary,
speaking, listening, reading and writing. In your language needs analysis
you will discuss the approximate amount of time you would like to spend
on the various language areas. Your tutor will of course give you professional
advice but your wishes are always respected and taken into account in
every course! Therefore the content and direction of your course is planned
with you and only you in mind.
Lessons for all courses are 60 minutes each including a short rest period with your tutor
and take place in the morning and early afternoon depending on the number
of lessons you have booked. The exact schedule will be discussed and agreed
with your teacher on the first morning; however, it is usual to have the
majority, if not all, of the lessons completed in the morning. This schedule
will enable you to maximise your free time to explore the city and surrounding
There will be a certain amount of homework assigned each day connected
to the language covered. This provides a chance for valuable practice
of what you have learned and allows your tutor to monitor your progress.
The amount of homework assigned is agreed with you and should take no
more than an hour or so to complete.
On the final day of your course there will be an opportunity for feedback
and your tutor will recommend a strategy for future study when you return
home. We invite you to keep in touch with us and your tutor as we are
interested in your progress and of course hope to see you back at some
time in the future.
