Residential courses

Methodology

At Castells Immerscom we specialise in English immersion courses for professionals, businesspeople and anyone who wants to benefit from a method of learning English that’s fast, intensive, effective and fun. Our courses combine classes with leisure activities, contact with nature and business-related training.
The idea is for students to incorporate English into their daily activities, in business and any other situation, and the best way to achieve this is by fully immersing yourself in the language: 24 hours a day (lasting 2 to 5 days) in a remote setting with native speakers as your teachers who can adapt the classes and activities to your needs and priorities. Total

immersion is ensured by the classes being outside the company, in a natural, rural environment. They’re normally held at Món Sant Benet (Bages), home of the Alícia project and just one hour from Barcelona. A place where you can easily switch off from your company routine, get back in touch with nature and traditional cooking, and also enjoy other outdoor activities while still learning and practising your English.
Our system helps you acquire a good level of Business English, not only through English classes but also by eating, sleeping and breathing the language, as well as having fun.

The courses

STANDARD COURSES

  • Classes in small groups (maximum 5 people) plus self-study, combined with activities to further develop social English.
  • All activities and exercises are carried out in this small group format to give students the chance to interact, improve their oral fluency and listening comprehension and, at the same time, get to know other professionals in a learning environment.
  • The sessions include simulated negotiations, meetings, presentations and telephone conversations as well as other situations typically required in business. The work on vocabulary and grammar is also very much focused on the business world.
