BUSINESS ENGLISH FOR BUSY ENGINEERS

You're an expert in your field, well-known and respected. But there is one nagging problem...

 

As a busy engineer with 5 different projects at the same time, how many times have you sat there and thought to yourself: 

- It's just an email! Why does it take me so long to write it in English?

- I wish there wasn't so much miscommunication in this project—that costs us so much valuable time.

- I wish I could argue as articulate in English as in my mother language.

 

But there's just one - or maybe, a few - problems:

- You haven't found an English course that gives you the personalized advice you need.

- No matter how many online articles you read about Business English, you always end up feeling 'not perfect enough'.

- You don't even know where to start. Grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary. It's all a blur.

- Or maybe even all of the above?

 

Are you sitting there nodding your head or leaning in closer to your screen as you read this, thinking: "umm, Olivia, have you been reading my diary?"

If so, it's time to take a look at our Systems + Solutions.

In my line of work, I am in regular contact with customers. As a result of Olivia's tutoring, my confidence grew, and therefore our customer service significantly improved.

Olivia is not a teacher who's standing in front of me shoving grammar down my throat. It's more like she's looking over my shoulder, helping me every step of the way. It feels more like a coffee break.

Ik heb bij Marcode verschillende soorten Engelse lessen gevolgd en kijk terug op leuke en leerzame lessen. Mijn kennis in de Engelse taal is merkbaar vooruit gegaan. Ik kon zelfs sturing geven aan de lessen waardoor het goed afgestemd was op mijn toepassingen.
