Is an intensive course right for me?

  • Do you have a B1 level of English or higher?
  • Do you need to improve over a very short period of time?
  • Do you have specific business skills you need to improve?

If you have answered yes, then a 1-1 intensive course is the right way forward. It will build your confidence, credibility and English ability within a 1 or 2 week period.

Dialogue’s intensive courses are effective, focused and engaging. They are not a holiday from work: you’ll need to do assignments and will be constantly pushed outside your comfort zone in English, but encouraged and supported at all times so you feel at ease.

How Dialogue’s Intensive English Courses work 

You’ll have 32 hours of contact time with your trainers: studying, researching, practising, and executing the clearly pre-defined outcomes and objectives of your course. 

You’ll learn and develop your English inside the classroom and outside it, through task-based activities and extra-curricular trips to places such as state-of-the-art factories, historical cities or even a football club.  

As it’s 1-1 training (and occasionally you will have 2 trainers) you get the individual attention you need to make the rapid progress we promise. 

Whether you choose a 1 or 2 week UK intensive English course, we highly recommend a residential option to make the most of your time here: you’ll have chance to practise your English in a different situation and absorb yet more British culture as you eat with your family and their friends. If you prefer some independence, we can also organise hotel accommodation. 

Finally, we offer extra modules to suit your personal interests such as golfing days, theatre visits or mountain biking in Wales. It is important to immerse yourself in order to obtain maximum benefit from your time on the course.

Dialogue provided a first class intensive English language training service, which involved real tailoring to our business terminology & industry specific terms which added a significant return on investment.  The pre-travel contact and airport transfers arranged by their team meant a seamless and stress free experience for our employee and a genuine personal service we haven’t had from other providers, or online resources.  I would highly recommend Dialogue for any language services

My intensive course’s 3 strengths were the host family, the importance of oral discussion and the availability of the teachers. The teachers were clear, patient, encouraging, professional, interesting and humorous.
