Part 1, Classes 1-4, Meetings:
“Meetings” is the main theme, because that’s where so many scenarios occur, such
as hosting, problem-solving, persuading colleagues, brainstorming, small talk, initiating action- based outcomes and so on.
So we’ll be doing a few meeting dialogues, where you can learn useful words and phrases to deal with all these classic meetings scenarios.
We’ll take it step by step from meeting kick-off, to dealing with interruptions and keeping focused, and so on, and also learning a lot of rich phrases like “on a side note” and “it’s rather a pressing matter” etc.
Please note that Meetings also include Con-calls.
Part 2, Classes 5-8, Presentations:
If you enjoyed Meetings, then please join us for Part 2, Presentations. Presentations are a huge part of meetings, so we’ll be learning and practicing useful Presentation Structures for 3 kinds of presentations:
• Simple Presentation Structure (a “list of persuasive reasons”)
• Procedural Presentation Structure. (Steps taken to solve a problem) • Status Update / Progress Report Structure
As usual we’ll also be learning many presentation words and phrases such as “not to mention”, “that said”, and “subsequently”.
Transitional words and phrases like “that brings us to” and “nevertheless” are also a must.
Part 3, Classes 9-12, General Work English:
For this part, we’ll be covering all the other common areas that we all need to deal with, like emails, working to a deadline, small- talk for relationship- building, as well as taking specific student requests... for example, negotiating, dealing with customer complaints and so on.
We’ll also be learning a lot of really useful general work phrases, like “off the top of my head”, “a quick heads-up” and “take a rain check”, etc.
Everyone would have studied very hard up to this point, so we can also have some fun by reviewing meetings through Humorous Meeting Dialogues and a crash course on “How to be a More Charming English Communicator.”
Join this course and “up-skill” your English now! 😀
I'll send you the lesson a day early so you can preview if you want. The lesson will include customized materials about meetings, presentations and general corporate English.
