French language learning
French language learning doesn't have to be hard, painful or expensive. Sophie Sounds French (SSF) has a secret that language learners would do well to uncover. SSF has developed a style of learning that helps students of French achieve the following:
- Sound French
- Enjoy what they learn
- Learn quickly
- Remember what they learn
- Be much less confused
- Love grammar
- Read & Write French
- Study on their own, in groups or with friends
English language learning
English language learning is more universal than one might at first imagine. There are tow main areas where Sophie Sounds English (SSE) helps. Firstly, within the English speaking world, there are many of us mother tongue speakers who still need to master reading and spelling. SSE offers a Help me read and Help me spell programme which is on another level than all previous attempts to help this large group of English learners.
Secondly, Sophie Sounds English (SSE) caters for the huge demand by students of English as Foreign Language (EFL) or English as a Second Language (ESL). We first started organising high quality English (EFL) Residential Summer Schools in 1995. In 2013 we have now launched our dynamic 'Sophie Sound English' courses which are truly ground breaking and will be included in addition to the Trinity Oral examination.

English language learning
English language learning is more universal than one might at first imagine. Within the English speaking world many mother tongue speakers are semi illiterate and semi articulate. Our Language and Literature Education services (LLE) offers accelrated language learning techniques with specialisations for mother tongue speakers and English as Foreign Language (EFL) or English as a Second Language (ESL).
In terms of development whether in a professional capacity or from a personal perspective, spiritual growth is now widely recognised as a source of emotional strength and psychological well being. Sprituality material drawn from some of the broadest backgrounds can be found on the New City Books webite, and despite being from one faith background or another they have a broadly universal message and appeal.
Continuous professional development(CPD) books
In terms of business performance then business publishing is an excellent source of invaluable knowledge and experience. Every corporate executive and small or medium sized enterprise owner should be reading material on a monthly basis to keep abreats of the latest mananagement techniques. Sources like the Harvard Business Review are excellent sources, if not a little expensive. Other excellent centres of management learning are the Drucker Institute in Claremont, California, US.
