Corporate English course? That's right. Let's say you are a business owner, a CEO or a decision maker for some corporation, and you have 3 very talented associates on your team who speak English as a Second Language (ESL). Part of their job is to pitch ideas to clients during regular meetings, report on progress, and collaborate with coworkers internally until the project meets the clients' standards. In order to level the playing field, you want your ESL associates to present their own ideas during meetings, but they have expressed that they don't feel confident enough in their language skills to speak during client meetings. This is just one of countless examples that highlight the need for customized English training. All of our English training programs are people centered, business focused✅; and truly allow decision makers freedom to customize our curriculum✅ to meet your business needs.

Here's how our corporate English course can help your non-native English speaking associates during professional meetings
At some point in a career, almost everyone in any workplace worries about the impact of mistakes. Everyone makes them eventually because at the end of the day, no one is perfect. When it comes to ESL associates (those who speak English as a Second Language) - the time spent worrying about mistakes may not be appropriate- which in turn, affects confidence and can prevent them from sharing key insight, good ideas and observations. Overcoming barriers to language can add additional levels of difficulty that managers and directors may not be aware of and affect worker performance in their view. Some objectives professional meeting skills trainings can accomplish are:
- Preparing for meetings including when to call a meeting, how to call one, how to write an agenda, allocating roles, appropriate follow-up and more
- Opening a meeting and how to set expectations including objectives and using time appropriately and delegating effectively
- Expressing opinions and when to do so. How to frame questions, including tone and what phrases to use
- How to disagree without coming across as disrespectful is absolutely a skill, and how to find the confidence to do so appropriately
In addition to the above, there is a lot of other key factors involved with our professional meetings series when combined with a corporate English course. The point is: managers should be aware of the needs of their employees and figure out how to meet them, and our professional skills series can help. Other professional skills trainings for associates include:
- business writing for emails, proposals and other professionally written material
- improving speaking skills like diction and pronunciation
- diversity awareness and cultural competence
- employee English lessons and improving negotiation skills
- improving communication with corporate language lessons
and so much more!
