English for Business Use
Our English for Business Use course will entail lessons in grammar, speaking, listening and reading. Participants will be provided with all the necessary resources, starting with books, articles from magazines and newspapers, as well as audio and video material.
In grammar, we will focus on tenses, syntax (correct word order in the sentence), word spelling, and usage of adjectives, adverbs, comparatives, as well as conditional sentences and much more. You will learn the major differences between American and British English. We will teach you formal business writing, the correct expressions used in an official company letter. You will learn how to write a CV, business proposal or any other correspondence directed to your colleagues, partners, and associates.
We will focus on active listening skills so that you would be able to draw as much information from the speaker as possible. In addition, you will hear different accents, so you wouldn’t be lost among the various types of English.
Reading exercises will involve articles and news excerpts that will deal with any business related subject. Through reading, we will learn correct pronunciation and build our vocabulary bank. The most exciting part of any language is the speaking bit.
Our program has a whole array of interactive activities that will help you speak elegantly, fast and with more confidence; exactly what you would expect from a serious and aspiring entrepreneur. We will have situational conversations, debates, oral presentations, and discussions.
