Course overview 

Have you ever thought to yourself during a meeting, call or seminar, how could I say that in English? What would be appropriate to say in this situation? Will my peers understand me when I say that?

As we all know, many companies have made the transition in recent years to using English as their official language. Many people know how to conduct business activities but are lacking the appropriate language skills in the workplace.

This course has been designed to help participants get their ideas across in a professional setup confidently in English. Throughout the duration of the course, participants will be able to recognize language patterns, be acquainted with soft skills needed in the workplace and use key phrases. All participants will be urged to use these ideas and phrases through a variety of structured exercises both independently and within a team.

Language proficiency
This Erasmus Plus training course is best suited for those with at least a B1 certificate. All of the materials will be presented in English.

With the aim to involve active participation and achieve the best learning experience, the course methodology is based on dynamic, innovative and creative methods of experiential learning.
It consists of:
Theoretical work - If you do not know what you are talking about, you will not be able to apply it. Nowadays, more and more emphasis is put on practical learning, yet theory is a necessity. You have to know the background of a subject to be able to pinpoint its challenges.
Practical work - Through practical workshops and interactive tasks you will gain personal experience that will help you understand and implement ideas in your own work.
Coaching - Each participant in the course will get the opportunity to receive direct feedback from our coaches. These individual consultations will result in being able to better position your skills in your respected organisation.

The course includes a structured 5-day program with an optional day 0 on Sunday, when participants are encouraged to arrive. Each program starts on Monday morning and finishes on Friday evening. Throughout the course, besides training, we will promote professional networking through a variety of social and cultural activities.
