In today’s global marketplace, English is increasingly the official language of business. More and more managers and decision-makers are using English to communicate with colleagues, customers and partners worldwide – a good command of English has become a key factor in employability and individual career prospects.
Is your lack of English holding you back? At Abbey Communication we can help you attain the language skills you need to do your job more confidently, effectively and successfully.
Based in the UK, we have over 25 years’ experience in English language immersion training for business. Our professional trainers have worked in many commercial and industrial fields, giving them an expert insight into our participants’ language requirements.
Learning tailored to your needs
At Abbey Communication, there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach; instead we always consider your individual needs and discuss with you which aspects of your English you would like to improve. We focus on the areas of your business life where you’re regularly required to use English: for example, in meetings and negotiations, on the phone, in conference calls and emails, when visiting clients, talking to suppliers or showing people round your site.
In this way we can tailor the language immersion training precisely to the needs of the participant. At the end of a course with us, you will have acquired practical language skills that are totally relevant to your work and career.
Language immersion training in the Cotswolds
At Abbey we believe that being able to speak English confidently and naturally in social situations is an essential part of building business relationships. Language immersion training will give you plenty of opportunities for interaction – at dinner with your host family, at lunches and breaks, on local walks and trips, and on group social evenings.
Developing your language skills in authentic settings will help to prepare you for the different business and cultural environments you will encounter at work.
Learning with Abbey is also a highly pleasurable experience! Based in the medieval hill town of Malmesbury in the southern Cotswolds, participants can enjoy a more tranquil setting for learning away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
