Business English Academy for Adults


All English Learning Programs provided by Language Xchange Ireland are tailored to meet the needs of groups of students who wish to gain international English language experience and develop confidence speaking English in a business environment. Our Business English Academy for Adults program has been specifically designed for professionals and business people and teachers who wish to improve their Business English, increase their business terminology and potential for future employment. This program is suited to young and experienced business professionals from the age of 21 upwards.


We run courses for group bookings all year round and offer bookings each year in July for people who wish to book individually. Courses are typically up to 2 weeks in duration. However, if you or your group wish to extend you English language immersion, this course can be combined with a Voluntary Work Placement.






This program offers an opportunity to improve ‘Business English’ through our structured, multi-tiered English Learning Program structure, consisting of five core elements:

 


We believe that the very best way to gain English language skills is to be fully immersed in the language, particularly for participants who wish to become competent speaking English in a business environment. We provide a variety of programs that optimise participants' ability to learn ‘Business English’...and our Business English Academy for Adults package is one of our exciting programs offering that opportunity!


As a result of our multi-tiered structure, participants develop confidence speaking English in a business environment, expand their vocabulary and learn business terminology. A warm welcome and friendly Irish hospitality are a cornerstone of our services and a strong feature of the Business English Academy for Adults experience!
