A new and innovative company addressing the English Language needs of IMG doctors and nurses.
We now have three exciting products in our portfolio.
1. ‘Beyond the English Test’ E-learning Programme
We are pleased to introduce our newest product to our range.
This programme is designed to assist IMGs with their English Language acquisition with, and beyond, studying for their English exams.
This 6 week interactive programme costs £250 per student. This gives access to the programme for up to 6 month, allowing students time and flexibility to complete the course alongside of their busy schedules.
The programme is built in a modular way, with the student having to cover each module in turn to gain access to the next. All modules MUST be completed for the student to complete the programme successfully and gain pass certification.
Each week covers a new but interwoven topic.
Examples of topics covered include:
An introduction to the NHS: policies, guidelines, structures and cultures
Culture differences and expectations
Communication, interactions and consultations- Good practice; written and verbal covered
Health & Safety; including patient safety
We aim to approach each topic using the four basic literacy skills of: Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening; all tasks set for students practice these skills so as to provide opportunities to improve literacy and English Language acquisition. A glossary of ‘new’ or ‘unusual’ words is also provided for this purpose, and students are encouraged to add their own newly learnt words to this list as they study.
As research shows that language acquisition works best when a student is immersed in the new language, we also provide extra-curricular opportunities for the students to study language, art, music of the UK for enjoyment and to provide depth and breadth to their studies on a more cultural level.

Each word or phrase is defined, and is put into a sentence of context so that the user can understand its usage.
