  • Many hospital laundries employ workers from overseas and for them the most crucial element in their general ability to work well and to live happily in Britain is their knowledge of the English language. This course aims: to teach the English the learner needs for his immediate job, and to enable him to communicate more freely about the work situation in general; to teach the English needed for simple social contact within the work place between the learner and native English-speaking workers.
