C1 Business English Communication
Fine-tune your English language skills for the workplace
This course is for you if you have already mastered English at a high level, but would like to fine-tune your business English further so you become even better at avoiding potential misunderstandings.
Therefore, we focus on high-level skills such as summarising decisions, making an impact in presentations and rounding off meetings.
We also look at how you can improve the impression you make on your business partners and colleagues, and you will have the opportunity to hone your social skills when it comes to engaging in small talk and breaking the ice when meeting new contacts.
We also look at useful vocabulary/phrases and situations in which the relationship with the customer plays a role. To this end, we will read and discuss articles concerning customer service and preference.
For written assignments, you will have the chance to practise writing formal letters and emails for which you will receive feedback from your teacher.
The course is not based on a course book. Instead your teacher will provide all the teaching material, which is taken from a variety of interesting and relevant sources and is included in the price. Throughout the course, you will have the opportunity to share your opinions and ideas with your fellow students. You will develop your skills in a relaxed and friendly environment to help you succeed in the workplace.
