"I loved the flexibility in my Oil & Gas course! I can choose the parts I want to study. In the Oil & Gas course we studied different things about geology, exploration and seismic surveying, both the practical and also the linguistic aspect too. It has been so useful!"

Combination Oil and Gas English Courses 

These courses provide a combination of 15 hours per week of General English study within a group learning environment plus a number of hours working on a 1 to 1 basis with a specialist teacher to cover the oil and gas related technical English.

You can choose the number of hours you spend each week with your specialist teacher to give you the flexibility to learn at your own pace.

General English Course

This will take place every morning from 9:15am to 12:45pm and will help you develop a strong understanding of English grammar and vocabulary and provide you with lots of opportunity to practise your listening, speaking reading and writing skills with other students. 

Technical Oil & Gas English

You will work directly with your specialist teacher in the afternoon from 13:45pm for however many hours you wish.  The subjects covered can be tailored to your needs and will include industry specific vocabulary on products and processes, health and safety as well as helping with business communication skills such as giving presentations, report writing and telephone skills.


Individual 1-to-1 English Tuition

If you prefer to learn on a 1 to 1 basis only we can tailor a course to meet your needs with a specialist Oil and Gas English teacher.

We start by completing a detailed 'needs analysis' to assess your specific requirements and then create the course based on your available time, particular subject areas and level of English proficiency. 

Studying in this way gives you complete flexibility on when you start and the amount of time you dedicate to your studies.
