English Business Immersion Program with Pre-Assessment

Your Business Immersion Program begins with a pre-assessment to determine your current level of knowledge and your linguistic goals. Our language assessment consists of a series of approximately 25 questions, both written and verbal, and will measure your grammar and comprehension. After your assessment, our professional teaching team will discuss with our Director how to customize your core program to best meet your short and long term objectives.

Customized Core Program
The elements of your business immersion program might include depending on your needs and objectives: presenting, negotiating, telephoning and video-conference coaching, reading, and understanding business materials, chairing a meeting, and socializing.

Your program includes:

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

To ensure good integration of these skills, our teaching team meets weekly to measure and evaluate your progress and will make the necessary adjustments to your program.
