Bespoke Language Courses
Tailored to your organisation's needs
After initial consultation we will create a learning program for your team. Our aim will be to increase their functional level of English in as short a time as is possible. The syllabus will be written up and will be overseen by Everest Director of Studies Dr.Anne-Marie Connolly. Teaching staff will be from Everest Language School. All Everest teachers are qualified by Cambridge University (CELTA) and have years of experience in business English tuition, general English training and exam preparation.
We look forward to talking to you about creating the perfect course for your organisation. Contact us today and we can give you an overview of the services we offer. One of our directors will then contact you in order to better understand your needs. Once we have this we will put together a provisional syllabus designed to meet your needs.
Bespoke design of Corporate English Courses
While we have worked with a variety of organisations and have worked with thousands of language learners, we understand that every group and every learner's requirements are different. We will focus on fundamentals of communicative English (pronunciation, fluency, writing, grammar, etc.) but the main focus of the classes will be based on the input from your initial consultation.
Language Level Assessment
We offer online testing to all corporate clients in order to establish an accurate understanding of the level of English of each of the participants. The test used has been designed in alignment with the The Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. Students levels will be plotted on the CEFR scale (A1-C2).
Online English Courses for your business
In addition to in-house training, we can enhance, accelerate and extend the language learning of you team by offering online training. This would be available to each participant to access on their computer or phone both in work and on the go. This online content will include video content, quizzes and tests.
"As a Professional in Education I can certify with my own experience, the high level of quality in this School. Not only because teachers are really well prepared and they have high professional standards , but also managers and support student services are one of the best practices in managing schools that I have ever known. Without any doubt I can recommend Everest Language School to anyone that really wants to improve, with quality, their English skills" - Ana Elena Schalk Quintanar PhD
