Course aims

Tourism and leisure is one of the fastest growing employment sectors in the world today. In response to the ever-growing demand for qualified English-speaking professionals, we have designed an intensive practical course in English for Tourism and Leisure Purposes (ETLP).

The course trains you to respond quickly and politely in high-pressure situations. In the tourism and leisure industries cultural sensitivity and awareness is vital and so we also work on a range of activities to help improve your awareness of important international cross-cultural issues, alongside the opportunity to practice the language skills you need in a real work situation.

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!

We offer a full range of technical support, from our audio-visual classrooms to our computer lab and the Kimberlin Library.
