Courses based on conversation will help you beat insecurity!

All of the courses at English for Success are focused, first and foremost, on conversation and gaining independence in talking in this language. One of the main goals is to remove insecurity and prevent translating from another language to English – the most common problem my students have. In our classes, we will also commonly use “role-plays” – short conversations where a student takes a role and “acts out” a business situation.

All the communication in our classes is going to be only in English, including instructions and explanations of unfamiliar words. My experience at various international online schools of English has taught me that this is the best and most painless way to learn proper pronunciation, gain confidence in speech, and adopt the language itself.

Our focus is on discussion and conversation, practicing correct pronunciation and usage of phrases and idioms, as well as learning grammar rules. It is my attitude that clear communication and understanding is much more important than perfect pronunciation (which is something that takes a long time to build). I also believe that students feel more confident and communicate more easily when they have a sound knowledge of grammar.

All the classes, regardless of the course you choose, last for 60 minutes.

How we can work together:

  • Business English course for your specific needs
  • Conversational course

Business English course

The general course of Business English includes all the topics necessary for the average business person in most jobs. It will help you feel more confident in everyday situations where you have to speak in English, such as meetings, negotiations, telephoning, etc.

This course is divided into 14 modules, or topics, and we will work on each topic for eight classes. We can cover the modules in the order I made, or you can choose the ones you need or the ones you find the most interesting.

You can also choose to focus more on one topic. In that case, I would prepare additional materials and help you master it, before we move on to the next one.

This course includes lessons related to written correspondence with your business partners and clients, in addition to conversational lessons. That is why we pay a lot of attention to correcting spelling mistakes and learning the right way to write different business letters.

Conversational course

I came up with this conversational course thanks to some of my students who didn’t need strictly Business English, but who did want to improve their communication skills in this language and get more confident in everyday conversations on various topics.

Each lesson in this course includes three parts:

  1. learning new words and phrases important for this lesson
  2. reading a text (usually a short newspaper article) about a topic we agreed upon in advance
  3. a conversation about this topic, as well as thinking questions and a discussion

This course is focused on understanding the text, learning to think in English and stop translating from your native language, as well as broadening your vocabulary with words and phrases useful in everyday conversations.

A Business English course tailor-made for your company

I have used my experience working with businesspeople and my knowledge of English to put together a course that will help you and your employees perform confidently and comfortably at the next meeting you have in this language.

This course is based on conversational lessons and designed for working in small groups. In each class, we will talk about one topic that includes new vocabulary, useful phrases and idioms, the necessary grammar rules, and a discussion. The discussion is certainly the most important and most effective part of the class because students learn that talking English doesn’t have to be stressful, get used to expressing their thoughts in appropriate ways and practice understanding.

If meetings, negotiations, and e-mails in English are an everyday part of your business, you are probably aware of the fact that your employees need to get well acquainted with this type of communication.

Some of the topics we cover at this course of Business English are:

  • meetings
  • telephoning
  • presentations
  • negotiations
  • customer support
  • and many others.

Effectiveness

No more wasting your time. You get 60 minutes of effective learning in each class – no more, and no less than that. We won’t spend any additional time, money, or energy on the commute, waiting for students that are late, preparing the room, or cleaning up after the class. The most important assets of your employees are preserved.

Method

Working in small groups allows each student to participate in the discussion, pose a question, or ask for an explanation. The classes are interactive, and regular conversation in English helps students gain confidence in different business situations, which is crucial for effective communication and negotiations.

Simplicity

Classes are held in Zoom, a platform that is very easy to use. The only thing needed to participate is a laptop or a smartphone, and an internet connection. I will send a tutorial for using the platform to all your employees, and I am also available for support and testing before the class if needed.

PDF Materials

After every module (each month), I will send all the students the PDF materials containing all the lessons we have covered, including vocabulary, grammar rules, and thinking questions. Also, depending on your company’s needs, the materials can also include homework, bonus materials, etc.

Feedback

All students receive personalized feedback and pointers for independent practices, as well as tips for improving their weaknesses when it comes to the English language, whether it is their accent, grammar, or vocabulary.

Flexibility

When working online, all the schedule arrangements are much easier, as are rescheduling or even canceling classes if needed. There is no need to book a room, or worry about anything else that doesn’t contribute to the quality of the class.

Facebook group

Community is what matters, and it is what encourages the employees to learn and apply what they have learned. Other than sharing educational, useful, or fun content, we support each other, and I am available to answer any question in real-time.

IMPORTANT: Health

In the light of the current CoVid19 situation, another advantage of online learning is obvious – even quarantine, my classes continued as usual without any problems, and more importantly, without risking potential infection between students and teacher.
