Our English speakers, fully qualified to teach their native tongue, can train you and, if need be, the rest of your group at a time that is suitable to you, at your home or place of work. Sessions can take place on the day of your choosing - even weekends - and at the time you want: whether it be morning, afternoon or evening. If circumstances arise where your home or office is not convenient, the classes can be held at your trainer's office. Resources for the lesson are provided for you.
English lessons of this type are broader and are aimed towards students with a variety of requirements. While all beginner level students will cover survival English - needed for short visits to countries where English isn't widely spoken, or if you wish to 'go local'; those studying English usually go in different directions at this point, depending on what they need. Those who have benefitted from these English classes have been those investing in or buying property overseas, those married to overseas nationals, people setting off on a round-the-world trip, enthusiasts in English culture, and those enthusiastic to pass a specific exam in English.
Those who would benefit the most from these English tutorials are those who feel they need to learn English to help them out in their business lives. For starters, learning salutations and business etiquette is integral; once these have been practiced then reading and writing lessons can start. Typical studiers have been those involved in international import/export, negotiations and acquisitions, those in multinational companies requiring another language, and those working in any way with international governments and relevant administration. Just our simplest lesson for beginners will have students finishing the lessons with basic telephone and e-mail English, as well as survival English should a visit to the country be necessary.
If there are 2 or more of you with the same level of English, the same targets within the language, and be able to study at the same time and location, then you'll be happy to know that these English lessons can also be made available for Two-to-One English Lessons or Small Group In-Company English Lessons. Listen & Learn do not generally recommend classes of more than 6-8 people, although Taster lessons in English can run with up to 12 people. Bookings must be made for all participants at the same time.

TorontoWhen it comes to big, vibrant Canadian cities, it doesn't get much better than Toronto. With over 2.5 million people living there, Toronto has become the biggest city in Canada. A financial capital that is on par with New York or London in many ways, Toronto has become a global leader in banking, technology and other 21st century industries. There is also a tremendous amount of money coming in each year thanks to tourism and the success of the local sports teams, which includes hockey, basketball and professional football.
