Intensive Business English Immersion
We use a highly communicative, student-centered approach which allows you to speak 70% or more during lessons and interact real-time with people in the local business community. Total immersion is the most effective way of developing language proficiency according to the Center for Applied Linguistics. The intensity of the immersion experience coupled with cultural exposure provides maximum growth in a minimum time frame. Our students grow one English level after 4 weeks of intensive study and real-life interaction with local people in the language and culture for 180-200 hours.

All participants receive pre-and-post program official testing and evaluation aligned with the Common European Framework (CEF) Can-do Objectives.
