Certificate in English for Hospitality and Tourism Level 1 & 2
The CTH Certificates in English for Hospitality and Tourism Levels 1 and 2 are designed to prepare candidates who wish to study for the CTH Diploma level qualifications and who need additional, subject specific English language training. There are two levels, with recommended contact hours of 120 for Level 1 and 180 for Level 2. both levels have final examinations. Level 1 takes candidates up to approximately Intermediate level. Level 2 aims to raise the candidates’ use of English to Upper Intermediate level. At this point, candidates can be expected to be able to study for the CTH Diploma qualifications and other courses available, with some confidence.
The CTH English Language qualifications are designed specifically for the International Hospitality and Tourism industries and the content spans use of English relevant to all hotel departments and restaurant staff, tour operators, resort representatives and travel agents. However, as the aim of the qualifications and the subsequent CTH Diplomas is to prepare for a career in management in hospitality and tourism, all candidates will benefit from exposure to matters outside their specific field of interest.
Excellent preparation for the CTH Diplomas
