English for Business
Our Mission
Our mission is to help people to perform more effectively in English in their jobs. We believe that people need to work intensively on language development to be able to make significant progress within a short time frame and so all of our courses are intensive, full-time courses. In our experience, this is what works and is ultimately more cost-effective.
Our methods
Practical and active. Participants are challenged to participate and speak throughout the day, through role plays and work-based exercises.

Fluency practice. We practise the activities that business people are engaged in on a daily basis, building confidence and fluency.
    

Making presentations

All participants practise making presentations acquiring the language they need to be clear and memorable.

 

     

Business phone calls.

They make simulated phone calls based on their own work to practise the kind of conversations they have during conference and telephone calls.

  

Round table meetings.

Our participants take part in round table meetings and we help them with the language they need to put their point across or challenge the views of others.
 
 



   

Negotiating.

They also take part in business-related negotiation case-studies and learn the language for bargaining and creating win-win solutions.
 
 

 

   
 Tailored 1-1 role-plays.

We tailor the role-plays to their own sector and function so that the language they learn is relevant to their needs. 
 
   

Comprehension. We use recorded business dialogues to improve comprehension, input business vocabulary and grammatical structures and develop pronunciation.

  • These dynamic stories, set in different sectors of the business world, are recorded at different levels of difficulty to provide a challenge to participants of different language levels from elementary to advanced.

Structure of the language. We teach grammatical structure through the business activities, grammar spots and worksheets to improve accuracy.

We have delivered this training to many companies in different sectors including the following:

  • ABB, Andıç Law, Astra Zeneca, Ata Sigorta, Avivasa, Aviva Sigorta, Bayer Crop Science, Bayer Material Science, Bayer Schering, Boehringer Ingelheim, Bristol Myers Squibb, Coca-Cola, Colgate-Palmolive, Dupont, Eli Lilly, Enel, Epson, Finansbank, Garanti Bank, Hacıbekiroğlu Law, Gün Avukatlık Bürosu, Inal Law, JTI, Mapfre Genel Sigorta, Mars Entertainment, Mauri Maya, Novartis, Peppers & Rogers, Renault, Stroer Kent Vision, Sanofi Aventis, Türk Ekonomi Bankası, UCB
