Business English Course

Ashraf Al Shafaki offers Business English training for employees of multicultural companies.

Skills

During the Business English training program, participants get to improve their English language listening, speaking, and writing skills. Here is how each of these skills is improved during the Business English training program.

Speaking

The trainer guides participants to hold many conversations related to their work in order to practice their English language speaking skills. The focus is on expressing one's ideas in a comprehensible way without worrying about having to be perfect. This open discussion in such a safe environment empowers participants to gain more confidence in speaking in English. The ample opportunity for practice greatly improves the English language speaking skills of participants in addition to increasing their confidence.

Listening

The trainer selects professional videos related to the work environment of participants. A diversity of different accents are used. Participants listen repeatedly to the videos and attempt to communicate what they heard and understood. The trainer then helps them grasp the correct phrases and meaning they have just listened to.

Writing

Business writing skills are practiced mainly by writing emails about various topics. Participants are first offered opportunities for guided peer reviews of their writing. The trainer then checks in and provides his own feedback pointing out to improvements that can be made to the emails written by participants.

Tools

The Business English training covers how to make the best use of the following tools to aid in breaking the language barrier:

  • Using Grammarly to improve the language of your emails
