Fulltime Business English

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.

Work Experience abroad

Looking to kick-start your career abroad? Several weeks of work experience in a foreign language destination works wonders for your language skills and is a fine addition to any CV. The programme consists of a language course and a subsequent work placement with the company.

The introductory language course is preparation for the subsequent work and adds the required fine-tuning so that the start runs as smoothly as possible with the selected company. As is customary, the language goals will be discussed individually with the student before the course commencement. Regular feedback sessions with the teacher help to cover the necessary learning topics as required. In addition to general language skills, some lessons will be geared towards later professional life and typical situations will be covered.

The directly ensuing work experience can take place in various sectors such as, for example, tourism, marketing, communications, sales, transport etc. Examples of partner companies in Paris include: Accor Hotels, Hotel du Louvre, Espace Dali Museum, Schenker and ICTV Solférino Documentaries.

Note: Completed online bookings for work placements abroad are provisional. All final bookings are preceded by a detailed consultation and needs assessment carried out by Eurocentres (by telephone or in the consultation office).
