Helping Your English To Sparkle

    Define Your Goals

    At London Business English, you can master the language as it is used in the corporate world:

    • Communicate with precision
    • Hone your writing
    • Impress your colleagues and business partners
    • And, most importantly, express yourself with power and persuasion

    Few languages match English for its scope and elasticity. The rise of the internet and London’s status as a financial centre have rocketed it into the global super-language.

    We help you be clear on what you are trying to achieve and the fastest way to get on track. Perhaps it’s a 4-week refresher you need, or maybe the whole goose and trimmings.

    Develop Key Habits

    All our teachers are native speakers with postgraduate university qualifications and at least three years experience working in the business sector, often much more, and often specifically in finance.

    You are already experienced; you’ve learned lists of English idioms and pages of strange, fruity phrases.

    Most tongues come straight as an arrow by comparison – say what they mean, do what they say. But the English language grabs words and joins them up in fresh and amazing ways.

    Use The Right Terms

    What do you use English for? Presentations…Email…Meetings…Telephone…Social…Networking…
    All and more?

    Different situations require different ways of speaking or writing.

    With our reference guides and always-on-call support service, you will find guidance for polishing your English skills to a gleam.

    Never feel out of your depth again or inferior to other English speakers.

    Be confident in how the language works and use it to your best advantage. It is an essential and valuable skill.

“One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way.”

Into The Woods

  • 01. Adapt

    Part Latin, part Saxon, part French, part whatever else it can find, this language eats other languages for breakfast. Let’s feast!

  • 02. Integrate

    How to decide the appropriate response in any situation. What does the boss want? How best to pitch that client?

  • 03. Be Clear

    Idioms in English are like a large bear on a short leash chained to your favourite trousers. Cut the bear loose or befriend it, but let’s get clear.

  • 04. Excel

    Confidence in your skills is important. It helps you take chances, which are necessary in going with the flow of a powerful language, and also allows you to stop and learn, and try again when you need to.


How Does It Work?

“If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart”
