The need for training

Business English  is the working language of many service companies today and is required for proper understanding and drafting of contracts, correspondence and other documents, meetings, telephone, e-mail, presentations and negotiations. This specialization and requirement also creates the need for training in this field.

The courses are progressive steps towards achieving the English business language standard required by employers, such as international law firms, auditing and accounting firms, marketing departments, human resources, financial institutions and other related fields where vocational training is required for working in the business world.
