If total immersion is not quite your ‘cup of tea’, why not combine 15 hours of lessons in the trainer’s home with 15 hours of intensive language training in a mini-group at a prestigious business school in the Canterbury area.

You combine the proven advantages of immersion with the intercultural awareness that working with participants from other countries brings.

One to one in the morning allows you to focus on the particular skills you need to develop. In the afternoon put this into practice with other non native speakers from different backgrounds. Discuss negotiating, evaluate different presentations and learn the art of communicating effectively with different cultures.

Based on 30 contact hours tuiition plus unlimited social practice with your host teacher and family plus a drink at the end of the afternoon with your group, this is another very effective sotution to fast progress in a minimum amount of time.
