English for Personal Assistants and Secretaries – ELC-Z
English Language Centre

This is a 2-week course of 30 lessons per week (22.5 hours) with a maximum of 8 participants. Each course is designed by the trainer to meet the needs of its participants and is therefore a unique package, targeted to improve business performance in English. There is a focus on written and spoken communication skills such as making arrangements, planning and organising business events and handling correspondence. Trainers use presentations, case studies, workshops and role-play simulations. Some sessions are filmed for detailed analysis and feedback. Use of our computerised Language Laboratory focuses on pronunciation and intonation and participants have free access to our self-study centre outside their lesson times. Recommended for: Personal Assistants and secretaries who use, or will need to use English in their daily job.

effectively in the business areas that were focussed on. The course is based on a detailed Needs Analysis that begins prior to arrival and is reviewed continuously throughout the two weeks. The content is therefore flexible, but a typical course will include:
