The people for whom business English is most useful are probably those who are already working in businesses where English is necessary for some part of their work, and who have therefore had the opportunity to see what they can and can’t do effectively in English. These, together with people who are on the point of changing their jobs and facing new demands, are usually called “post-experience trainees”. Of course others can benefit too – people who are just going to start on a career in business, having perhaps finished a university course. However, the English emphasis in these cases is a little different; such people need to study the world of business at the same time as they are learning the language – they are learning business in English, rather than English for business. These people are usually called “pre-experience trainees”.
It depends firstly on whether you are a “post-experience” or a “pre-experience” trainee. Most post-experience trainees already know the terminology of their own area of business in English, but don’t know enough other English to use their specialist knowledge effectively for doing business in the real world. For these people a business English course is mainly not about special terminology. On the other hand “pre-experience trainees” will still be learning, or be going to learn, the terminology of their chosen area in their own language, and will not yet be clear about what terminology they might need. They will need to study general terminology as part of their course. As with Question 1, above, these different needs can not always be met within the same teaching group.
Yes, it must – you can’t have language without grammar. But the way it is approached is usually different from grammar in a general English course. A good business course will look at the trainee’s professional needs first and then concentrate on the grammatical structures of most immediate practical use. It is one mark of a good course that it will use the practical functions related to the trainees’ experience to teach and practise the grammatical forms. A less good course often separates business functions and structure, teaching the mechanics of grammar rather than use.
Yes we offer evening and weekend classes.
Yes of course! Teachers encourage you to speak by using the communicative method in all classes which develops confidence and fluency in your spoken English. The centre has an English-only policy.
Yes, we offer one-to-one lessons in all our programs. The price varies per program.
We use the Communicative Language Approach in English classes. We use real-life situations and encourage communication throughout each lesson. The course content has a solid base of language functions (grammar) and appropriate social language (gestures and expressions). Even in grammar classes, you will have lots of opportunity to practise communication using the newly taught grammar structure as a base. This method puts great emphasis on listening and developing the ability to understand others. You will use lots of different resources in the classroom. Among these, course books act as the core tool which integrates the language and skills input. You will also use audio-visual resources, authentic materials and a wide range of computer-based activities that give you the opportunity to expand your learning through language exercises and the internet. Be prepared to take part in all the class activities, do your homework and go to the structured study sessions – you will then make maximum progress!
You will receive a Certificate of Attendance at the end of your course, which will show your level of English, the dates on which you have studied, as well as your attendance.
Each branch has a Director of Studies, an Academic Manager and academic team of teachers. You will have a specific teacher or tutor assigned to your course and class. Your class teacher will be able to answer specific questions about your lessons and activities and the course tutor will be able to answer questions on your course and will monitor your progress and attendance on a weekly basis.
All study materials for use in class and for structured study will be provided but these resources are not included in the course fees. If you wish to purchase books you can do so in the centre or at a local book shop.
Our HRM certificate program instructors are working professionals with extensive experience in human resources and related fields.
No. Each course is designed to stand alone. However, in order to complete the program, you will need to take “required courses” following a certain course plan.
Upon completion of the course hours including the Project, you will receive the Human Resources Management Certificate from our Centre. Students usually take two or more classes per quarter. Most classes are four or five weeks long and conveniently offered once a week. The overall time you need to complete the final certificate will depend on which courses you select. Usually it takes maximum 20 days to recieve your certificate.
Trainers and instructors are evaluated before selection, and then each year according to the following technical criteria: • Subject knowledge • Classroom management (the ability to organize the class for maximum benefit to student learning) • Course and lesson planning • Understanding learners (understanding trainees difficulties, evaluating progress, and giving feedback to individual trainees.
