Services for individual consumers

Services for individuals

LSA Lingua specializes in English for General Purposes (EGP), English for Academic Purposes, and English for Specific Purposes (ESP). The difference pertains to your objectives, contextual, and situational communicative environment.

Are you looking to increase your general proficiency in English? Or would you rather improve on specific skills? Whatever your objectives or initial questions, we offer our one-to-one coaching services and group courses both professionally and flexibly.

We also ensure that group-sizes are smaller so that you will get everything you could possibly need to start communicating more effectively in English anywhere.

Perhaps equally important, LSA Lingua can do so at competitive rates due to having lower-overhead costs compared to educational institutions and other providers of educational services even though these may receive government funding.

We specifically offer:

  • Academic English, i.e. English for Academic Purposes (EAP),
  • English for Occupational and Professional Purposes, like Business English training services that help develop specific skills,
  • International Business Communication courses,
  • General English, for example, Cambridge ESOL Exam training courses.

These types of training services can take place in the following modalities:

  • in-person (i.e. face-to-face) on location – for example on the job,
  • online through a combination of a conferencing system, e-mail and our LMS,
  • hybrid services which will partially take place online combined with in-person sessions for your convenience; this modality is ideal for writing courses.

Please note that due to Covid 19, all services are offered online until further notice.

What can you expect in terms of approach?

Our approach is:

  1. highly specialized and personalized, as it is tailored to what you require.
  2. effective. Its aim is to establish having improved skills and increased self-confidence. In each process, the following aspects are included: an online placement test and communicative output assessments, establishing course objectives and learning outcomes upfront, and continuous process-evaluation including formative testing methods.  Finally, you’ll acquire learning development strategies to use on the job or any other place of your choosing to ensure that you’ll be able to carry out tasks autonomously after the course has been completed.
