Training methodology

  • At the time of registration for the ESP – MINING course, each participant must take an initial test to determine the appropriate level at which to start. This means that depending on her knowledge and command of the English language contextualized to the mining industry, she could start from an intermediate level or directly from an advanced one.

Acquired skills

  • Our ESP – MINING course consists of three levels: Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced, which in turn have six modules that cover different areas of the mining industry through vocabulary, lessons, activities, exercises and evaluations of reading, listening, writing and speaking skills adjusted to the language and situations of the sector.
  • The course follows the guidelines of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) for the teaching of vocabulary and skills that are practiced and evaluated within the course.
  • Everything participants learn at all three levels of our program is tailored and specifically focused on situational language needs within the mining industry.


  • Under the CEFR guidelines, the Beginner level of our ESP – MINING course provides students with basic language skills, so they would be in the A1 – A2 range; the Intermediate level would place them within the B1 – B2 range while the Advanced level would help students achieve a fluency similar to that of a native speaker, which would place them in the C1 – C2 range, which is the maximum according to the CEFR scale.
