  3. (Intensive) Business English as a Second Language
  4. Business English Conversation course
  5. Aviation English – ICAO

With our daily Grammar and Pronunciation (gp) sheets and Personalised Sentence Analysis (PSA), weekly Revision and pronunciation and personal audio recordings, students leave our programme with a greatly increased command of English grammar and the ability to express themselves confidently. (Please contact us for confirmation)

The classes are small (maximum 6), guaranteeing students personalized attention at all times. The courses are designed to ensure that each student receives the maximum training during his or her stay in Barbados, with our fully qualified, friendly and motivated team of teachers. A certificate of participation is presented to each student at the end of the course.

Accommodation comprises homestay or apartment options, which may be booked directly or through our Centre.

The infrastructure on the island is rated very highly and Barbados is considered one of the safest and most vibrant, yet relaxing, islands in the Caribbean. The bus system in Barbados is excellent and affordable, with routes spanning the entire island.

After-class activities include (among others):

  • (Scuba) diving
  • (Kite) surfing
  • Water skiing

The charm, excitement and tranquillity of this beautiful island, with its superb beaches, friendly restaurants and vibrant nightlife, are all enjoyed by our students after class and at weekends.

Students may come to the Centre, individually or in groups, independently or through one of our agencies (see website for details). The Centre is rated Five Star by the agencies and on Google.
