Talking Opportunities

 

We provide here an indication of the opportunities we can offer for Talking Business – English. For additional information or to discuss further, please contact us.

Language Practice

      Working on general language, perhaps as the starting point for a Programme

• What would you really like to talk about?

• What do people talk to you about?

• What do you want to do better?

Talking Business

      Examples of Talking Business topics covered in short (2 – 6 hour) Modules. The four headings are only to assist presentation,
      as topics can be placed in any combination to form a narrative and a Programme. For example, on one day, three 2-hour
      Modules: Talking Management, Talking Finance, Talking Information. We can also discuss possible additional topics, and reflect
      specific business issues, at the request of the client.
