Teach Business English

Teach Business English

Course confirmed March 11-15 – Places still available

This particular date will have a strong focus on the language in business: for telephoning, presenting, emailing, etc, as well as general improvement in English. 

Our Teach Business English course is aimed at English as a Foreign Language teachers who wish to develop or refresh their skills for teaching English to business, technical and professional employees or vocational learners. 

This twenty-five hour programme runs over five days in the UNESCO world heritage city of Bath, UK. It is delivered in a comfortable venue that provides wifi and free refreshments. It is also eligible for Erasmus funding such as KA1. 

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!
