1. Private Business English Intensive Courses in Amsterdam: Professional communication training.

In today’s globalized business world, English is the undisputed language leader. From Amsterdam to Paris to Munich, business people must speak English in order to communicate with colleagues and partners from around the world.

In many international companies, English is the official company language, so employees must use English all day– English for meetings, English for sales, written English emails and reports, English presentations and speeches, English customer service… the list is endless. And even if your company has not yet chosen English as the company language, workers are still expected to perform well in English.

Expectations re: your performance of business English tasks will start in the job interview process and continue through every activity, spoken and written. Colleagues, bosses and clients will notice your:

  • fluency (flow)
  • confidence
  • concision
  • sentence structure

  • grammar
  • pronunciation
  • diplomacy

..and while perfection is not required, your English proficiency can be a great asset in your professional profile. CEFR level B1 across speaking and writing skills is generally the minimum, while higher level jobs will require higher level skills.

These Private Customized Business English Courses focus on practical scenarios, such as presentations, negotiations, and business correspondence.
