Do you speak English but make mistakes and feel unprofessional? Do you have or plan a job that requires speaking fluent English? Do you know English grammar but still get confused by certain more complicated rules? Then this program is for you!
In today’s globalised world, good knowledge of English is becoming increasingly necessary. In particular, many companies now require a good level of English for applicants. Often a lack of English proficiency can be a hurdle that even stops careers! At the same time, it’s often difficult to find the right course in a short period of time which offers a genuine improvement to your professional communication skills. This workshop is for busy people who have little time to improve their English proficiency.
This is no regular English language course! This is an intensive workshop for those who already can speak English but would like to enhance their skills both for professional and personal life. The focus is made on speaking and writing business skills.
Having great communication skills in English is a perfect way to leave a great impression on colleagues and partners. Candidates with better English certainly stand out against others at job interviews. During the workshop, you will learn and practice business correspondence and negotiations in English. You will definitely move to the next level!
The workshop allows to find out any problems with your English and help to improve your professional communication. Your speaking and writing skills will become better and more professional, you will feel much more confident! You will start to understand smaller details and maybe (just MAYBE!) begin to understand British humour!
Why Amsterdam? The Netherlands has one of the highest levels of English proficiency among countries where English is not the official language. Furthermore, Amsterdam is one of the most international cities in the world, so you will meet people from almost every country. We believe this is a perfect environment for adjusting your English!
If you can’t get your dream job in your dream country because your English isn’t good enough, then join Professional English Speaking and Writing Workshop today and get the green light for your future career in an international organisation.
Communication is often the hardest part of any language. Speaking and writing are perhaps the hardest parts of English. It is a core part of our educational philosophy that everyone requires individual attention in order to improve. Moreover, different people make different mistakes at different times and therefore need to be catered to as individuals. This workshop is aimed at small groups where each member can receive personal attention from a tutor and get personalized feedback and recommendations.
The participants are expected to arrive on Sunday. There will be no activities planned on that day so if you arrive early in the morning you can plan your day!
Participants are tested and divided into small groups according to their levels. From Monday to Thursday there are sessions. The sessions will be quite intense, we recommend not to miss any of them and attend all the sessions. Friday is the departure day (no activities).
At the beginning of the program, a tutor asks participants what are the topics they would like to focus on, what are the fields where they have difficulties, what are issues they would like to address. The tutor slightly adjusts the program in order to address all these points. Some of the questions will be addressed during the sessions (they might be interesting for other participants as well) and others can be addressed individually.
The workshop is conducted by a native speaker in small groups to make sure everyone will be involved in the learning process.
We recommend having at least B1-B2 of English level before joining the workshop in order to be able to receive all the benefits from the participation.
The workshop consists of the following blocks:
- Common Mistakes
- Professional Communication
- Teamwork in English
- CV, & Motivation letter
- Job Interview
- Writing Emails
- Professional English
- Individual Feedbacks
- Travelling after the course (Optional)
We try to make sure that the program will be relevant to your learning needs!
