Online one-to-one tuition and dual methodologies will bring together use and practise of English for Specific Purposes, acquisition of practical knowledge related to your professional, academic, or social activities, and a learning experience similar to undergraduate study at the University of Oxford.

Our fee-based distance learning ESP courses include Academic-English and General-English, and English for Commerce, Economics, Energy, Engineering, Finance, HRM, Law, Petroleum Production & Processing, Marketing, and Medicine.

There is also a set of courses in English with Philosophy that covers Epistemology, Metaphysics, Ethics, Aesthetics, Logic, Politics, Sociology, and many more subjects.

Philosophy is invaluable for general problem-solving, conceptualisation, planning, realisation, teamwork, decision-making, and refining your communication and networking skills to gain a competitive advantage.

These skills are sought after by employers in commerce, manufacturing, marketing, advertising, film and television production, journalism, IT, the professions, education, and government departments. This short video explains the reasons for this:

ESP courses are divided into four modules of equal length for flexibility that allows us to meet your individual learning requirements and offer you a variety of payment options.

To start, you may enrol for a single 2-month module of four guided-study assignments, which call for a minimum of 56 hours work and study together with attendance at four 1-hour sessions of online one-to-one tuition.

After that, you will have the opportunity to continue with Module 2 or complete the full 224-hour course and twelve more 1-hour sessions of online one-to-one tuition.

A guided-study assignment includes access to interactive digital learning platforms, free online reading materials and video lectures, and 1-hour of online one-to-one tuition.

Your tutor will provide customised assignment guidelines and show you how to refine your communication and networking skills to gain a competitive advantage.

When you apply for an ESP course, you will have an opportunity to complete a free online Course Placement Test and receive our feedback and comments.

We have students in the U.S.A. and Canada, South America, the U.K., the EU, the Middle East, Africa, Russia, China, Southeast Asia, India, and the rest of the world.

Dual methodologies and online one-to-one tuition that adapts to your needs to provide you with a learning experience similar to study at the University of Oxford
