Student Name: Pilar
Occupation: Corporate Lawyer, Santander Bank, United Kingdom
Course Title: TOLES Legal English Preparation Skills Course
What were we asked to do?
Pilar is a corporate lawyer working for one of the largest banking organisations in the world. Santander Bank is based in Spain and has a significant presence in the United Kingdom, with offices in London and Milton Keynes.
Pilar asked Legal English UK to design a training programme that provided her with greater insight into English law for international lawyers as well as the vocabulary and language needed to engage with clients, colleagues and counterparts.
Pilar is also interested in taking the TOLES Test of Legal English Skills and asked our teacher to help her prepare for that as well.
How is the course succeeding?
The course takes place on Saturday mornings at a location in central London and lessons are taken one-to-one to ensure that Pilar retains complete focus and is motivated for the entire duration of the class.
How is the course designed?
The course is specially designed to maximise the time that the tutor and student have together. Each lesson is two hours in duration with a 15-minute break after one hour. In the first half, the lesson looks at law reports from recent English case law and explores the language used. There are also exercises and conversations about Legal English. In the second half, the lesson is more concentrated on TOLES test preparation and working on other areas that Pilar asks for.
The course continues and Pilar is seeking to renew her package of lessons to ensure that she progresses as a Legal English speaker and adds additional value to her career in law. She also intends to take the TOLES Test of Legal English Skills within the next several months.
Legal English UK runs lessons in the TOLES test as well as English Language for Law from our office in London as well as worldwide. For additional information, please telephone 020 3566 0145, e-mail us or fill out the form on this page.
