Travel

Travel and culture

One of the best ways to develop language skills is to spend some time in a country where the language is spoken. For many years now I have been organizing culture trips to English speaking countries.

Besides many trips to London, I have also hosted some great trips to Portsmouth, the Isle of Wight, Canterbury, Cornwall, Wales, The Yorkshire Dales, Scotland and Ireland.

More than just a language trip!

Every trip is designed to take visitors to places off the beaten track in order to experience much more than what the guidebooks have to offer. I prefer to keep the size of the group very small and arrange for us to stay in interesting locations full of charm and character.

Translations

Translations

Professional translations by Paul WilkinsonI have been involved in translations for many leading companies and institutions in the region for several years.

Some of the larger projects I have worked on include publications for the Finnish Ministry of Trade and Industry, Vaasa City, Vaasa University, the Fisheries Institute and Åbo Academy.

No translation is ever too small or too large to deal with. Whether your requirement is for a complete translation from start to finish or to simply polish-up a draft made earlier, help is at hand.

In order to guarantee that the translations delivered to you are as accurate as possible, quality checks are made at different points during the translation process. Before delivery, I personally ensure that every translation is thoroughly checked by a native speaker for accuracy. And because I know you have tight deadlines, I keep to mine.


Please contact me if you would like to receive a no obligation offer on your next translation.

Language courses

Corporate language training

Although staff may read and write English on a daily basis, it is through speaking and listening that pronunciation and fluency really develop. As with any skill, it is only through applied practice that proficiency becomes available on demand.

Language training is tailormadeIn-house company language training is a cost-effective way of maintaining and developing professional communication skills. The top firms in Finland regularly hold such training for their management and staff.

Participants typically meet for 1.5 hour sessions on a weekly basis or as part of an intensive course. Under my guidance, students are actively encouraged to practise new vocabulary by taking part in controlled discussions surrounding the latest developments within their professional fields and talking about the important news topics of the day.

If requested, cross cultural aspects can also be brought into the curriculum. The training is given either on a one to one basis or in a small group. The maximum group size is never more than 10 to allow everyone to have an active role in the training session.

Training is always tailor-made to suit the requirements of the company. If you would like to know more about the training opportunities available for your company, do not hesitate to contact me.

Open courses for smaller companies

Each year, a limited number of open courses are run for smaller companies to participate. Please ask about the latest courses in your area.
