On-line English language school
Englishtown has now come to the Middle East following the signing of a new partnership agreement with Gulf Business Machines (GBM). The Web solution enables the end user to combine self-study learning and teacher-led instruction.

"Englishtown combines self-study programmes with native English-speaking teachers who, through on-line voice chats, provide and lead live classes and writing workshops 24 hours a day, 7 days a week," said Shawki Hussain, director of human resources and communications, GBM.

Anders Sjöman, Englishtown’s programme director, will visit Bahrain later this month to promote the solution in the region with GBM. "Our interactive media teaches reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. Then, in our teacher-led online speaking lessons, students practice communication – which is the ultimate goal of all language training,“ said Sjöman.

While students can study on their own and at their own pace, they can also communicate in real time with teachers in on-line classrooms. Those who complete Englishtown’s personalised curricula are awarded an official US university-certified diploma. Curriculum includes business and industry-specific courses as well as content from Harvard Business School Publishing.
