Summary

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! 😀

James很親切,會事前發佈講義在群組之中,不過也不用有預習壓力,老師上課時還是會從頭帶領。James會在談話中向學生延伸提問,引導並分配所有學生發言。還會在課堂尾端詢問同學當日記憶最深刻的詞語,幫助大家複習,並且提供他整理好補充的字詞放在群組內。 線上課程上課起來的感受,我會覺得3個人最完美,大家可以很充分講話和隨機提問。5個人算是有點極限,如果想要大家都很充足講話的話。 James上課氣氛很輕鬆,完全不用擔心不敢講,希望之後能開實體課。

James is a really nice and friendly teacher who creates a relaxed atmosphere in learning. He shared a few meeting dialogues for us to learn how to deal with different scenarios in the meetings. He also taught us many practical words, phrases and their synonyms. I highly recommend this informative, useful and interesting class.
