Are you a non-native English speaker working for an English-speaking company? If so, then this course is for you.
When you write business correspondence or documents or communicate with your foreign colleagues in English you can be at a disadvantage because you are writing or speaking in a foreign language. Even if you have been taught English well– you may not have learned the subtleties and nuances of communicating well in a business environment. Your knowledge of punctuation and grammar rules, on the other hand, is probably better than many of your English colleagues!
This course will give you the skills to communicate with confidence in English and improve the perception your colleagues and clients have of your abilities.
Upon completion of the training the participants will be able to demonstrate the following competencies:
Practical Email &Report Writing Skills 工作邮件&报告写作
