Corporate Courses

Dublin Business English has been providing business English language training for non-native professionals since 2005. We have built up a reputation for excellent service - this has been the key to our success. We have experience dealing with both small & medium sized companies as well as multinationals in a wide range of business sectors: finance/auditing, technology, hotel and leisure and the retail industry to name but a few.

Methodology: Homework is given after each class to be completed in advance of the following class when feedback and discussion of these exercises are done. This allows maximum use of class time with an emphasis on building spoken fluency and student confidence. Exercises are usually a mixture of the following: Reading and comprehension, listening to an Mp3 audio recording or watching a TED Talks video, writing a piece of text e.g. an email or an essay as well as revising grammar structures and vocabulary.

Below, I list a sample syllabus for a 1 hour class per week over a 12 week course. A revised programme would be drawn up after consulting with the HR or department managers and the student on the topics/ areas that they need.


  • Week 1: Introductions, level test feedback:
  • Week 2: Corporate Culture
  • Week 3: Management & leadership
  • Week 4: Starting up a small business
  • Week 5: Customer Service
  • Week 6: Marketing
  • Week 7: Advertising
  • Week 8: Meetings
  • Week 9: Presentations
  • Week 10: Writing: emails, reports, proposals
  • Week 11: Finance & banking
  • Week 12: Exit test & feedback.

Private individuals as well as group students are given a placement test as well as a mini- interview to accurately assess their proficiency level and their specific needs. Courses are tailored according to the students' needs and company priorities. This is a cornerstone of the school's philosophy - namely designing a tailor made course for each and every student. Group students should have similar levels and learning objectives as the programme would cover the collective needs in this case.

We can send a teacher to your company premises or we can do online classes at any time to suit your staff or even a blended approach: a combination of both online and face to face classes. Learning online complements classroom based teaching and for many students this may be a good option.

Final report: At the end of your course you will do an "exit" test. We correct and discuss your results with you in addition to giving a comprehensive feedback report. You will receive a certificate of attendance; outlining the duration of your course, and the proficiency level attained.
