Experience and knowledge for a top quality professional training course!

Just steps away from the high street and close to the seafront, our partner school is located in a modern building with 55 well-equipped classrooms in the centre of Portsmouth. Language Specialists International Portsmouth has built a solid reputation in professional language training and is one of the best language training centres in Britain.

The school offers a wide range of intensive English courses, including General English and Business Communication courses. The latter are available in a number of interdisciplinary areas (project management, tourism, secretarial work, PR, import-export, etc.) and targeted areas (engineering, automotive industry, HR, aeronautics, insurance, pharmaceuticals etc.).

Whether you choose to take One to One lessons, group lessons or a combination of the two, you will benefit from language training adapted to your needs as well as professional training specific to your field of activity. By working on case studies and role plays you will consolidate your written and oral communication skills and develop expertise and practical knowledge to help you in your career.

If you’re a golf enthusiast, LSI also provides packages including golf lessons with a golf companion so you can brush up your swing on the local golf course while enjoying quality Business language training. Dates and prices on request.

Before and after class you can use your free time to continue working on your language skills in the school’s Study Centre. There yo will find a library with Internet connection where a member of the school can give you advice regarding extra study materials. You can also have lunch with a teacher and practise your English in a more relaxed and informal context.

In the course centre, you can chill out in the “executive” lounge with its sea view or in the relaxation area with snooker table, table tennis table and Wi-Fi access. Have a bite to eat with the other executives from the whole world in the school’s friendly cafeteria or pop down to the building’s ground floor for some tasty treats at the Café Parisien.
