English for Specific Purposes



Our English for Specific Purposes courses are designed for people who want to improve their English in the context of their profession or area of study. They are suitable for experienced professionals, people preparing for their first job in an English-speaking environment, students preparing for related courses and people who want to improve their career prospects.


We offer courses in the following:

  • English for Finance
  • English for Human Resources
  • English for Law
  • English for Marketing
  • English for Medicine
  • English for the Oil and Gas Industry
  • English for Teachers
  • English for Tourism

Because the courses are delivered to order, and the syllabus designed to meet individual and collective needs, the timetable is flexible, and the classes can be delivered to meet students’ requirements. We can offer our English for Finance courses either at Burlington School or in the student’s offices to allow them more flexibility with time.

Course Content

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 courses are designed to teach students the language skills they need for a career in their sector. 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.

Please contact the school for further information about specific courses.
