Exam Preparation courses

An official language certificate is a key asset. Its advantages include standing out from the crowd in a sea of job applicants, enabling you to get a fulfilling job at an international company or being able to opt out of the language test to enter university abroad. Our ESL partner schools have plenty of experience in preparing students to obtain official language certificates. Among their course selection, you can choose specific exam preparation courses to give you all the confidence you need on the big day.

Blended Learning

More and more students are finding in blended learning the perfect approach towards their language learning. The reason is simple: doing an online course is a fantastic way to warm up before your departure so you’re extra prepared for the experience. Likewise, choosing to do an online course after your on-site studies will guarantee you keep up all of your newly-acquired skills!

General courses

It’s a fact: there’s no more efficient way to learn a language than using it and being exposed to it in different contexts every day over a length of time. This is precisely what our general courses offer you – the opportunity to receive outstanding language lessons as well as endless opportunities to put your new skills into practice. And that’s how you cement knowledge!

esl 30 course hero

Courses for 30+

These courses offer a more mature study environment than a standard adult language course (which is available to anyone aged 30 or over). If you need English mainly for the less formal areas of professional life, as opposed to for a specific professional goal, this course is a great fit.

esl work experience course hero

Work & Study

These programmes combine a general language course with an internship, a paid job or a volunteering programme. Putting your language skills to the test in a real-world situation is priceless, and you’ll be amazed at how much your fluency improves as a result!

esl private course hero

Private language courses

For some people, a language course in a group may not be the best option for learning a language. We have a solution that offers personalised tuition in a unique setting: immersion language courses in a one-on-one environment. This course type matches learners with an experienced language teacher in the country of their choice. The result? A personalised learning experience that delivers the fastest possible language progress.

Our students often ask:

What kind of job opportunities can ESL help me find?

ESL can assist you with finding an unpaid internship or volunteer work, starting after you’ve finished your language course. We’ll match you to an internship or volunteering opportunity that fits your skills, language level, and interests, where you’ll have the chance to put your language skills to use and learn about work culture in a new country.

How advanced should my language skills be for a professional language course?

Our business language courses are offered at all levels, from beginner to advanced, and we can help you find the right group for your level. If you are unsure which language level you are currently at, you can also take a language placement test with us.

What other skills will I develop on a professional language course?

As well as testing you in the four main language skills (reading, writing, speaking, listening), on a business language course, you will explore additional soft skills specific to professional life. For example, you’ll learn how to communicate in a business context, and deal with additional skills in your chosen language such as correspondence, technical vocabulary, and industry-specific concepts.
