The CTH Level 2 Diploma in English Communication Skills is designed to prepare candidates who wish to study for the CTH Management Programme qualifications and who need additional, subject specific English language training.

Level 2 Diploma in English Communication Skills (Incorporating Level 1 Diploma in English)

The course aims to raise the candidates’ use of English to Upper Intermediate level (CEFR – Independent User – Level B2). 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 programme is also available sub-divided into two levels, with minimum Guided Learning Hours of 150 for Level 1 and 300 for Level 2. Please enquire for further details.

The CTH English Language Courses 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.

Key Benefits

  • Exams ‘anytime’.
  • Results in 4 weeks.
  • UK, professional English Language Certificate.
  • Set and marked by CTH.
