How to have difficult conversations in English
Mastering the fine art of conversation in English when it’s your second language
What’s the number one reason you want to learn English?
That’s right. When you’re studying English, the most important outcome you want from your studies is the ability to communicate with other English speakers effectively and clearly on any subject.
Yet despite this overriding need to be able to converse, most courses focus on giving you the basic building blocks of grammar without supporting you in adapting these to a number of different situations. It’s great being able to ask your way to the post office when you’re a tourist in a foreign country, but when you want to work in an English speaking country, or would like to communicate with co-workers and employees about anything and everything, those basic phrases aren’t going to get you very far.
That’s why we’ve designed our ESL course to make it easy for you to have confidence in your English abilities so that you can discuss any subject you need.
Our course is perfect for anyone who:
- Needs to coach English-speaking employees or co-workers
- Wants to communicate with employees or co-workers who speak English
- Wants to improve their relationships with English-speaking employees or co-workers
- Wants to work in an English-speaking country
- Has a basic understanding of English but wants to take it to the next level
- Has strong reading and writing skills but struggles with the spoken word
Once you’ve completed our course, you’ll have the skills, vocabulary and confidence you need to be able to converse with anyone, regardless of the topic of conversation.
In this course, you will learn:
- How to express yourself clearly and simply
- How to listen so that you know you understand what the other person is saying
- How to avoid the most common pronunciation errors so you can be certain people understand what you’re saying
- How to focus on the most frequently used grammar tenses, so you can start communicating quickly and effectively
- How to master frequently used slang, idioms, pop culture expressions and peculiarly English phrases
- How to learn industry-specific terms to remove any misunderstandings
- How to improve your overall English language skills, so that you can feel confident in a wide range of difficult situations and scenarios
