This course will cover many areas including pronunciation, sentence/word stress, grammar, vocabulary as well as the four skills - speaking, listening, reading and writing.

ENGLISH FOR PRESENTATIONS

Our ONE-TO-ONE PROFESSIONAL ENGLISH FOR PRESENTATIONS COURSE is part of our professional programme and ideal for those who need to improve their language skills in this area leading to better quality and more confident presentations.

Making effective presentations is an important part of professional life and without doubt enhances career advancement. While the art of presenting is a difficult one to master, it is no exaggeration to state that the language content is just as important.

Our courses are designed to present a structured approach to practising this skill focusing on good pronunciation, appropriate use of language and good technique. Emphasis on correct pronunciation is vitally important for effective communication and so often overlooked. The language of presentations is not so difficult to learn. Nevertheless, you need a professional tutor who will guide you on pronunciation, choice of language, and comment objectively on your technique and give you honest and detailed feedback and correction on your performance.

Presentations are prepared in a structured manner taking into account the type of presentation appropriate to the presenter with a clear ‘road map’ and identified visual aids. Variables such as type of audience, numbers attending, place of presentation etc. are taken into account. Presentations are recorded for feedback and correction as appropriate. This is particularly useful for monitoring pronunciation and grammatical structures not forgetting technique.

Every part of a presentation, from the introduction to the conclusion stage leading sometimes to a question and answer session, is formulated, practised, recorded, reformulated, re-presented and recorded once again until the presenter is comfortable with all aspects of the presentation. This is done in a dynamic and stimulating manner to ensure that the presenter stays motivated, achieves his or her objectives and communicates the message of the presentation to attendees in a clear and professional manner.

PERSONALISED COURSE: We appreciate that, as a professional, your time is limited and you have very specific requirements. For this reason a one-to-one English course with a qualified and experienced teacher is the ideal solution ensuring that your specific language needs are met in an efficient but thoroughly enjoyable manner.

ENGLISH FOR MEETINGS

Our ONE-TO-ONE PROFESSIONAL ENGLISH FOR MEETINGS COURSE is part of our professional programme and ideal for those who need to improve their language skills in this area leading to better quality and more confident presentations.

Over the years our business and professional clients have told us that participating in meetings in English is one of the most difficult tasks facing them.

Making effective contributions at all kinds of meetings is an important part of professional life and without doubt enhances career advancement.

Our courses are designed to present a structured approach to practising participation at meetings focusing on good pronunciation, appropriate use of language and good delivery for various situations. Emphasis on correct pronunciation is vitally important for effective communication and so often overlooked.

IELTS EXAM

Our SPECIALISED ONE-TO-ONE ENGLISH FOR IELTS COURSE (INTERNATIONAL ENGLISH LANGUAGE TESTING SYSTEM) will appeal to those who wish to improve their English for examinations such as the respected IELTS English examination.

The examination tests the four language skills of Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing, and can be taken at specific times during the year.

The IELTS test is described as 'the high-stakes English test for study, migration or work' by the organisers. It may be taken as a General or Academic test depending on one's objectives.

IELTS Examination

The IELTS (International English Language Testing System) examination is the most widely recognised qualification for entrance to British, Irish, Australian, New Zealand and Canadian universities, as well as other secondary education institutes and vocational and training programmes.

The Listening and Speaking tests are the same for both versions, while there are differences in the Reading and Writing tests.

IELTS ACADEMIC

The IELTS Academic test is for people applying for higher education or professional registration in an English speaking environment. It reflects some of the features of academic language and assesses whether you are ready to begin studying or training. This approach is widely supported by the institutions that recognise IELTS.

IELTS GENERAL

The IELTS General Training test is for those who are going to English speaking countries for secondary education, work experience or training programs. It is also a requirement for migration to Ireland, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the UK. The test focuses on basic survival skills in broad social and workplace contexts.

ENGLISH FOR LAW

Our comprehensive and practical ONE-TO-ONE ENGLISH FOR LAW COURSE is part of our professional programme and ideal for those who require this specific type of professional course. Your tutor will have legal qualifications and many years of experience in the practice of law which is absolutely essential for a successful course. Your one-to-one lessons will focus particularly on the language skills and legal aspects that are important for you. This will ensure rapid and meaningful progress in achieving your objectives and permitting you to communicate in a more effective manner.

