English is the leading lingua franca used for international communication in many organisations and institutions across the globe. Working with people from other cultures and countries has become common practice for many employers and employees at all levels, from reception to the board. Educational institutions also recognise the need to adapt their services in English with the influx of international students joining their programmes.
Communicating professionally and confidently in a language that is not your own can be challenging and feel unnatural or awkward. Effective and accurate communication is vital to getting your message across, not only to avoid misinterpretation or confusion, but also to avoid being offensive! This relates to many important elements including having an awareness of appropriate grammar, work-related language, style and tone, as well as the cultural influences involved at play.
Areas which often need to be addressed in English include writing emails and reports, telephoning, small talk and everyday interaction, presentations, lectures, meetings and negotiations. Establishing the professional language goals of the client or employee will enable us at Pink Parrot to tailor the language course according to these needs. All courses are delivered on-location and are organised at your convenience on a one-to-one basis or in small groups of up to 6 employees.
If you would like more details about how to arrange a language training course for your organisation please contact us by phone or email.
