Who is this Course For?
It is for managers, executives and other key personnel who need training in English as part of their company's strategy for implementing its business plan and meeting its targets. Companies normally send a number of selected employees on this programme; either a number each year or a prescribed number over a single pre-arranged period. However, training is sometimes provided for one individual. EJO works very closely with companies in preparing, monitoring and evaluating these courses.
What Happens During Training?

Our host teachers are carefully selected for their skills and for their ability to deliver this type of training. Many have had careers in business or a relevant profession.

The programme normally combines systematic and rigorous training to develop the trainee's competence and confidence in using English with a specialist component.

The specialist component normally runs in parallel. This is obviously determined by individual company requirements and is planned in detail before the start.

We use up to date training resources totally relevant to the needs of the individual programme.

What Kind of Areas do you offer specialist training in?

Examples of training in specialist areas of English that EJO has provided for companies are:

  • Introducing the company's product to the market
  • Making presentations in English
  • Negotiating contracts
  • Telephone calling and telephone sales
  • Buying and selling in the investment world
  • Preparing briefs, specifications and reports
  • Preparing instruction manuals
  • Developing English skills for teaching or instructing in specialist fields

However, the requirements of individual companies differ considerably and there are, of course, many other possible specialist component areas which may be asked for.

The daily routine and timetable is obviously discussed between you and your host and depends on your needs and the specific language areas you wish to focus on. As an example, a typical weekday on a twenty-hour-per week course might be the following:
