Business English course: 1-to-1 conversation with a foreigner trainer

Private English lessons for office, workplace, trade and commerce in Hong Kong

This business English course is for office employees, sales people, merchandisers, company owners, entrepreneurs and managers who already can communicate in English but want to further improve their fluency, language accuracy, understanding and oral presentation skills.

These English classes are also useful for you if you want to improve your professional skills like leadership, marketing, finance, decision making, hiring and firing employees, business management, presentation and negotiation, training, coaching and mentoring, finance and investment.

Just as in everyday English, in business English you need to master listening, speaking and using grammar and pronunciation correctly. The only difference between the general daily English and business English is the additional, business and commerce related topics and vocabulary.

Business English workshop

This is a business English conversation course and we do not focus on writing but rather the oral language elements. However, we can discuss writing strategies and how to improve your thinking and creativity for writing. That is, we can talk about the content side and not the style or spelling side.

You can find more information about some of the topics in our other web sites that are directly linked from this web site.
