A course with focus on the English you need in your job
This course is for you if you want to improve your spoken English on a course that is shorter than those we usually offer. It lasts for just six weeks and we focus solely on the English you need in your job.
Therefore, you will improve your English for specific job-related tasks such as writing emails - both formal and informal - and receiving and making telephone calls.
You will also learn useful words and phrases for participating in business meetings so you are better able to get your point across, and we will discuss how to successfully network with business connections because international business is largely about who you know.
It is often a lack of knowledge of exceptions to rules, other small nuances in the language or how to communicate more indirectly that mean that you can fall short of making an excellent impression when communicating in English. For example, it is possible to sound a little too forceful in negotiations when disagreeing with someone. If you would like to avoid such situations, then join this course where we will practise dealing with the different situations you may encounter when doing business internationally.
You will have the chance to practise:
- asking the right questions - also when you disagree with someone
- defend and challenge different opinions
- make suggestions
You do not need to buy a course book for this course as your teacher will find teaching material that is relevant to those on the course. All teaching material is included in the price.
You will have access to our online learning platform, Moodle, where you will find the course plan, teaching material, homework and other useful online resources for learning English, which your teacher has selected for you and your class. Via Moodle, you can also communicate with your teacher and fellow students.
The number of students on all courses at the Cambridge Institute is just 4-8. Small classes mean that your teacher has more time to help you personally during each lesson.
Preparation time: 1-2 hours per week.