These courses are suitable for legal practitioners who need to improve their legal English, other professionals who require knowledge of Legal English and students preparing for a career in Law, university degrees in Law or Criminology, degrees in other fields with law as a component and examinations.

Please note that our sister company English for Law offers professional courses suitable for busy legal practitioners who require in-depth knowledge of practice and procedure in addition to English language tuition. This may be of interest to lawyers, interpreters, translators and those beginning a new career in law.

We can offer courses covering (but not limited to) such areas as English for: ADVOCACY - ARBITRATION - COMPANY LAW - COMMERCIAL LAW - COMPARATIVE LAW - CONTRACT LAW - CRIMINAL LAW - DEFAMATION LAW - ENGLISH FOR DRAFTING DOCUMENTS - LEGAL ENGLISH FOR LAW STUDENTS - EMPLOYMENT LAW - GENERAL PRACTICE OF LAW - INSURANCE LAW - INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY - INTERNATIONAL LAW - LITIGATION - MEDIA LAW - NEGOTIABLE INSTRUMENTS - LEGAL PROCEDURE - REAL PROPERTY - TORT LAW

Frequently, we are asked for courses that focus on aspects of legal writing, drafting of contractual documents, meeting, greeting, advising and dealing with clients, aspects of court advocacy, communicating and explaining legal issues with English speaking colleagues, negotiating and making presentations to name a few. Every course is unique and focused on your individual needs and objectives.

One particular aspect of our courses relates to the difficulties that exist in explaining the differences in laws and practice and procedure between Common Law jurisdictions and Codified Law systems of non-English speaking jurisdictions. This can be quite difficult for lawyers to do and even more difficult for clients to fully understand. Our courses take this difficulty into account so that, for example, an Italian lawyer can focus on properly explaining the effect of an Italian statute to an English speaking colleague using language used and understood by English speaking lawyers. Of course we also cover normal language and terms which are more easily understood by clients who need clear and concise explanations. Effective communication is a key element of our courses with correct and good use of English as a priority. The four core skills - speaking, listening, writing and reading - are practised together with appropriate vocabulary and phrase building, pronunciation and correct use of grammar as needed. Your needs and objectives are clearly identified before and at course commencement and language weaknesses addressed in a professional and helpful manner.

If you would like to enrol for our one-to-one Legal English course or need further information please contact us and provide as much information as possible advising the areas you would like to study. We will be pleased to design a course that meets your exact needs. Every course is unique and we have great experience in presenting Legal English courses for many years with great feedback.

We will be pleased to discuss any aspect with you prior to course booking so that you have all the information you need. It may also be possible to put you in contact with some of our past students who have taken legal courses with us. You can always speak directly to us by phone should you wish for a more personal touch - please contact us through our form on 'contact us' or send us an e mail and we will phone you at a time convenient to you and without commitment on your part.

PERSONALISED COURSE: We appreciate that, as a professional, your time is limited and you have very specific requirements. For this reason a one-to-one English 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. Lessons are relevant, personalised and centred around you - with you and only you in mind!

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 identification and correction, monitoring and reduction of repetitive errors are always a priority and are a very important component of our courses.

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, previous and current 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!

As with all our courses, your specific needs will be identified and prioritised in the first lesson and the course will be designed to meet these needs. Our one-to-one method allows for continuous monitoring of progress and meeting evolving language needs so you can rest assured that your tutor will be flexible to ensure your course is relevant to your needs.

ENGLISH FOR ACADEMIC PURPOSES (EAP)

Our ONE-TO-ONE ENGLISH FOR ACADEMIC PURPOSES (EAP) COURSE will appeal to those who wish to study English for various academic objectives, such as preparing for university, essay writing, English for theses, developing study skills, writing conventions, use of English for educational purposes, English for school etc. This course is suitable for those who need to develop their English in an academic context focusing on those skills necessary to achieve this objective. English for Academic Purposes has always been part of our English for Special Purposes programme but it has become so popular that we now have a separate programme for academic purposes.

