Time To Talk Corporate Business English.
Corporate business English has never been more important than it is now. Today, there is an ever-increasing number of non-native English speakers working at international companies where English is the main form of communication. International companies do business with both non-English speakers and native English speakers daily. With globalization and the increasing use of technology, companies are finding that if you do business internationally, whether you are a company owner or an employee, you need to be able to speak, think, and use English confidently. The inability to speak in English or the poor use of English reflects badly upon the Company, and this, in turn, can have a direct negative impact on the business.
Most Business people think that they should learn Corporate Business English. They know that with Business English they will learn how to answer the phone, conduct a meeting, give a presentation, survive a conference call, and learn the terms relating to sales and marketing, but many forget that when we speak and use English in everyday situations, we are not just speaking in Business English terms
When we speak to our colleagues, clients, or customers, we use small talk. We ask them how they are, if they had a good trip, where are they staying, or even what is the weather like where they are. Most Business English teachers do not think that teaching small talk is important, but we use it every day, We also have to attend business lunches and dinners, travel, take a taxi or order food. So not only does a business person need to know Business English terms, they need to know Everyday English terms, and they need to feel confident speaking, using, and thinking in English.
At The English Language Coach, we offer Corporate Business English courses, from pre-intermediate (A2) level through to advanced levels where you mix both Business English classes with Everyday English classes. The lessons are designed so you will become comfortable and confident with using English in the normal course of your business day. We have sessions that cover the normal topics, like meetings and negotiations, but we also have sessions on small talk, and booking a hotel room or ordering a meal. The courses are perfect for the CEO or the brand new receptionist and really get you speaking, thinking, and using English.
