Business English for Executives and Professionals courses are designed for business executives and professionals with specific language requirements, who only have a limited amount of time available. Students are asked to complete a needs analysis before starting the course, enabling teachers to assess your particular language requirements and to formulate a program tailored to your needs. Your progress is constantly monitored, and your course adapted to meet your needs and priorities.
For students who work in a specific industry we can offer specialist courses. These courses can be combined with General English and/or Business English as well as being taken by themselves.
Throughout the course, we ask for your opinion, and you are able to work with your teacher to design your course. At the end of your course, you will receive a certificate for presentation to employers. All executive students also receive a written evaluation of their progress.
You can combine Business English with General English. Topics covered in Executive Buisness English courses include remedial work on pronunciation, accent reduction, vocabulary building and writing skills, specific to your profession.
You can also study:
- Telephone skills
- Interviewing techniques
- Conferences and meetings
- Reading and discussing business publications
- Business writing: memos, letters, reports
- Cross-cultural tips
- Social and business customs
- Simulated business situations and role-plays
Business English courses for Executives and Professionals are offered in small groups and one-to-one according to students' specific needs.
Special VIP Program: Combine your vacation and/or business plans in South Florida with improving your English language skills. America's best legendary resort - The Breakers Palm Beach - offeres special rates for our executive Business English students.
The Breakers was founded on the sands of Palm Beach in 1896 by Henry M. Flagler, one of America's great industrialists, who started the trend of grand, gorgeous properties on the island.
Year by year, the resort's reputation grew and word spread, beckoning the glitterati to vacation in Palm Beach year-round. At any given time, the guest register read like a "who's who" of early 20th-century America: Rockefellers, Vanderbilts, Astors, Andrew Carnegie and J.P. Morgan, vacationing alongside US presidents and European nobility.
Today, the story of The Breakers continues, holding fast to the ideals that put it on the map-unapologetic luxury, seaside glamour and world-class service.
The package includes:
- Private English language course tailored to your specific needs. 30 lessons a week including "English Outside the Classroom". You can take classes at the Institute located in 5 minutes drive or we can send a teacher to The Breakers.
- Deluxe King or Premium King/ Double room.
- Complimentary daily valet parking.
- Wireless and high-speed internet access.
- Access to the Beach Club - a private outdoor oasis: a series of four glittering pools, dotted by 8 restaurants, bars, chaise lounges and chic bungalows.
- Access to the new 6,000-square-foot indoor-outdoor Ocean Fitness facility.
- Fitness studio with an array of classes taught by expert instructors.
Each day, The Breakers' private half mile of beach acts as a playground for a long list of watersports. Gather there to embark on an exciting scuba or snorkeling tour, taking you under the sea to explore the reefs and marine life that lie just beyond The Breakers' back door.
For scenery above the water's surface, try kayaking, paddle boarding or a ride on the resort's Hobie Cat. And for an adventure on the Atlantic that's decidedly relaxed, opt for a sunset Catamaran Cruise - the most glamorous way to see Palm Beach.
Home to Florida's oldest 18 holes and a renowned contemporary course, The Breakers is the envy of the golf world.
The Breakers offers guests 10 beautifully groomed Har-Tru Tennis courts, a comprehensive Pro Shop with the latest fashions and equipment, as well as clinics and private court sessions with USPTA/USPTR-certified professional instructors.
