Communicate Better In English: Overview
In this dynamic, interactive 4-part Masterclass Series, you will see how to make the Business English e-course come alive! I’ll talk you through all the modules and together we will activate them, with practical tips and tricks on how to raise the bar in your own (professional) English communication.
Masterclass 1, April 11: We will get cracking on Business Grammar and Idioms – do you sound natural, accurate and confident when speaking English? We will tackle the subtle differences in grammar that could make or break a (business) deal, while enhancing your vocabulary to make you sound more native. I’ll go through the subtle differences in the tenses, which will make you more aware of the possibilities in English, and eliminate the most common mistakes in this area. We’ll also deal with sharpening up your pronunciation so that you’ll use your new words and expressions with flair and ease! You’ll also find out how to increase your vocabulary when you are at home or at work, which means you can express yourself in new and exciting ways. It’s time to start adding more color to your vocabulary!
Masterclass 2, June 6: We will focus on putting the ‘present’ back into presentations, and the differences between formal and informal English. How do you create a presentation that has impact, meaning and value? What do you need to do to have a real connection with your audience? How do you play with the formalities of English (yes, we have lots of levels here) and use them correctly? Are you sounding too blunt or direct in English, as many Dutch people do? We will work on this and more in this exciting module!
Masterclass 3, September 5: It’s time to write it right! In this masterclass we will go through written communication in English – emails, letters and reports, to name just a few. We will also go through the difference between British and American English when it comes to writing. I will also check your own writing samples to give you individual feedback. We will also cover negotiation strategies and tactics – how do you get the best out of an English meeting or negotiation session? How do you disagree politely but still keep the conversation going? This and so much more will be activated in Masterclass 3!
Masterclass 4, December 12: Now we are going to put it all into practise – you will be presenting to me and getting individual feedback! We will also work on social skills crucial for networking in English. How do you break the ice in a social situation? Are you just as comfortable talking socially as you are at work? It’s important that both sides are balanced in English. We will also answer any questions you might have regarding English communication and make sure that you are ready to take the next step in English!
