Business English



Burlington School has an excellent reputation for delivering courses in Professional English, and we provide training to companies and individuals from all over the world. Our Business English courses are specially designed to meet the needs of the modern working environment. Our Business English courses are designed for people who want to improve their English in a business or corporate context. They are suitable for experienced professionals, people preparing for their first job in an English-speaking environment, students pre-paring for business-related courses and people who want to improve their career prospects. 



All our lessons give students the opportunity to learn and use English in realistic situations, and our teachers give regular homework to help them practice.  The classes focus on all aspects of the language in a professional context, including grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, speaking, listening, reading and writing. Students can add to these lessons in the elective classes. These classes build on the work covered in the main classes, focussing on communication and practical workplace skills.

Skills covered in the classes include:

  • Formal and informal discussions with colleagues
  • Talking with confidence on the telephone
  • Writing accurate, natural reports, letters and emails
  • Studying specialist vocabulary

In addition, students work on projects, which can be related to their job or based on work within their classes. Students are given support and assistance to research subjects in English, and they then use this research to give presentations, write reports or hold negotiations and meetings in the school. There are regular progress tests and tutorials, which helps the teachers identify students’ strengths and weakness, and allows the students to check their progress in English. 


Students who successfully complete our General Business English course…

  • Are more confident in their use of English.
  • Are better able to communicate effectively and spontaneously with others in the workplace.
  • Are able to work and socialise in a cross-cultural environment.
  • Can participate in discussions relating to working in an international environment.

It is a good idea for students to take an internationally-recognised examination to prove their language skills to employers or academic institutions.
