You can literally find hundreds of different course options to choose from while organizing your language course abroad. Here at All About Languages we have narrowed down the selection to just 3 for each school. These are, by far, the most popular courses chosen by our past students.
For the sake of simplifying your booking experience we have narrowed the choices down to the following 3 courses:
General Language Courses:
The general course usually takes place in the mornings and consists of between 15 and 25 lessons per week (3 to 5 lessons per day). It leavs you plenty of free time in the afternoons to practice the language during social activities such as organized sports or cultural excursions with your classmates.
- The classes focus on the basics of the language, working on all 4 major disciplines: reading, writing, speaking and comprehension.
- The courses are a great opportunity to meet students from different cultures and countries while being immersed in the culture of the chosen country.
- There is a maximum of 10 to 15 students per class depending on the center, that way each student receives personalized attention from the teacher.
Intensive language courses:
The intensive language program focuses on the basic aspects of the chosen language (reading, writing, grammar and vocabulary) but has a higher number of weekly lessons than the general language course.
- These courses consist of between 25 to 40 hours of class per week
- They are designed to improve your linguistic knowledge as Quickly and Effectively as possible.
In the world of international business, the ability to communicate in other languages in social and business environments is essential to having a successful career.
Knowing other languages is highly valued by international companies, and people who possess some knowledge of foreign languages usually earn higher salaries than those who do not. When you enrol in a business language program you can usually combine language learning with optional subjects that focus on specific areas like finance, marketing and law.
Business language courses focus on reinforcing your abilities in various business skills from letter writing, emails, presentations and reports or practice business meetings and telephone calls.
