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 host 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 - from beginners to advanced. Presently, we are offering online classes in light of Covid-19 to our private & corporate clients. Our online programme allows you to improve your English in a structured and interactive setting without leaving your home or office. Currently, classes are taking place online on the Zoom or Skype platforms at a time that suits you. We hope to be able to offer in-house classes to our clients in the very near future.
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: grammar tenses and structures, vocabulary, idioms, phrasal verbs and then give you the opportunity to try out the new target language learned. The course is very student centric and we operate more akin to coaching - setting targets/goals, delivering the service product & meeting these targets within a set time period. All learning resources are sent to you via email or google drive including the school's own proprietary grammar handouts. These include detailed explanations of the following: grammar tenses, definite/indefinite articles, prepositions, linking words, adjectives/adverbs, relative clauses, conditional tenses, future tenses, passive tenses etc. All homework is sent via email to our clients who after completing it, send it back to the teacher for correction ahead of the following class. We pride ourselves on our excellent customer service and we are always available on WhatsApp or email for any follow-on questions or queries on issues you may have.
