ESB Awards in English for Engineers

The Dolphin Languages Engineering course is designed both for aspiring and current engineers. These classes will make the student more employable in the eyes of potential recruiters and build confidence in order for the individual to achieve career objectives. We will teach new Engineering language combined with grammar, pronunciation in an academic and luxurious environment with a results-driven teacher who will refine and perfect the student’s language skills. At the start of each lesson the teacher will outlay the objective in order for the student to recognise a tangible benefit. During the course the individual will feel genuine and recognisable improvement.


About the Award

ESB has a broad range of qualifications for adults over 16, with assessment tasks exploring a spectrum of skills. These Adult syllabuses are suitable for learners in many different educational and work place environments: schools, colleges, Higher Education, prisons or on-site at employers’ premises.

All Adult syllabuses use a common core:

  • a presentation – focused on knowledge and skills in differing contexts based on the candidate’s own experience, vocational context or personal interests
  • interactive questions and discussion
  • other tasks, depending on syllabus and level, may include workplace interpretation, telephone or interviewing skills, current affairs, debate, social interaction, etc.

Each syllabus series is designed to demonstrate and encourage progression. The skills required at each stage show increasing demands of thought, shaping, language and technique appropriate to both the context and level. Key Skill Communication and the wider key skills are signposted for all relevant programmes.

Guided learning hours are flexible to allow for entries throughout the year, individual rate of progress and context. The syllabuses can be the focus for a short course or to complement / assist delivery over 1-3 terms e.g. supporting Vocational qualifications, other Skills or English in the National Curriculum, according to level and application. Additionally they can be used alongside appropriate Business or Management courses delivered within Colleges/University or through private training providers.

The course is taught by an experienced trainer who is passionate about the English and language and Engineering. Dolphin Engineering courses cover a wide range of specialisations: mechanical, electrical, civil/structural, aeronautical, and automotive.

We take advantage of having Wi-Fi access in each classroom so as to enrich lessons, providing authentic and up-to-date materials, the Internet is also the perfect way to prepare before a course, or before meeting new students. DL traniers can use the interent to find out more about the student’s role and company in order to set appropriate contexts and ask questions and plan materials that the student will find engaging. When asking  students questions, trainers can ask in a little more detail, thereby giving students the opportunity to practise explaining their role in English.
Dolphin Languages Engineering courses are suitable for engineers and engineering technicians from any field, as they focus on generic technical English – skills and vocabulary that are relevant across a wide range of technical contexts. For example, almost all engineers need to work with technical drawings, discuss dimensions and tolerances, talk about different materials and their properties, describe the shapes of components and how they fit together, describe causes and effects, explain technical problems etc.
The language used in these common technical contexts is high-priority.
A Dolphin Language English for Engineering course will develop the communication skills and specialist English language knowledge of engineering professionals, enabling them to communicate more confidently and effectively with colleagues and customers.
The classes can cover topics common to all kinds of engineering – including civil, electrical and mechanical – such as procedures and precautions; monitoring and control; and engineering design. Authentic activities – from describing technical problems and suggesting solutions to working with drawings – make the course relevant and motivating.
