English for Business Studies Teachers

English for Business Studies Teachers – ‘Enseignement DNL’ – CLIL

Course Requested 3-7 June 2019 – Places still available

Course Overview

The English for Business Studies course is aimed at teachers of business studies, economics, accounting and finance or politics who wish to improve their English to discuss or teach their subject. The course runs for 25 hours per week in the UNESCO world heritage city of Bath, UK and is delivered in a comfortable central location that provides free wi-fi and refreshments. It is eligible for  KA1 Erasmus staff mobility funding. 

On Request Dates

We invite teachers to request course dates as early as possible. 

We realise that there is concern over the UK’s ongoing ability to participate in the Erasmus scheme after March 29 2019 and we will update any applicants as soon as we can confirm one way or another. Please do not book flights beyond that date until our Brexit status is confirmed. That will hopefully be very soon!

Group Course

With a minimum of two teachers we will open up a fixed-date group course at the group participant rate. If you need a group course but can only send one teacher, we recommend contacting us several months (4-6) in advance and being as flexible as possible with your dates.

Course Content

The exact course content is based on an initial needs analysis and refined through discussion with you before the course.

Previous applications show that our participants’ course aims can be quite diverse so it is important for you to give us as much information as possible about your aims early on in the application process, particularly if you would like us to open up a group course date.


EMB provides a course certificate detailing course content and hours studied.

Cultural Visits

EMB can help participants to plan and book evening and weekend cultural activities to enhance their cultural experience and promote the use of English outside the classroom.

Stay with one of our friendly host families to give you the ‘total immersion’ experience! A host family stay guarantees you an authentic taste of Bath life and provides the opportunity for conversation and friendship building.  

Our host families are couples or single people who generally do not have children living at home. They live within a 30-minute walk of the course venue. Our host family charge including breakfast and dinner is £340 / €400 for 5 to 7 nights. It is important to book early to guarantee a host family.

“My accommodation was great. Close to the centre of town, lovely home, food was tasty and my hostess was very nice.” Kaie S, Estonia

Over the summer holiday period we hope to provide families at a reduced fee of €350 based on distance to the course, amenities, etc.

Alternatively, we can recommend web links to bed and breakfast, hotel, apartment or hostel.
