Erasmus+ presents the opportunity to improve language skills, Professional development, gain self-confidence, independence and immerse yourself in a new culture
We look forward to welcoming you to Dorset College to share our love of language learning with you! You will develop proficiency in English that will set you on a path that will benefit your personal, academic and professional life.
Our small, intimate groups are designed to cater for all students’ needs and to ensure that everyone gets the results that they want, from general fluency in the English language to polishing off Business English skills for a job application or interview.
The focus is on the key skills of speaking, both face-to-face and by telephone or other media, listening, reading and writing. Attention will also be given to competence in grammar, lexis and pronunciation, and intercultural communication will also form an important component of the course.
While the content of each course is carefully designed and prepared, we continuously try to adapt the programme to suit the needs of each group and, more importantly, to each individual learner.
Focus will also be placed on providing relevant vocabulary for dealing with these situations, along with the necessary grammar to communicate effectively both in written and spoken forms.
