Your Lessons

Your intensive, one-to-one, English course begins with a detailed assessment of your level, objectives and learning style. Based upon this assessment, the course will then be designed especially for you.

All your lessons are one-to-one and tailored to your specific needs using up to date and relevant materials.

They focus simultaneously on improving:

  • general comprehension, grammar, vocabulary, listening and pronunciation.
  • oral and written communication skills in a specific field
    ( banking, sales, environment, business,…).

Our unique coaching method ensures rapid progress in your listening comprehension and speaking skills, leading to an immediate gain in your confidence to communicate in English.

The London excursion is treated separately from the excursion lessons as it would take up the whole day.

The Dialogue Weekend

You are very welcome to stay in your room at Chantelle and Gregg’s for the weekend. From Hastings, you can visit nearby towns such as Brighton, Rye and Canterbury. London is 1hour 45mns by train, so it is possible do a day trip to London.

Hastings and the surrounding areas offer a great many activities, from paddle boarding, kayaking and kite surfing to golf, tennis, cliff top walks, museums, stately homes and art galleries. Hastings is also known for its rich live music scene.

      

If you wish to continue with lessons on the Saturday and Sunday, this is possible.
We offer a 4 lesson programme with a social lunch from 9.30am until 2pm.

We can also offer you an extended Walking Talking lesson on the Saturday, to a place of interest of your choice. This would take up the best part of the day.

If you would like to stay in London for the weekend, we can help you find a nice hotel or B & B. We can recommend a very nice and reasonably priced hotel in the Bloomsbury area, which, you may know, is in the heart of Central London.

Meals and Self-Study Time

At Dialogue UK we believe that your one to one, personalised course continues outside of your lessons too.

The Alexandra Park, which dates back to the Victorian era, boasts the most variety of trees in the whole of Europe and is literally on our doorstep. It’s a wonderful place to stretch your legs and take in some fresh air during your breaks.

We welcome a maximum of three students a week to ensure complete immersion and a personal touch at all times.

A teacher will always be accompanying you during your breaks and meals times so that you can continue to practice your English in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

You will receive written and oral exercises, targeted to your specific needs, everyday, for your self-study time. This is essential in consolidating and activating what you have learned in your lessons.

We believe that good food is essential for good learning and we pride ourselves on our preparation of delicious and healthy meals for our students.

After Your Stay

The end of your English immersion is not the end of your intensive English course. You will leave with:

  • Your personal course notes and CD, so that you can continue to revise and fully assimilate all your course material.
  • A whole new approach to learning, and an exciting set of learning tools and strategies.
