This work­shop is devel­oped espe­cially for non-grammatically inclined staff. There are no bor­ing expla­na­tions or con­fus­ing rules. Instead, we use sim­ple, clear pat­terns that apply to work­place language.

Par­tic­i­pants prac­tise exten­sively with work-related role-plays and group activities.

By the end of the work­shop, par­tic­i­pants will be able to impress their supe­ri­ors, cus­tomers and other stake­hold­ers with greater Eng­lish proficiency.
