Languages for Business

Do you travel abroad for work? Do you have business contacts in other countries? Does your company want to expand into foreign markets? We all know that English is the international language of business but being able to speak even just a bit of the local lingo can help open doors and smooth the way to getting that all-important contract.

This Level 1 course teaches you the essentials of the language from a start-up level with a focus on the world of work. It is suitable if you are a complete beginner or already have a basic knowledge of the language. You may, for instance, have studied the language at school but need to refresh the basics to feel really confident. We will teach you the foundation language skills that will help you in the world of work: meeting and greeting clients and colleagues; making travel arrangements and getting around; booking hotels and ordering in restaurants; communicating via email and telephone; sales and promotions; providing customer service; learning business jargon; coping with social situations such as parties and events.
