Office Communication

Talking to the world – by e-mail and on the phone

Whether you write your own e-mails or do it for someone else; whether your phone calls are mostly on your own behalf or for your boss: communicating in a foreign language can be quite a challenge when it’s not face-to-face. For many of us, English e-mails and phone calls have become part of everyday work, so it’s worth knowing exactly what to write or say without having to worry about it.

Tell us what types of e-mails you write and what sorts of phone calls you make, and we will design a seminar where you can practise exactly the kind of office communication you need.

Sound confident and professional on the phone:

  • get your message across clearly
  • learn and activate essential telephoning phrases
  • be prepared for standard situations on the phone (e.g. getting connected, leaving messages, handling problems)
  • practise the phone calls you need to make and get feedback on how you did

  • practise writing the e-mails you need to write, get feedback and practical tips for improvement
