Globalization has significantly changed the way we live and work. Being fluent in English, a lingua-franca of the business world, really can take you further.
However, whether or not trained in the language from an early age, it is often the case that you might find yourself in deep waters when it comes to dealing with specific business situations. Especially in the current economic climate, it is of utmost importance to equip yourself with those extra language abilities and skills. If you really want to succeed, a Business English course can take you a long way!
How should you go about it? Dedicated language schools can help you get to grips with English needed at your workplace. You might consider a general Business English course or an ESP course (English for Specific Purposes, i.e English for Medicine, Law, Tourism etc). Such courses are often aimed at professionals who already have a certain level of English, but want to develop their language skills in order to advance their career. Students join with the aim of brushing-up their language skills for current or future career opportunities.
In addition to language, a Business English course will often cover specific applications of the language that could improve your workplace skills. Training will often include letter and email writing, telephone skills, meetings and presentations, as well as business etiquette.
So if you want to climb the career ladder but think that your language skills are holding you back, it may be time to consider a Business English course. Andrioti School can help you design the best possible course tailored to your needs, which can prepare you and open up further career opportunities.
