Peter graduated from Gonville and Caius College, Cambridge, where he studied Natural Sciences and also acquired a Postgraduate Certificate in Education.
He joined The Language Business in 1992 after a career in the packaging industry, latterly at director level. His work for multi-national organisations involved extensive overseas travel and he has experience of using several European languages for business. Peter is a member of the advisory group for the East Midlands Regional Language Network (RLN) and has written a number of ‘how to’ guides for CILT, the National Centre for Languages.
The Language Business can provide group and one-to-one tuition in most of the European languages, in Japanese, and in English as a foreign language. Intensive courses can also be arranged. It is one of the UK's most experienced companies in the delivery of language training using the Accelerated Learning methodology.
The company has also produced an Accelerated Learning Dutch language course, which is suitable for self-study and has been sold to many individuals who wish to learn Dutch for either business or personal reasons.
The services provided by The Language Business will be of interest to all companies striving to make competence in a foreign language an integral part of their management and marketing strategy.
