English Language School in Boston has years of experience creating custom-made corporate programs and can provide the English training that you need through our English in the Workplace Program.
The Program features corporate English classes tailored to the specific needs of your company and employees, including career advancement/interviewing skills, customer service, technical vocabulary, and other areas which we determine through a needs analysis done with the aid and direction of your Human Resources department or management team.
Work-site classes are geared to benefit those employees whose native language is not English, and the program is designed so that actual work situations encountered on the job become part of the classroom.
Entry-level students may work on basic communication skills, including interaction with customers, giving and receiving simple instructions, vocabulary specific to the worksite, communication with supervisors, and day-to-day conversation with co-workers.
Upper level students may work on business protocol, perfecting pronunciation, delivering presentations, honing networking skills and other social English, telephone communication, writing and reading letters of complaint, delegating meetings, and completing paperwork.
All levels can have the dual focus on work-related English skills and general survival English skills.
Before classes begin, participants will be evaluated and placed in groups according to their skill level. Both supervisors and students will be asked for input as to the needs of the students (explained as a pre-course needs analysis above) so that these can be met in the design of the course.
At the end of the course, supervisors will receive a written evaluation of their employees' progress.
The course can be designed to improve any or all English skill areas: reading, writing, listening, speaking and grammar.
