Our full-time Business English course consists of General English in the mornings and targeted Business English in the afternoons. This is usually taught on a one-to-one basis or in small groups of 2-3 students*.

We offer a variety of Business English modules for students from Elementary (A1) to Proficiency (C2), including:

  • Business communication (telephoning, letter writing and emailing, upselling, diplomatic language)
  • Logistics and business travelling
  • Conference English
  • Customer Service
  • Sales
  • Negotiation in Business
  • Problem solving
  • Project design and assessment
  • Presentations
  • Report writing
  • Interviews

Higher level students can enrol on a BEC test preparation course. One of our ad hoc providers of Business English has an MBA.

All students receive a certificate at the end of their course.

Maximum class size: 15

* Exact number of hours subject to number of students enrolled on the course:
- 25 hours per week if group tuition consisting of 2+ students, i.e. 15 hours per week of General English classes plus 10 hours per week of targeted Business English.
- 20 hours per week if there are fewer than two students to form a group and one-to-one tuition is involved, i.e. 15 hours per week of General English classes plus 5 hours per week of one-to-one tuition in targeted Business English.

“In my view, Oxford Language Centre is a great school where you can learn in a friendly atmosphere. Our teachers help me to develop my skills as a writer, and they helped me in my work. I have made friends from different countries and cultures, and this is very enriching too. If I had the opportunity in the future, I would love to come back to Oxford again for a longer time period.”
