Fully tailored to your specific needs.

With global connectivity making business communication more important than it has ever been, now is the time to sharpen your business English. Whether you need to learn the finer details of business English for a current position, or need it to find a more attractive job in your chosen field, it is important that you add this particular skill to your CV.

To this end, you need a language course that will teach you the important aspects of business English in relation to your specific needs, and put you in the capable hands of experienced language trainers. We believe we have such a course.

We are exceptionally committed to finding you a tutor that is right for your needs. For this reason, we send you a profile on your tutor prior to the commencement of your course. This profile contains information on your tutor’s educational background and teaching experience.

The Communicative Approach to Business English

If your past, scholastic experiences of learning English were uninspiring, you’ll be happy to hear that we don’t adopt traditional teaching methods. That is to say, we have refined our course to ensure that your learning experience will be as fun and enjoyable as it is educational and practical.

Part of this method is based on the communicative approach, which is a technique whereby your learning will be conducted almost entirely in English. This serves to speed up your grasp on business English, putting you in the perfect position to use English confidently in both social and business situations.

You have a choice of either a 1:1 or group sessions. Most of our clients use 1:1, however the group sessions can also be of good value.

About English

English is a West Germanic language that arose in the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms of England and spread into what was to become south-east Scotland under the influence of the Anglian medieval kingdom of Northumbria. Following the economic, political, military, scientific, cultural, and colonial influence of Great Britain and the United Kingdom from the 18th century, via the British Empire, and of the United States since the mid-20th century, it has been widely dispersed around the world, become the leading language of international discourse, and has acquired use as lingua franca in many regions. It is widely learned as a second language and used as an official language of the European Union and many Commonwealth countries, as well as in many world organizations. It is the third most natively spoken language in the world, after Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.

About Basildon

Basildon, with its close proximity to London, is a commuter hot-spot. It is located far enough away from central London that property prices are not drastically inflated, yet close enough that the trip into London can be made in well under an hour.

This commuter-friendliness means that Basildon is an important part of big-city business in the United Kingdom. But, it is not just its proximity to London that makes Basildon an important town for business. The town itself is committed to increasing the potential of its local businesses through ongoing marketing.

2010 saw Basildon begin a marketing push focussed on improving the town’s business infrastructure. One of the first notable steps in this push was the addition of a Hollywood-style sign which adorns one of Basildon’s green hills.

Standing 5 feet tall, the letters recall the glamour of Los Angeles’ original icon, which gives that Californian city an undeniable draw. Through the homage Basildon pays to that landmark through its own sign, this UK town is asserting itself in a constant effort to increase its business dealings independent of neighbouring London.

Whether you intend to establish yourself within this rising business town or make the daily commute to the commercial hub that is London, you need a business English course that will ensure you are able to operate effectively at this level.

Whether you’re learning a language for the first time or are looking to develop your existing language skills, call SIMON & SIMON today on 020 7821 0999 to discuss the best language training course for you.
