Our story to date:
Dublin Business English (DBE) was set up in 2005. We started by offering business English language training to the corporate sector in Dublin but have since diversified into a number of other product offerings: the BEC (Business English Cambridge) suite of exams, the TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication) test as well as general English exams like B2 First, C1 Advanced and IELTS.
We cater for both individual and small group classes and all levels are catered for. For corporate clients, we can go to your premises and do in-house classes at times that suit your staff. We offer face to face classes at our school premises in Donnybrook. In addition, our online programme has proved to be very popular; allowing clients to improve their English in a structured and interactive setting without leaving the home or the office.
Our philosophy is all about creating the right atmosphere where both individuals and groups can enjoy the classes; which in turn helps master the language. We build on what you already know: the grammar tenses, pronunciation, vocabulary, idioms, phrasal verbs and then give you the opportunity to try out the new target language learned. We have our own proprietary materials built up over many years.
Errors, be they structural, lexical or phonological are identified and remedied by your tutor. Error analysis is a major plank of our approach; however, we are measured in how we deal with this too - "An error must impede communication before it is considered an error that necessitates correction”.
