English for International Projects

Clear communication for complex projects

 

Language seminar goals

It’s a fact of business life today that more and more of us work in international project teams. Many of us are involved in projects where four, five, six or more nationalities are represented. Typically, we have to work together closely to deliver results and meet tight deadlines.

Our English for International Projects language seminar will help you discuss and report on key project topics with clarity, accuracy and a broader vocabulary. You will practise talking about goals, project plans, resources, costs and handling deadlines in face-to-face meetings as well as in simulated telephone conferences.

Our aim is to help you work optimally with a mix of colleagues, whether they are native speakers or using English as a bridge language.

Content

A typical two-day programme covers a selection of the following topics:

  • Describing timeframes and benchmarks

  • Using diplomatic language
  • Working with common communication challenges
  • Handling teleconferences, video conferences and remote teams in English
  • Using appropriate vocabulary and tone

The small group size (3–6 participants) allows for individual feedback and maximises speaking time.
