The 25+ Combination Course features both group and individual lessons to meet your specific needs in General English, Work-related English or English for Special Purposes (ESP).

Our 25+ Combination Course is ideal for clients who have two basic requirements:

  • To develop their all-round fluency in English
  • To have some specific English language training to meet their personal or professional needs

Your needs are always assessed prior to the commencement of the course. You can vary the intensity of your course with different combinations of group and individual tuition.

We have experience in delivering courses for clients from many different professional areas. We have been working in the corporate market for many years and as a consequence have developed several areas of expertise which we can now offer as 25+ Combination Courses with ESP. Among the specialisms that we are able to offer are:

  • English for Tourism Management
  • English in the World of Finance
  • English for Human Resource Management
  • English for Marketing
  • English for Customer Services
  • English for Journalism
  • Teacher Training: CLIL
  • Teacher Training: Language Teaching Methodology

English in Chester has excellent local contacts in many professional areas. These contacts, both at an academic and more practical level, are sometimes involved in our 25+ Combination Courses.
