Join our English professionalization classes and learn English fast. In each class students practice all four language skills – reading, writing, speaking and listening. We provide a clear daily structure and contained vocabulary to ensure students progress quickly towards becoming safe, efficient, and productive employees.

In these courses students work on:

* speaking & pronunciation
* listening & grammar
* reading & vocabulary
* writing & note-taking

Professional English

The beginner program in Professional English (levels 1-3) focuses on safety. Students learn to use and understand the present, past and future tenses along with basic vocabulary.

By the time students complete the beginner level, they should be able to hold simple conversations about the things around them. They should be able to follow simple directions and instructions safely. They should be able to understand the main idea in workplace conversations.

Students should expect to spend about 75 hours in the classroom and another 60 completing homework.

Professional English

At the intermediate level (levels 4-6) students learn their perfect tenses, a broader vocabulary, and how to manipulate a growing range of structures.

By the time students complete the intermediate program, they should feel confident in their ability to understand the conversations around them at a much more detailed level. They should feel confident in their ability to deal with emergency situations and concerns they may have with regard to the workplace.

Students should expect to spend about 75 hours in the classroom and another 60 completing homework.

Professional English

In the Advanced Professional English Program (levels 7-9), students continue to build their vocabulary and manipulate a range of more complex structures.

By the time they complete the advanced program, they should feel very confident about their ability to understand and participate in discussions about a range of subjects.

At the advanced level, students should expect to spend 75 hours in the classroom and another 60 completing homework.

Professional English

In the Academic Professional English Program (levels 10-12), students focus on increasing their language efficiency as they learn the more formal structures required by universities and colleges.

By the time they complete the Academic program students should have the language skills necessary to prepare and facilitate presentations, supervise and manage peers, communicate in clear, concise English – both written and spoken.
