THIS COURSE FOR “THE INTERNATIONAL CERTIFICATE OF ORAL COMPETENCY” IS UNIQUE IN THE WORLD TODAY. THE MAIN FOCUS IS BEING ABLE TO SPEAK AND UNDERSTAND THE SPOKEN WORD. THIS IS WHAT REALLY COUNTS.
THIS IS WORTH MUCH MORE THAN A DEGREE IN LANGUAGES.

MOST PEOPLE THAT OBTAIN A LANGUAGE DEGREE ARE LIGHT YEARS AWAY FROM COMMUNICATING COMPETENTLY IN THAT LANGUAGE, SIMPLY BECAUSE ACADEMIC LANGUAGE LEARNING IS GEARED TO THE WRITTEN WORD AND NOT THE SPOKEN WORD.
A REVOLUTION IN LANGUAGE ACQUISITION IS NOW TAKING PLACE.

LEARN TO SPEAK 2 OR 3 LANGUAGES COMPETENTLY IN ½ HALF THE TIME IT TAKES TO GET A UNIVERSITY DEGREE:    IN HALF THE PERIOD THAT IT TAKES TO OBTAIN A UNIVERSITY DEGREE IN A EUROPEAN OR AFRICAN LANGUAGE YOU CAN NOW LEARN TO SPEAK 2 OR 3 LANGUAGES COMPETENTLY – SO COMPETENTLY THAT YOU ARE ON THE THRESHOLD OF EVEN BECOMING AN INTERPRETER IN THOSE LANGUAGES.
THIS CAN BE DONE THROUGH “HOME STUDY” OR A COMBINATION OF “LIVE LESSONS” AND “HOME STUDY” WITH SOME OF THE MOST EXCITING MATERIALS ON CD EVER RECORDED.
THE COURSES ARE DESIGNED BY INTERNATIONAL LINGUIST IN 10 LANGUAGES BRIAN M NORBURY.

Minimum requirements:
If you are a complete beginner: 150 – 200 HOURS OF TUITION PER LANGUAGE.
Once you’ve completed 200 hours we then give you a written guarantee that you will be orally competent in the language.

But you can save a lot of money if you practise with your CD’S AND MANUALS and pass the weekly oral test.
Oral testing takes place on a weekly basis throughout the course so that everything does not depend on one final exam

Duration & Structure:
There should be at least 2 X 2 hours per week for any course. If we come to your premises in the city bowl then there will be no additional travel cost. The course consists of the following modules:

Beginners course: 18-24 hours
Bridging course: 18-24 hours
Lower Intermediate course: 18-24 hours
Higher Intermediate course: 18-24 hours
Advanced Courses (3 Courses): 50-100 hours.

The first three courses are general courses. Specialization takes place after this. For example, one can specialize in travel and tourism, business or other courses which can be specially designed for companies and individuals who are doing the course, depending on your area of work / interest.

All courses will include manuals and CD’s or CD Rom courses which are back-ups to the live lessons. If a student signs up for the full course, all materials are included in the cost of the course.
