Course aims

This course gives an in-depth knowledge of the English required for a dynamic customer experience which is vital for front-line sales operatives, and to develop and motivate call centre operatives for managers.

"Just 4% of people have had a good experience when dealing with a call centre, according to a recent survey by YouGov. Over half of those asked said their biggest complaint was having to contact call centres outside the UK." - BBC news story

English study support

You will be placed in small classes, giving you plenty of direct contact with your tutors. Our qualified tutors have taught English for many years, in many different countries (China, Russia, Libya, UK and many others).

You will be well looked after by our Centre support team from the moment you arrive. You will live in a homestay, so you can experience typical British life in the UK and improve your English outside class. Or you can opt for accommodation in our high quality University Halls of residence.

The team also arranges sight seeing trips so you can enjoy all of the attractions that the UK has to offer!
