You and your group can be trained by our native speaker qualified English teachers, and can meet at your place of work or home at a time convenient to you. Tutorials can take place any day of the week, including weekends, and can be scheduled for the morning, afternoon or evening. If your home or office is not suitable for you, you can attend the lesson at the teacher's offices. You will be provided with all relevant lesson materials.
These lessons in English are wider-ranging in their nature, and are driven towards students who have a variety of differing needs. All beginner students will expect to study enough survival English to get them through a short visit to the country, those staying on with the lesson can progress differently, depending on their individual requests and requirements. Whether you are buying property in a foreign country, married to a foreign national, planning a round-the-world trip, interested in English history and culture, or if you simply want to attain a particular level of English, this is the choice for you.
These English Lessons are intended for people who really need to learn English to help make that difference in their work. For beginners, it will be useful to learn greetings and basic business etiquette, at higher levels reading and then writing become more important. Typical students include those involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, jobseekers in multinational companies where an additional language is required, and those working with international colleagues, academia and government. Even on our most basic lesson for Beginners, students should expect to end the lesson with basic Telephone English and e-mail English skills for communications as well as Survival English required for short visits to a country.
2 or more people can benefit studying English together as these English lessons are also offered to groups (Two-to-One English Lesson or Small Group In-Company English Lesson). Every student must have the same degree of knowledge of the language, the same business or language needs and the ability to study at the same time and place as everybody else. The booking has to be made for all students at the same time. Listen & Learn do not advocate group sessions of more than 6-8 people, though Taster English Lessons can be experienced by up to 12 people.

"I moved to New York from Cuba and had to improve my English for my new job. My teacher was really helpful, lessons were always interesting, and I just kept getting better and better through practice and study."
MemphisAs Paul Simon sang on his hit single Graceland, he believed that we'd 'all be received in Graceland' as he follows the shining Mississippi delta to Memphis, Tennessee. For those of us lucky enough to be in this Mid-South heartland already, you'll know that to be true. Memphis receives newcomers with open arms, open hearts and open minds - which is why it's a great place to learn another language. Memphis is the largest city in the state of Tennessee with a population of over 670,000. However the population of the greater Memphis metropolitan area is almost double this figure, and is second only to Nashville as the largest metropolitan area in Tennessee. These demographics translate into a great opportunity to study a new language by accessing native speaking teachers.
