One-to-one General/Business

English Course in Cork

The language classes we offer will let you get off to a flying start with your English skills and then carry on steadily progressing.

Following a general English course you will feel relaxed about the idea of going to where the tongue is spoken. You will have the solid foundations you need to feel comfortable while you speak it. You will learn the all important business etiquette as part of our Business English courses. This is essential to avoid making costly or embarrassing mistakes on work trips abroad.


Our English courses would not be fixed to a specific curriculum, however. You know the specifics of what you will need from your new language, and all you need do is tell your teacher. Perhaps if you are taking a Business course, you may want to focus more on English telephone or email skills, or a specific vocabulary for your line of work. While a General course will tend to concentrate on the basics of the language you can ask for it to include whatever you feel will be important to your future plans.


There is not just one specific type of career which benefits from Business courses. Many different types of worker can give their prospects a boost this way. . General courses in English suit those hoping to emigrate to foreign shores, people with a view to travel to countries where English is the vernacular tongue, those with a keen interest in English culture and language, and people with foreign spouses.


You have the option to participate in a free language consultation before your course begins. This short consultation, usually over the phone, will reveal the work situations you will find yourself in and the terminology you will need to know in order for us to better design your course. This information, in addition to details regarding your preferred methods of learning, will be used to understand your specific requirements, work demands, and the language goals you wish to achieve from your course.

Info about Cork


The city of Cork and its surrounding area is home to around 300,000 people, and is the second largest city in the Republic of Ireland. Often seen as something of a 'rebel' county, native Cork residents have their own distinctive accent, dialect and vocabulary, tending to be higher in pitch than most Irish accents; and often compared with Liverpudlian accents due to the long-standing rate of immigration to Liverpool from Cork.

Home of the Blarney Stone, Cork is a terrific place to pick up a new language, having long stood as a centre for immigration in the region - around 20% of the city's population was born outside Ireland. This cultural diversity means more native speakers of other languages in the region, giving plenty of reasons to study a new tongue.

You simply arrange the time and place for your classes to take place (classes can be 1-to-1 or taught to a group), and all relevant texts and worksheets are provided for you.
