One-to-one General/Business

English Course in Cork

The fact that our language courses are tailor made for the students means that it doesn't matter what your reasons for learning English are.

General English courses will let you engage in polite and interesting conversations with native English speakers. They are ideal for preparing you for short visits to countries where English is spoken. With a Business course in English you will find that new doors open for you in your career. It could lead to some very interesting times ahead at work.


What you shouldn't forget is that the lessons will be planned around what you ask for. If you want English email and telephone skills then these will be covered in your personal curriculum regardless of whether you are learning for business purposes or personal ones. A client who wants their General lessons to focus on a particular area of interest just needs to advise the teacher during their first lesson or at any time during the course.


Typical learners who choose our Business courses are import/export professionals, agents for multi-national companies, and those involved with foreign governments and universities. General courses cater mostly to those who wish to learn English for short trips to (or through) a country where it is widely spoken; as well as those who wish to pass a specific English exam, people who want to buy a home abroad, and people marrying into a English family.


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.

Info about English


English can often appear to be something of a mystery to a non-native speaker, with its baffling grammar and spelling regulations due to the age of the tongue as well as the various outside languages that influenced its evolution. However, it need not remain a mystery, as Language Trainers can soon have you confidently speaking English, whatever your needs. We have a host of fully-trained native English teachers who can meet to teach you (or your group, if there are several of you) at a time and place of your choosing, providing all necessary teaching materials for you. The content of the course will reflect what you want to get from the English language, and by working both during and outside of timetabled classes, you'll wonder how you were ever confused.
