Astrid T. Stormorken MD, PhD.
Company: University Hospital Oslo, Norway – Consultant and Specialist in Clinical Genetics
Course: One-to-One

A great week spent at Riversdown House in November 2013!

I am a medical specialist in Clinical Genetics, working at the University Hospital in Oslo, Norway. Norwegian is my native language. My PhD was written in English and I am a co-author of several publications in international medical journals. I have worked 16 months as a consultant at The Royal Marsden Hospital in London. Over the years I have had presentations/lectures at national and international meetings. I came to Riversdown House because I wished to improve my English, both for private and professional use.

The training programme was customized to my needs. I spent one week having mainly face-to-face sessions. I wished to improve my grammar, vocabulary and written English. I did not feel a need to strengthen my work-related vocabulary (medical terms), but to incorporate them in well written and spoken English. The trainers I had were quite professional and were able to relate to my needs. We spent time working on drafts for medical publications, improving grammar and language. I enjoyed reading and discussing newspaper- and magazine articles, and British humour. At my wish we also had some culinary discussions based on selected English menus.

Riversdown House has a great atmosphere. Meals were shared at the main house in good company with fellow students, teachers and Mr and Mrs Lewis. Each day had some social event.

I greatly recommend Riversdown House and the language course to everyone who wishes to improve their English in a professional, friendly and outstanding environment.

"I have had the pleasure of visiting Riversown twice the last couple of years. It has been a tremendous experience providing me with valuable insights and knowledge. My English has improved both from a business conversational perspective as written. What I especially appreciated during my visits was the focused learning environment with highly skilled and engaged teachers but also the possibility to tailor suit the learning experience by changing the schedule in accordance with my progress and need.

In conclusion I can highly recommend a visit to Riversdown. You will meet people from all around the world ackompanied with a lovely scenery, professional recreation possibilities such as golf, tennis, local visits and non the least a warm and open relation both with the teaching staff as well as with Mr Richard D. Lewis who always took time to interact."

“Com a expansão internacional do Grupo Talent que exerce a sua atividade na área do ensino de design e marketing, do qual sou acionista e administrador, tive que me preparar para ir viver para Londres onde me encontro parte do meu tempo, desde 2013. Com uma formação de 4 semanas que decorreu ao longo de três meses, tive oportunidade de evoluir de um nível de “no english” para o Inglês necessário a uma independência em Londres.

Riversdown não me proporcionou apenas um progresso no idioma mas também a amizade com a família Lewis com quem tenho já partilhado outros momentos fora de Riversdown e uma rede de contactos com colegas de outras nacionalidades que frequentaram comigo esta passagem por Riversdown. É sem dúvida uma experiência que tenciono repetir cada ano.
Até breve”
