Professional English training is an important step towards learning English specific to your work setting and to advancing your career. The focus of our Professional English courses is on communicating clearly in a business setting.
Many large and medium-sized companies now require their employees to speak English to enable:
Clearer communication among staff internally and externally
Improved customer relations
Interaction with colleagues in an everyday office setting
Support for their company in being a global player
Our Professional English courses will give you confidence in using English in the workplace, for example making phone calls, writing reports and e-mails, giving presentations, holding meetings, and participating in negotiations.
Professional English lessons give you the tools you need to be engaged during meetings and to offer your expertise with confidence.
Each lesson will support you in progressively developing your English language skills: speaking, listening. vocabulary, grammar, and pronunciation. These lessons will support you in developing the confidence to apply what you learn to your professional needs.
This course is designed to help you develop your conversational English. It will help you in learning and in using everyday English expressions, commonly-used idioms and a wide range of phrasal verbs.
This course will be especially useful if you are:
Moving to an English-speaking country
Interacting frequently with native English speakers
Working with people of mixed cultures, where English is the language of communication.
Conversational English training will help you in those social situations such as conferences, dinners, coffee breaks and corridor conversations. Think of times when maybe someone says ‘How’s it going?’ or ‘What’s up?’ and you have no idea how to respond! The topic or expression used may be outside what you normally use in meetings and in discussing work.
The course will help in connecting with English-speaking colleagues and clients, and so contribute towards building effective professional relationships. It will boost your confidence in using English in the many different situations in which you find yourself working.
