Business Communication Skills

Through class discussions, simulations of meetings and negotiations, and in-class presentations, trainees will develop fluency in functional English used in professional situations, such as telephone, conference calls, business meetings, negotiations and presentations.

Topics will include business etiquette, networking, leadership and management styles. Grammar, pronunciation, and vocabulary will be addressed in the context of lessons as needs and interests dictate. Trainees are encouraged to bring in job, industry specific, or career- related materials to customize their activities and participation in course work to match their own needs and interests.

We offer this course at our New York City, Midtown, and Westchester locations. The Business Communication Skills class will consist of seven meetings on Wednesdays from 6:30pm – 8:30pm.
