Business English Classes
English may not have the highest number of native speakers in the world, but as the de facto lingua franca of the business world, it is the most important for most workers to learn if they are with an English-language company or plan to do business with an English-speaking territory.
Our staff have many years of experience of teaching English for the business world. As communication is one of the most important business skills, our programmes will help you to simultaneously develop your English skills AND your business skills: we are not simply teaching business English, but English in the world of business and business in the world of English.
We can adapt and personalise our courses for the individual, but typical themes on our programmes include:
- Introducing yourself
- Telephone calls
- Networking and small talk
Do you need to write English to clients? Speak English with your bosses? Or the opposite? Do you need to read and understand documents or listen to complex conversations?
We can include everything that you need in the proportions that you need. Our objective is to produce confident and happy business English users, who have the type of English that they need.
Plus, we also have experience of teaching business English for specific purposes.
Do you work in one of these fields? If so, we can give you a programme for these specific industries (and many others):
- Banking – Engineering – Finance – Logistics – Marketing - Media – Medicine – Sales
- You can combine it with a typical business English programme or even with a General English programme.
- You will practice the different skills of reading, listening, writing and speaking through a variety of stimulating and modern activities.
Grammar, the essential structure of a language, is normally taught as an integrated part of the classes – you practice the grammar in the context of a theme rather than do boring and repetitive exercises. For example, imagine you are studying a future tense. Your class may be about future technologies in the workplace and your teacher will ask you to practice talking in this future tense by describing what you predict will change, how your company is going to change, etc. You are practising and learning with real situations.
