Improve the communication skills you need for international business. By enrolling on our Business Communication course, you will develop effective communication and interpersonal skills that will allow you to succeed in the world of work. Learn English relevant to your job – whether that’s vocabulary or grammar – and also work on the different types of communication you use at work, including participating in meetings, delivering presentations, negotiating, telephoning, networking, and writing emails. This course will also help you grow your intercultural communication abilities and give you tips on how to manage diversity in the workplace effectively.
Become a highly effective international communicator with our Effective International Communication course. This flagship training programme builds on the first three dimensions of our training - English language, professional communication and intercultural skills - by including a fourth dimension of essential international collaboration skills (building trusting relationships, influencing, managing conflict and handling feedback), the key people skills for success across cultures.
We offer a range of courses which combine a focus on specialist vocabulary relevant for participants’ specific jobs with skills training. Specialist areas include Energy English (Oil, Gas and Energy Industries), Financial English, Human Resources English, Legal English, Maritime English, Political English, Purchasing English, Sales English, Technical English, Education, Trade Union and EWC English, and Cambridge BEC Exam preparation.
Our ESP courses combine mornings of one-to-one training dedicated to a participant’s specialist terminology with afternoons focused on group work (Business Communication) and the development of professional and intercultural communication skills, putting the specialist vocabulary into practice.
Develop your fluency and confidence so you can communicate more easily for work or personal reasons. As a participant in this group course, you will take part in discussions on a range of up-to-date topics of general interest, including current affairs, travel, culture and latest trends. By following this course, you will also develop the key skills necessary for effective communication with people from different backgrounds.
During this twelve-week programme, you will be allocated a work placement four days a week in a local organisation and attend a three-hour BEC preparation session once a week for a total of thirty-six hours. The course will end with the BEC Vantage (B2) or Higher (C1) exam.
