Agents Sought For Business Class English Program

Agents Sought For World's First Business Class English Program

An Auckland based company is currently offering a unique opportunity for migrants and people with international connections to market an innovative Kiwi developed language course back to their home countries:

Published authors, Simon Angelo and Jonathan Gunson are quietly delighted at the success of their new program in English language and business training; Business Class English(tm), currently outlined in full on their web site; Angelo has degrees in English, Business and teaching Speech. He comes from more than a decade of speech and language training experience, both in Japan and New Zealand: 'Our total dedication is in helping our clients develop fluent, flowing and neutral spoken English. This is increasingly important due to globalization, and English being the predominant language of business. We stop at nothing to ensure clients on our program learn the techniques and skills to improve their performance in the sphere of international business.'

Jonathan Gunson made publishing history with the worldwide phenomenon of "The Merlin Mystery". A book and competition taken up by Harper Collins London, the Merlin Mystery was an Amazon #1 best seller. Having previously held senior roles as an Art Director and Marketing Director in the corporate sector, Gunson believes that Academic Tours presents a unique opportunity for clients worldwide to learn the language of business in an intensive and socialized way: 'Real learning is not just about sitting in a classroom and absorbing what a teacher says. Not when you want to learn to speak English naturally and develop skills to do business all over the world. That's why at Academic Tours, not only do we intensively train our clients, we tour with them throughout New Zealand meeting the local business people in business situations.'

Angelo is author of the Internet business book 'Click & Grow Rich' which sold throughout New Zealand, Australia and was translated into Korean for the South Korean market. He believes that real learning comes from doing: 'Whether you're an English language student, a businessperson looking for the edge or an English as a second language speaker looking to perfect English on an unforgettable tour, Academic Tours has the key benefit of being memorable. Clients won't forget our intensive training or the wonderful experiences you have. That makes for real progress in learning'.

Angelo and Gunson, with the help of New Zealand based migrants, are currently marketing their Academic Tours around the world, especially to clients in Germany, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, China and throughout Europe. Their learning program comprises 14 days with a blend of small group training and educational travel at carefully selected locations in New Zealand. The program covers learning to speak English with a 'BBC Neutral' accent, developing Effective Communication in English, skills in Public Speaking and Presentations and training on the Business Class English Secrets(tm) - the 17 Secrets of Business Success in the English-speaking world. Clients need a basic ability in English, though only to a second language level. They enjoy accommodation at some of the country's best hotels and the unique opportunity to learn the language of business from leading experts.
