Stand-alone Module -10 hrs (1 or 2 weeks) €375
Good Communication is about understanding your audience and their expectations. If you’re having difficulty with conversations, meetings or building relationships with English first language speakers, it may not be a language issue but more a style of communication issue. Different cultures have different values or norms concerning how best to express yourself in the language of that culture. For example, Italians are not bothered by the number of words you use to express something whereas English speakers value word efficiency.
In this module you will study and use Best Practice Principles for English Communicaton with reference to key differences from your own first language.
