The Bay Language Institute

Courses In addition to our standard courses, we offer the flexibility of courses developed to suit individual and company requirements and needs. The emphasis is on creating an atmosphere in which the student feels comfortable and confident, and we encourage maximum participation by students. One-on-one Business courses: these courses run on a weekly basis, and focus on general business English skills. Students are taught the various formats, conventions and skills required for effective, clear communication and spend some time putting these into practice. A lot of comprehension work is done and specific grammar problems are dealt with in detail. Conversation: also run on a weekly basis, focusing on the improvement of conversation skills and confidence levels. Topics such as globalisation, political development, the environment and conservation as well as any other topical issues are covered. A lot of emphasis is placed on reading, comprehension and paraphrasing, and some attention is paid to business skills. Grammar work is remedial, focusing on errors made during the course. Executive: executive courses focus on business English skills coaching. We work on presentation, negotiation, interviewing, social, telephone, email and writing skills, or any combination of these, depending on the student’s needs. Time is spent on the students’ own material or actual situations; solutions are developed and practiced. Special attention is paid to presentation skills. Grammar work is remedial. Groups Business Groups: the focus here is on general business English skills and their application, with a great deal of reading, comprehension, conversation and skills practice. We use role play and case studies to reinforce learning. Grammar is remedial. General English: similar to business groups, but without the intensive business focus. Personalise Package Because we know that you need to see and experience some of the beauty our country has to offer, and to indulge in your favourite activities or learn something new, we have teamed up with various service providers to offer you a variety of additional activities during your visit to SA. Not only does this add value to your trip, it gives you a unique opportunity to practice your English with people who share your interests. What a way to grow your language skills! Instruction: We offer, in conjunction with our partners, instruction in the following: golf, diving, windsurfing, kiteboarding, surfing, skydiving and sea-kayaking. Other activities: We arrange various other activities such as game viewing, hiking, canoeing, horse-riding, sandboarding, camping and angling, as well as meaningful cross-cultural experiences with people from different South African cultures. Accommodation Various levels of accommodation are available. A large number of Port Elizabeth’s Bed and Breakfasts, guest houses and hotels are located in Summerstrand. You simply tell us what level of accommodation you require, and we’ll book it for you. We also offer homestay accommodation to our students. This is particularly beneficial as students are placed with English-speaking families, allowing them to practice their language skills after formal lessons. Again, different levels are available, from bedrooms with shared bathroom facilities in a home, to semi-private rooms with en-suite bathroom facilities. We take great care to ensure that students are placed with suitable families, and that your needs are catered for. Prices are available on request.
