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.
English lessons of this type are aimed towards those that need to learn English to aid them with their employment. For those just starting out, it is integral to learn basic greetings and business etiquette; and reading and writing can be adopted once the simple precepts are out of the way. Success has come from students who are involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, those seeking jobs in multinational companies, and those working with foreign colleagues, academia and bureaucracy. Just our most basic beginners lesson will have the student finishing the lesson with basic telephone/e-mail skills in English, as well as survival English should a short stay in the country be needed.
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.

QuebecQuebec City is the second largest city in the Canadian Province of Quebec after Montreal. The name of this town of 500,000 people is derived from the Indian word 'Kebec' meaning 'where the river narrows.' This is a fitting description, as the city rests magnificently on the shores of the Quebec River. Many of the most important historical sites in the area can be found in Quebec City, and millions of people come every year to visit the old churches and gorgeous waterfalls in the area. These visitors have made tourism one of the top industries in Quebec in recent years. The business climate in Quebec is active, with a number of Fortune 1000 companies maintaining headquarters or branch offices in the downtown area. The primary language spoken here is French, with an overwhelming 95% of the residents listing it as their native tongue. English, Chinese, Arabic and other languages are also spoken throughout Quebec. And like any major city, those who take the time to learn a new language are given more opportunities to succeed in business and communicate with all the residents who live there.
