The Best Way to Practice Professional English

It’s stressful trying to improve in English within professionally important contexts.

A better way is to take time out in a safe ‘play’ space.

That’s a place to experiment with work-related language, far away from YOUR workplace.

At Blue Noun, we have an innovative proposal combining professional coaching WITH holiday experiences.

You get a holiday full of interesting professional conversations, where making mistakes don’t cost your career.

Speak Professional English Meeting Scottish Makers

Our language school holiday concept is to introduce you to a variety of Scottish makers in their professional settings.

It will still feel like a holiday, but you’ll practice professional English skills such as presentations, listening comprehension, and asking and answering questions – with an English coach by your side. 

Language Target:

to enjoy (and be good at) professional workplace English.
