About the courses

Business Centre Programmes

Crash Intensity Programme

At inlingua Cheltenham, we understand that no two clients have exactly the same needs and it is therefore impossible for two courses to be identical.

We design a new and specific programme for every one of our Crash Intensity Programme (CIP) clients in order to guarantee its relevance to your requirements.

inlingua Cheltenham will design the course to suit you.

Courses are programmed by a team of specialised trainers in conjunction with the Director of Studies. Together they will guide you and monitor your progress throughout.

The minimum length of the Crash Intensity Programme is one week. We do recommend, however, that you come for a minimum of 2 weeks to ensure the maximum return from your investment.

These courses can be directed towards your requirements at a particular time or can be a continuation of a course you are currently already following in your own country. You should always remember that any course you take in England will be more effective if you can continue some form of study when you return home.

The Crash Intensity Programme is one of the most popular courses at inlingua Cheltenham and we are pleased to welcome clients from a wide range of different client companies, from small family businesses to some of the best-known multi-national companies in the world. Our client list also includes professionals from a wide variety of backgrounds: doctors, lawyers, accountants, architects, bankers, Red Cross volunteers and politicians are just some of the types of client that take CIP courses at inlingua Cheltenham.

So whether you are looking for a general refresher, or a programme to train you for a very specialised use, you should seriously consider an intensive programme at inlingua Cheltenham.

Professional Skills Programme

For clients who need to specialise more than on a general programme, but who still want a group dynamic, we are pleased to offer our Professional Skills Programmes.

With a maximum of just 5 participants per group, you can be sure that you will receive plenty of personal attention and, at the same time, enjoy a more tailored course than is possible on courses with larger classes. While concentrating on English for Professional Purposes, using inlingua's own Accelerated Professional Programme, the course will take into account the basic language and professional requirements of all the participants.

We offer programmes of both 30 x 45 minutes per week (PSP/30) and 40 x 45 minutes per week (PSP/40). The main difference between the two courses is that the PSP/40 programme offers the possibility of participating in realistic role play situations, presentation and negotiating skills in the last two afternoon lessons.

PSP Combi, CIP Combi

The CIP Combi combines a CIP/30 programme with 10 lessons per week in a mini-group. This allows you to follow a specialised 1-1 programme and combine it with 2 lessons per day in a small group.

As your last two lessons in the day is likely to combine with other people from our PSP/40 course, it is probable that many of these mini-group lessons will include role play situations, presentations etc.

The PSP Combi combines a PSP/30 programme with 10 lessons per week of 1-1 lessons.

This is a very cost effective way to have the best of mini-group and 1-1 training. Make quick progress with your language skills in the mini-group and then concentrate on your own more specific needs in the 1-1 lessons.

Main School Programmes

Language Skills Programme

This is our main all-year-round group programme for adults. At inlingua Cheltenham we recognise that, although General English is still extremely important, General English alone no longer meets the needs of the majority of people who are learning English.

Our Language Skills Programme therefore allows you to combine General English with English for more specific purposes. The course combines General English in the morning lessons with different subjects called "options" in the afternoon lessons. Students at a pre-intermediate level or above can choose from a variety of options. Lower level students will concentrate on General English until they reach a level at which they can begin to specialise.

On the Language Skills Programme, General English can be combined with:

* Business English
* Exam preparation
* Writing skills
* Communication skills
* Study skills
* Culture
* ... and a variety of other options, depending on the needs of the students:

IELTS 20 and 30

Courses designed to cover IELTS preparation, course materials and examination practice. Students should have an pre intermediate level of language to start these courses.

About the School

inlingua Cheltenham was opened in 1990 and since then has established a strong reputation for high quality language training combined with an extremely personal service, paying particular attention to the needs of all our clients.

The school is located in two beautiful, neighbouring Regency buildings in the town centre.

The main school is a medium-sized school offering the ideal combination of quality teaching and a high degree of personal contact with all our students. It is a beautiful Regency villa built in 1796. Located just 30 metres from the High Street, it is superbly positioned for access to buses, shops, restaurants and pubs. This building is used for all adult group courses and for teacher training. It is also the main administration centre for inlingua Cheltenham.

Our Business and Professional Language Training Centre was opened in 1998 to better meet the needs of our many business and professional clients. Here you can meet business people from all over the world, including England, enjoy a training programme designed to meet your needs and at the same time, still enjoy all the extra facilities offered by the main school next door.

In spite of its central position, you could easily be forgiven for thinking that the school is out of the town centre, thanks to its beautiful garden and peaceful location.

The high standards of our courses, our teaching staff, our accommodation services and our extra-curricular activities have all been officially and objectively recognised by external bodies.

inlingua Cheltenham is accredited by the British Council for the teaching of English as a Foreign Language to Adults and is accredited under the British Government's "Investor in People" scheme.

Cheltenham itself is the ideal place for an intensive training programme in English. Situated at the foot of the Cotswold Hills, one of the most beautiful rural areas in England, west of Oxford, Cheltenham is a lovely town of some 106,000 inhabitants. In this relaxed and friendly environment you may learn in a typically English atmosphere, without the problems and stress you may experience in other busier centres more traditionally frequented by foreign students of English.

Cheltenham is also a recognised centre for the arts, with two excellent theatres, regular concerts and its own international music and literature festivals. Combine with this, the wide variety of pubs, clubs and restaurants, some of the most exclusive shopping in England and excellent sports facilities and you will find that Cheltenham offers something for all tastes.

inlingua International is the largest association of privately-owned language schools in the world. Around 300 schools in more than 22 countries on five continents are united, not only in name, but also through the high standards of their teaching materials and methods. inlingua has been, and continues to be, the first choice for literally hundreds of thousands of language learners worldwide.

Our Pedagogical Services department in Bern, Switzerland, is constantly updating and developing new teaching materials and methods for use exclusively in inlingua schools. This helps to ensure the highest possible standards and maximum continuity within all schools in the inlingua organisation.
