CorporateThe Oxford English Academy (OEA) has the ability to create customized corporate programs and can provide quality English training and development that you need in your workplace. We will be more than happy to come to your site.
This program features corporate English classes tailored to the specific needs of your company and employees, including :
1. Telephone Techniques
2. Interviewing Skills
5. Business Correspondence
6. Business English
7. Business English Conversation
and other areas which we determine through a needs analysis done with the assistance and consultation with your Human Resources department.
Entry-level students may work on basic communication skills, including giving professional business introductions, doing simple presentations, interaction with customers, giving and receiving simple instructions, vocabulary specific to the worksite, communication with supervisors, and day-to-day conversation with co-workers.
Upper level students may work on giving professional presentations, doing negotiations, business protocols, honing networking skills, report writing and other social English, telephone communication, business writing and reading letters of complaint, delegating meetings, and completing paperwork.
All levels can have the dual focus on work-related English skills and general survival English skills.
Before classes begin, participants will be evaluated and placed in groups according to their skill level. Both supervisors and students will be asked for input as to the needs of the students (explained as a pre-course needs analysis above) so that these can be met in the design of the course. At the end of the course, supervisors will receive a written evaluation of their employees' progress. The course can be designed to improve any or all English skill areas: listening, speaking, reading, writing and grammar.
We use communicative approach, emphasizing oral communication over other skill areas. Other primary skill areas are listening and writing, though those are done as an addendum to an oral communication exercise. Most written work will be completed at home and integrated into the lessons on the following day. Students can expect to do a few hours of homework each week, both reading, writing and reviewing concepts covered in the class.
