In online English/language courses, students have a 24/7 platform where they can work at their own pace. Normally, the platforms include listening and reading comprehension skills as well as grammar and vocabulary. In tutored online courses, writing and speaking may also be included.
The concept of an online language course should not be confused with a video-conferencing language course.
If you already have a good level of general English, you can choose to take a specialised English course (called English for special purposes or English for special purposes). In this type of course, the content focuses on the vocabulary and functions needed for a particular professional area or sector. Legal English or English for tourism professionals are examples of this type of course. There are also English courses to practise and deepen a particular area or communication skill: for example, Presentation Skills or Writing emails in English.
Specialised English courses tend to be shorter as they focus exclusively on the area or skill in question and have a specific syllabus.
Today, English is the language of communication between people of all nationalities, and it is the second most widely spoken language in the world. Thus, learning English is important for communicating with people from other countries, both professionally and privately. Mastering English also enables us to access a greater amount of information, entertainment and knowledge.
En el caso de los cursos de inglés jurídico, los docentes no solo son profesores de inglés especializados en el área legal, sino que también han estudiado Derecho y a veces siguen dedicándose a la abogacía además de a la enseñanza del idioma.
El programa completo del curso de inglés jurídico está pensado para quienes quieran abarcar todas las temáticas o bien presentarse a un examen oficial de Legal English, como el TOLES. Sin embargo, los cursos a medida pueden cernirse exclusivamente al área de desempeño de los participantes.
