General or Business English are offered to professionals and private individuals wishing to improve their English for personal and/or professional reasons, allowing them to be more confident and fluent with the language. We provide tailored one-to-one, small group language courses and workshops to help improve oral communication and writing skills. London Languages also offers English immersion programmes and relocation training programmes for businesses and private individuals.

English courses

Individual tuition allows the content, timing and pace to be adapted to the participant’s needs and availability. A small group class can also be organised when the learners share the same level, schedule and objectives.

General English Training
Following assessment of needs, participants will review grammatical concepts as well as the four skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking) to build on their existing knowledge.

Advanced English Communication Skills for Business
The focus of the lessons will be determined by individual requirements and could cover areas such as intonation improvement, exercises to eradicate habits, vocabulary for specific business areas, etc.

Most of our lessons are based at our clients' offices but they can be arranged at the participant’s home or at our premises in Westminster.

We recommend 90 minute weekly lessons, with the duration of the course based around the needs of the participant. Face-to-face lessons are the core of our training with the added flexibility of telephone and internet tutorials.

"We have used London Languages for over 10 years and have always found the quality of their tutors to be of the highest standard. Courses are tailored to the individual so that the content is relevant and interesting. The whole team are a pleasure to deal with, such that we never look anywhere else when we are seeking assistance with language tuition."

Workshops & Pronunciation courses

Specific workshops (full or half a day) can be arranged for non-native English speakers who share a common need in, for example: improving email structure, effective presentation skills, conference calls, industry/role specific language, small-talk, networking language, etc.

We usually recommend small groups of eight people to maximise workshop effectiveness.

London Languages has recently designed a new pronunciation course aimed at boosting non-native speakers’ confidence by tackling their most common errors. The programme is flexible and focuses on weak points in pronunciation to help participants converse in a more natural British English accent.

Intensive Immersion Programmes

Intensive courses are designed for participants who really need a boost to their language whether it is for personal or professional reasons. After taking an intensive immersion course with London Languages, participants feel significantly more confident using the language in professional and social situations.

Immersion programmes are designed to fit around the participant’s own schedule while in London; half or full day is available plus optional conversation lunch with a tutor.

Training can be organised for one person, a pair or a small group of colleagues with a similar level and objectives.

“I studied English at London Languages School for four months in order to take the IELTs exam.
I had an excellent preparation with the two teachers that I had, especially with Vicky who became not just my teacher but also a friend. In fact the most beautiful part of this experience was the team; I had a special relationship with them, they became my ‘English family’, and they helped me when I had a trouble or when I needed any advice. My favourite part of the school-time was the break: everyday the office team offered me biscuits, coffee and a lot of laughs. They celebrated my birthday with me. It was a great surprise! They gave me a cookbook to help me with my first experience away from home. I loved to study English in LL School and I would recommend it to all the people who want to feel at home.”
