Established in 1992, Abbey Communication is a language training centre in the west of England that specialises in teaching Business English to international executives. In addition to top quality professional tuition at our well-equipped premises, we offer participants an authentic learning experience in a friendly and relaxed small-town environment.
You can enrol for a full English language immersion course at Abbey for a week or longer. During your stay, we recommend accommodation with one of our carefully selected hosts to enhance your immersion learning experience. Our hosts provide a very high standard of comfort, meals and attention, supporting your learning with daily conversation practice.
We are centrally placed in the High Street, allowing easy access to shops, banks, pubs, cafés, post office, tourist information centre, doctor, library, museum and sports facilities. Our training centre facilities include multimedia, wireless internet access, audio and video materials, quiet study rooms and a business and English language library.
An idyllic location for learning
Abbey is based in the medieval hill town of Malmesbury in the southern Cotswolds, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. Historically, Malmesbury was a centre for learning focused on and around Malmesbury Abbey, which was founded as a Benedictine monastery in the 7th century and rebuilt in its present form in 1180. Containing the tomb of England’s first King and boasting a stunning Norman entrance porch and scenic ruins, the Abbey is one of the area’s most popular tourist attractions.
Training courses that work for you
All our English language immersion training courses develop your ability to take part effectively in business discussions, meetings, presentations, negotiations, telephone and conference calls. We’ll help you to exchange e-mails and reports more professionally; feel more at ease in social conversation; and be more confident when discussing yourself, your work, your company or organisation, and the business world in general.
If your schedule or the demands of your job prevent you from visiting the UK, we are able to offer convenient online training courses that you can access from your home or office via software systems such as Skype. These courses can also be a perfect ‘refresher’ follow-up to your immersion course. Our In-house Training option provides another cost-effective alternative to attending a full immersion course at Abbey.
For non-native speakers already resident or working in the UK, we offer a range of useful English for… workshops and courses at our Malmesbury training centre. These are specific workshops designed to enhance your skills in familiar business areas, such as conducting meetings, making phone calls and delivering presentations.
