The professional English Speaking and Writing Workshop will take place from the 26th of November until the 1st of December 2017, in Amsterdam. Why is this course in Amsterdam? Because we are the Netherlands School for Innovative Education and a large part of our courses are based in Amsterdam. This is not, however, the only reason! The Netherlands is the country with one of the highest levels of English proficiency in countries where English is not the official language. Furthermore, Amsterdam is one of the most international cities in the world, where you can meet people from almost every country. We believe this is a perfect environment for adjusting to using English in a professional way.
In today's globalised world, a good knowledge of English is becoming increasingly necessary. In particular, many companies now require a good level of English for you to work for them. Often a lack of English proficiency can be a hurdle which stops many people developing in their careers. At the same time, it's often difficult to find the right course in a short period of time which offers a genuine improvement to your professional communication skills. This course is designed for busy people who have less than a week to improve their English proficiency.
This is no regular English language course! It's an intensive workshop which aims at significantly improving your communicational skills. Communication is often the hardest part of any language and speaking and writing are perhaps the hardest parts of English. It is a core part of our educational philosophy that each student requires individual attention in order to improve. Moreover, different students make different mistakes at different times and therefore need to be catered to as individuals. This workshop is aimed at small groups where each member can receive personal attention from a tutour and will be given personalised feedback and recommendations to improve their own English, not for the group as a whole. This workshop is designed to target key shortcomings in the student's English skills and to then help them improve on it.
Having great communication skills in English is perfect to leave a good impression on colleagues and partners. Candidates with better English certainly stand out against those who have worse English at a job interview. Professional English communication skills are vital to improving career perspectives.
The workshop will allow you to find out any problems with your English skills and will help you improve your professional communication in English. Your speaking and writing will become better and more professional and by the end of it, you will feel much more confident in your ability. You will begin to understand the smaller details and maybe..just MAYBE you'll begin to understand British humour.
If you can't get your dream job in your dream country because your English isn't good enough, then join our course today and get the green light to your future career in an international organisation.
