Your Intensive English Goals
The specific skills you wish to improve will depend entirely on your work role.
You might need to lead a team from a very different culture, bid for an international contract, or welcome overseas visitors. Your focus might be on developing speaking skills for a presentation or a negotiation, writing work reports, or understanding spoken English.
Whatever your goals, EMB will help you to develop your international business communication skills in English. We are experts in designing and customising Executive Intensive courses to meet the requirements of a vast range of careers.
Your Specific Needs
When you book your Intensive English course, we carry out a thorough needs analysis of your specific learning goals in order to tailor-make your course. We also advise you on the best way to prepare for it.
At the end of your course, we reassess your English language skills and provide you with a comprehensive course report demonstrating the progress you have made. We also advise you on how to consolidate your learning. Progress is aligned to the Common European Framework of Reference Scale and corresponding ‘Can Do’ statements.
