Business English Courses

Business English Programs Overview

Are you an English-as-a-second-language professional who wants to become more proficient? Or maybe a native speaker who wants to improve the skills you already have?

English is an official language in more than 90 countries—widely recognized as the world’s international language of business. So, our Business English courses focus on the everyday business communications people use most often. You’ll learn the skills needed to have conversations in English with colleagues and customers, understand internal communications, recognize and interpret safety signs, and comprehend industry protocols.

Fluent English-speaking professionals can benefit from Business English as well. Our English-speaking clients improve their speaking and writing skills, becoming more effective, comprehensible and engaged with their customers and co-workers.

Testimonials

“I recently completed a 12-week course in business communication with Language Advantage Inc. English is my second language and I needed to improve my writing and speaking skills. I am a manager, and my position requires writing a lot of reports and being able to prepare and deliver various presentations effectively.

Thanks to this course, both skills have improved in such a short time. Right from the start, I was able to apply what I was learning and noticed my confidence level increasing tremendously.

I strongly recommend this company, my instructor was very knowledgeable and personalized a learning plan to my particular needs. In addition, their customer service is excellent.

As a student, I give Language Advantage Inc. an A+.”

Business Language Programs

Language learning that’s customized for you, in any of six language programs. Your industry, role, and sector-specific vocabulary is the focus, intensified for maximum effectiveness.

The programs combine general communication with real business scenarios and tasks. You learn by enacting situations and conversations that are relevant to you, both on-the-job and as someone living in another country.

A training plan is developed for you specifically, following a thorough evaluation of your writing and/or oral skills.

Lunch & Learn Boootcamps

Yes! Language learning can be fun! An interactive small-group forum can help you practise and improve your language skills with others at the same level who have the same goal.

At Bootcamp, groups of four-to-six participants meet for conversations and different activities to learn and practice general and business vocabulary. From New Beginner to Advanced, you’ll be with others whose language ability is similar, so you can encourage each other, chart your progress and have fun learning together.

In one-hour sessions, you’ll learn to improve your language skills with colleagues and/or clients. Discussions, role-plays, mini-improvisations, presentations, and a theme day (work, current affairs, social interactions, telephone skills, travel, and others) will keep your interest high, your spirits light, and the vocabulary relevant.

English Business Immersion Program with Assessment

The next step. Business Immersion introduces an element of sophistication in the use of English. If you’re ready and need more complex language training or to practise multi-tasking in the new language, this intensive program is for you.

Included is:

  • pronunciation and elocution: enhancing sound production, intelligibility, overall impact of the message transmitted
  • grammar and usage: writing emails, reports, memos and letters.

To begin, we’ll assess your linguistic goals and your current level of knowledge and language confidence. A series of about 25 questions, both written and oral, measure your grammar and comprehension.

Afterwards, our teaching team will determine how to customize your core program to produce the results you want. The program’s emphasis can be adjusted to strengthen your skills in presenting, negotiating, telephoning, video-conference coaching, reading (and understanding) business materials, chairing a meeting or socializing.

Your progress will be evaluated weekly and instructors will adapt the program accordingly.

In private or group format.