EAP courses are different from general English courses in that the language presented and practised always has an academic objective. Take for example a student who has succeeded in entering a university faculty and needs to improve his/her level of English to a proper academic standard. Perhaps a student is preparing a thesis and needs assistance in formulating appropriate language without in any way committing any act of plagiarism which has very serious consequences in the academic world. The course focuses on those skills and language areas that require immediate attention with very specific and well identified objectives to achieve. These courses make use of specific vocabulary, structures and tasks related to the academic field including the development of such skills as effective communication, use of language and effective techniques for oral presentations and other skills identified at course commencement. Course feedback informs us that one-to-one tutoring is ideal and particularly effective for these situations being adapted to meet very particular needs.

As with all our courses, your specific needs will be identified and prioritised in the first lesson and the course will be designed to meet these needs. Our one-to-one method allows for continuous monitoring of progress and meeting evolving language needs so you can rest assured that your teacher will be flexible to ensure your course is relevant to your needs.

The ultimate objective for taking an EAP course with us is to increase your skill and confidence in using English for a stated and clearly identifiable purpose.

We appreciate that 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 teacher is the ideal solution ensuring that your specific language needs are met in an efficient but thoroughly enjoyable manner. Lessons are relevant, personalised and centred around you - with you and only you in mind!

Your teacher will carefully discuss your needs with you in the first lesson and carefully design your course based on these needs and your wishes! You are encouraged to bring all relevant related materials with you - working documents, notes, company literature, electronic and written presentations, correspondence etc. - and these can be worked on and incorporated into your course as 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 needs. After all we know your time is limited and you want to study those areas that are identified as relevant to you!

LESSON DURATION: Lessons are 60 minutes duration.

DOCUMENTATION: We negotiate a Needs Analysis and Course Plan with you prior to course commencement, conduct an Assessment of English level, complete daily Lesson Sheets which contains details of the lesson topics and aims for reference, provide a Certificate of Attendance signed by our Course Director at course conclusion and forward you a Progress Report (on request) by e mail within one week of course conclusion.

ADVICE: Our EAP English courses are specialised and we advise that you take a course of 20 hours per week and ideally for two weeks or more if possible.

ENGLISH LEVEL REQUIRED: Intermediate level of English as a minimum. If your level is presently below this standard you might consider taking a general English course with us for one or two weeks followed by our EAP Course.

FREQUENCY: Courses commence every week from January to December (excluding Christmas).

TUTORS: Our tutors for this course are professionals and experienced English language tutors. They are dedicated tutors with academic backgrounds and have high level qualifications in addition to English language teaching diplomas.

COST: One-to-One English for Special Purposes (ESP) courses start at €60 per hour with packages of 10, 15 and 20 hours available from €570, €840 and €1120 respectively.

ENGLISH FOR SPECFIC or SPECIAL PURPOSES (ESP)

Our ONE-TO-ONE ENGLISH FOR SPECIFIC or SPECIAL PURPOSES (ESP) COURSE is suitable for those with a specific purpose in mind and require improvement in one or more of the language skills. The course focuses on developing those skills with very specific objectives in mind at all times. English for Specific Purposes is a broad title for Professional English courses that are specifically concerned with English for Occupational Purposes (for your job or profession) and English for Academic Purposes. We at Immersion Languages understand it to be the study of English for specially identified purposes and the course is not exclusively focused on language but also on those specific skills and aspects directly connected to the objectives.

ESP courses are different from general English courses in that the language presented and practised and the subject matter discussed all relate to a particular field or discipline. Take for example a policy paper being developed by a diplomat or other public or private individual, a prospective employee who wishes to prepare for an important job or other form of interview and someone writing an academic paper. The course focuses on those skills and language areas that require immediate attention with very specific and well identified objectives to achieve. These courses make use of specific vocabulary, structures and tasks related to the required field including the development of such skills as effective communication, negotiation and effective techniques for oral presentations and other skills identified at course commencement. Course feedback informs us that one-to-one tutoring is ideal and particularly effective for these situations being adapted to meet very particular needs.

As with all our courses, your specific needs will be identified and prioritised in the first lesson and the course will be designed to meet these needs.

We appreciate that 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 teacher 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 teacher in the teacher'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!

Your teacher will carefully discuss your needs with you in the first lesson and carefully design your course based on these needs and your wishes! You are encouraged to bring all relevant related materials with you - working documents, notes, company literature, electronic and written presentations, correspondence etc. - and these can be worked on and incorporated into your course as appropriate. Your continuing language needs are constantly monitored and the course focus can be altered to take these into account.
