Business English – let’s talk about business

In the current commercial world, business English is no longer just a ‘nice to know’ skill, it is now a ‘need to know’ skill. The world is merging and business relationships are becoming increasingly international. Anyone who has to conduct negotiations, chair meetings, present projects, write emails or hold a telephone conversation will quickly find themselves held back by their inadequate skills using only the English they learned at school. In a business English course, you not only gain a comprehensive business vocabulary, but also practise specific business situations through roleplay, discussions and case studies. With optimal preparation, the traffic lights for your successful communication in the international business world turn to green.

Business French – ça va bien!

Business French is different from everyday French in many subtle ways. C’est le ton qui fait la musique. If you currently, or will in the future, have contact with French speaking business partners, a course in business French is the right prelude so that you don’t sound out of tune. The programme includes the entire spectrum of language skills: vocabulary, discussions, case studies, roleplay, specific formulations and practices will all help you hit the right note whatever the situation, whatever the document. The morning sessions focus on your general language skills and the afternoons are dedicated to business-specific features.
