Language for Working Internationally

 

Introducing you to International English and looking at how we can make our written and spoken communication as clear as possible so that clients with other first languages can more easily engage with us.

 

This session will cover:

  • Language and Communication: Key concepts.
  • Communicating Internationally: How to do this well.
  • English for International Business: Areas to understand and adapt, including grammar, vocabulary, and communication styles.

 

The session will be a combination of training delivery, hands-on activities, and time for reflection and planning. The session will be engaging and interactive, with practical examples and useful tips to take away.

 

Attendees will leave the session with:

  • A solid understanding of communication systems and styles, and how to communicate clearly across linguistic barriers.
  • The ability to quickly and easily adapt their own language, both written and spoken, to enable clearer communication with those who have other first languages.
  • Examples of this and a plan to edit and improve communications within their businesses.
