Business English Course
With English as the global language of choice for all aspects of business, many corporations expect their employees to use spoken and written English to communicate effectively at work.
In our Bloomsbury Business English course, you will learn how to express yourself more fluently and confidently when communicating with clients and colleagues at different levels and in various work situations. You’ll get exposed to negotiation, confrontation, critical thinking and British business culture. You’ll remain in a business-like atmosphere and be referred to as “Clients” not “students”.
You’ll spend the week, opening every session with a look at the day’s real-world business news through professional publications. You’ll spend the week picking up authentic business terminology and vocabulary through business themed training tasks, which will lead to an end of course seminar & board meeting where you’ll fight for your place on the board, or for your radical new project to be accepted into company culture.
