English to get things done

Lifestyle is designed to meet the everyday language requirements of people who need to learn English for work, travel and socialising.

As well as dealing with how people communicate at work, it also helps learners interact effectively outside of the work environment, enabling them to ‘get things done’ in a variety of situations.

  • Functional language is presented in a cross-cultural context helping learners to build successful business and social relationships and avoid communication breakdown
  • Built on a solid syllabus of grammar, vocabulary, speaking and listening, the course is straightforward and easy to use with clear learning aims
  • Regular review units recycle language throughout the course
