ESL offers a wide range of options in different countries to suit your preference. Whether you would like an adventure to the other side of the world by taking your higher education in Australia or Canada or have a once-in-a-lifetime experience in Europe — the choice is yours!

Our students often ask:

What kind of job opportunities can ESL help me find?

ESL can assist you with finding an unpaid internship or volunteer work, starting after you’ve finished your language course. We’ll match you to an internship or volunteering opportunity that fits your skills, language level, and interests, where you’ll have the chance to put your language skills to use and learn about work culture in a new country.

How advanced should my language skills be for a professional language course?

Our business language courses are offered at all levels, from beginner to advanced, and we can help you find the right group for your level. If you are unsure which language level you are currently at, you can also take a language placement test with us.

What other skills will I develop on a professional language course?

As well as testing you in the four main language skills (reading, writing, speaking, listening), on a business language course, you will explore additional soft skills specific to professional life. For example, you’ll learn how to communicate in a business context, and deal with additional skills in your chosen language such as correspondence, technical vocabulary, and industry-specific concepts.
