Eight Departments Covered

Essential language is our starter program, great for beginners and works on the basics of service language with the essential expressions and vocabulary staff need.

Based on functional language for service sequences, this course is designed to run as a series of self-contained modules delivered over 40 hours including testing.

After the course, successful participants will be in a position to follow all common task breakdowns and SOPs used in their work and comfortably and confidently apply a high quality of fluent service English when following these procedures with guests on a day to day basis.

Eight Departments

Two levels (courses) per department, each one 40 hours in length.
We suggest you start with level (course) one, and later at your convenience schedule course two. Each 40 hour course includes pre and post testing.

Short and Direct

10 or 15 procedures (modules) in 40 hours depending on the level.
Departments with lower English proficiency study only 10 modules, e.g. engineering and housekeeping. Front office and F&B study 15 modules in 40 hours.

Each modules consists of one or more conversations and dialogues between gusts and staff, with a breakdown of key sentences and phrases.
