  • Group of Students on Intensive English Course at St George International

Business English Mini Group Plus

This intensive course ( 4.5 hours per day) is a great combination of the morning Business English course (9.15-12.45) with a Communication Skills afternoon class (13.30-15.00). A popular course, it is ideal for experienced working people who want to improve their ability to communicate effectively in both their working environment and socially yet still have time to enjoy the magic of London.

What can I expect from the course?

  • The course gives you the opportunity to improve and develop your Business English skills in the morning (average class size 4) and develop your general fluency in the afternoon mini-group.

  • The morning Business group is based on an interactive approach where you participate in problem-solving tasks, case studies and business simulations and work on typical business skills such as giving presentations and telephoning.

  • Both the morning and afternoon parts of the course encourage you to fully participate in the lessons. Our well-trained and dedicated teachers ensure the classes are full of engaging and relevant topics, business in the morning and social in the afternoon.

  • The afternoon class has a strong emphasis on group work, where you work with other students  to complete tasks such as a project about living in London.

​​Please Note: You can start a Business English Mini-Group Course on any Monday

This course combines the morning Business English Mini-Group course (9.15 - 12.45) and an afternoon General English mini-group (13.30-15.00).

The mini-group in the afternoon allows the tutor to focus on the immediate needs of the students whilst improving listening and speaking skills, expanding vocabulary and developing confidence. Afternoon classroom activities range from discussions of issues and topics such as travel, film, culture and politics through to project work based around internet research.
