These English lessons are more general in nature and are targeted at students with a whole range of different needs. While all beginners level students can expect to cover Survival English - required for short visits to a country where English may not be spoken and/or the intention is to make good contacts with the local population, students then generally progress in different directions depending on their needs. Typical students include those buying property overseas, spouses of overseas nationals, people about to set off on that long-awaited world trip, English culture enthusiasts and those who are keen to pass a particular English examination.
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.
The English lessons are also available for 2 or more people studying together (Two-to-One English Lesson or Small Group In-Company English Lesson). All participants must have the same level, the same business or general language needs and be able to study at the same time in the same location. The booking must be made for all participants at the same time. Listen & Learn do not recommend group classes of more than 6-8 people although In-Company Taster English Lessons can be run with up to 12 people.
