Course Overview

Enhanced communication skills in English can afford you better job opportunities in the future. From job interviews to the actual professional world, communication skills are very crucial, and being proficient in English means being able to communicate clearly and effectively.

What will I learn?

In job interviews, most interviewers conduct interviews in English. Interviewers quickly make judgments and give great importance to first impressions. Poor skills in the language can mean smaller chances of securing a job. On the other hand, being proficient in the language can help one leave a good first impression which means higher chances of getting the position one is applying for. English is the most commonly used language in the business world.

The four common language skills are listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Mastering these skills could make you a more thoughtful communicator who understands the needs of those around you. In the workplace, effective communication is vital to achieving goals. You will need to develop each of these language skills to assist with your workplace communications.

This course in basic English is an excellent way to practice for these literacy communication skills.
