Essential Language Courses

The "Essential Language" courses are 1 day workshops in a variety of languages which give you an introduction to the basics of the language:

Working internationally requires effective communication in order to do business. All too often we expect others to conduct business entirely in English. Yet learning the basics of a new language can be straightforward and rewarding. Our experience shows that the willingness to communicate in the language of your clients, colleagues or hosts goes a long way in developing your business and building relationships. Survival language will also help you when travelling abroad.

Our "Essential" Language course give you an introduction to the sounds, vocabulary and phrases of each language. Based on our communicative approach and taught by our professional and experienced staff, these courses are taught interactively, enabling participants to use the spoken language from the start. The course is designed to provide practical language skills and will cover basic vocabulary, focusing on words and phrases for typical social and routine business situations. We provide relevant and useful materials that participants can take away with them including a workpack, phrasebook and useful tools to help you continue learning.

You can expect to have some of the following on a 1 day language course (exact content will be tailored for your needs):

  • Greetings
  • Introductions about yourself and company
  • Giving and asking for personal information
  • Asking for directions and transport advice
