Course description

Globally Engaged Professionals: Intensive Language courses

Refresh and develop your foreign language skills on an intensive immersion course to enable you to do business effectively in an international context. Learn to build rapport, strengthen relationships and facilitate international communication: set yourself apart and express yourself as a globally engaged professional. We deliver this programme for those wishing to advance their Arabic, French, German, Russian and Spanish language.

Suitability - Who should attend?

The course is designed for those who use language as a tool in their professional lives and would benefit from refreshing or upgrading their language skills in a positive, supportive environment without going to a country of studied language and leaving the UK. You may have a "rusty" language qualification from school or university or have spent significant time speaking the language in the past, however, may lack the skills to use the language confidently in a professional setting. The minimum level of language knowledge is B1 (CERF) or equivalent.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

The course has been specifically designed to allow you to: 

  • improve your language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing); 
  • develop your information-handling skills in Arabic through a range of communicative tasks;
  • expand your vocabulary in specific thematic areas; 
  • improve specific grammatical areas; 
  • immerse yourself in the language and culture and;
  • network with others.

The final level attained will depend on your entry language standard and the level of engagement with the pre-course tasks.

Training content

Our Language Courses for Globally-Engaged Professionals will provide you with a systematic and intensive language enhancement in all four language skills; listening, speaking, reading and writing. The course is delivered in 3 phases through blended learning consisting of a 4-week online pre course phase, a 3.5 day workshop and an optional 4-week post course phase.

To provide you with strategies to improve your general linguistic competence quickly and enhance your professional performance the course has been structured around themes that will increase in complexity over the residential. 

Expenses

The cost of each intensive language course is £1,200 +VAT per participant.
