We have over 25 years’ experience supporting non-native speakers of English and have developed a range of workshops to enhance their skills in the workplace.
‘Learning another language is not only learning different words for the same things, but learning another way to think about things.’
We work with non-native speakers of English who use their English most of the time and, often, at a very high level. Our learners require the kind of English that isn’t taught at school or college – they need language that can help them get the best out of an international team, have challenging conversations, or collaborate effectively.
We don’t do ‘off the shelf’ language support so, to give you a flavour of what we’re about, here are some examples of the kinds of workshops that we develop for individuals and teams:
Leading Meetings – a half day session exploring; commonly used language in meetings; getting your point across; encouraging participation; and different meeting leadership styles.
Presentation Skills – a half-day session aimed at improving confidence and developing specific language areas for the delegate(s). This can often include areas such as: development of pronunciation; slowing down speech; and using appropriate terminology.
Dealing with Small Talk – several cultures just don’t use small talk the way we do and it can cause barriers to getting on in the workplace. This half day session explores: why we use small talk, how to use it and some of the weird and wonderful phrases that we use to express ourselves.
Not sure if your employees have a language need? Let us have your number and we’ll drop you a line. Let’s talk.
