B2 English for Meetings and Workshops
During this upper intermediate course, you will learn current, relevant vocabulary appropriate for conducting meetings and participating in workshops.
This will be achieved through role-playing authentic business situations. For example, you will be required to chair a short meeting twice during the course. As part of this process, you will be asked to construct an agenda, use relevant language to conduct meetings firmly and impartially, and delegate appropriate resolutions as action points.
With regards to workshops, you will learn how to convey your message with confidence and will be able to give appropriate feedback, whether as a facilitator or as a participant.
We recommend that you buy the book The Language of Meetings by Malcolm Goodale, ISBN 9780906717462, before the course starts. The coursebook will be supplemented with materials supplied by your teacher. Throughout the course you are encouraged to bring appropriate materials dealing specifically with your own work environment.
You can buy the book here: academicbooks.dk or at Academic Books, Øster Farimagsgade 5A, 1353 Copenhagen K.
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.
