Executive Language Training (ELT) Addresses Need for Clear Communication in the Global Business World

Share Article

ELT Business English course responds to the growing global economy by teaching executives the English they need to conduct business.

With the United States' increasingly global economy, small and midsize businesses to fortune 500 companies employ an increasing number of non-native English speakers to managerial positions with more responsibilities. Clear and effective communication in Business English is instrumental to make these non-native English executives successful. Executive Language Training LLC designs customized Business English ESL training programs specifically to address their needs. Unique in its design, the program gives executives and professionals the chance to continue with their everyday business tasks while participating in the program to improve their English for business.

With English as the dominant universal language, more and more companies recognize the importance of their employees having a strong command of the language. Without knowledge of English particular to their fields, business executives struggle with unsuccessful negotiations or meetings, lost deals and the inability to carry out many forms of international business effectively. In addition to oral communication, mastery of written English is also necessary to understand a wide variety of business information, from company emails and reports to economic journals. For these reasons, many businesses are often hesitant to place talented professionals into high-contact fields if those individuals cannot communicate clearly and concisely. "Every day we train a growing number of highly qualified managers, executives and professionals with diverse backgrounds but one common problem: limited English language skills needed to perform and excel in their business environment," says Gina Gramatis, ELT's Training Director. "Most of them are well-trained and highly educated but when it comes to applying their talent and skills to the job, communicating in English is a barrier. Even more important for them, but also for their companies, is the fact that they see themselves as being limited to take their next career step because of their language barrier," Gramatis adds.

General English classes or ESL classes cannot address all the language necessities of business professionals. To help executives successfully communicate with international clients while they also stay on top of their high-demand jobs, ELT develops customized Business English courses. The course's content tailors to the needs of managers, professionals and business executives and focuses on their industry's job-specific vocabulary. ELT students also learn to implement the day-to-day, general business skills necessary to succeed in the work environment. Instead of a typical classroom setting, students are placed in situations in which they can put these skills to work. This immersion process in the class includes making notes or presentations, writing reports, explaining processes, using the phone and negotiating or dealing with problems.

ELT's Business English courses are also customized to work around the participants' work schedules and can be taken at the clients' office / workplace or at an ELT facility. While the course focuses on job-related English, it also helps clients improve in their overall English skills by providing instruction on accent reduction as well. Qualified trainer delivers business English classes to participant's preferred location. One-on-one personalized business English training is by far the most effective way for executives and professionals to improve their language skills and advance their careers.
