English is your golden ticket

Category : English coaching , Training

Good English gives you access to more jobs, better opportunities and more international contacts.

But what is ‘good’ English? Does it mean bilingual? Does it mean fluent or do you just need enough English to ‘get by’ (to be understood)?

golden ticketIt depends on what you want to do. I believe good English means enough English to communicate effectively in your day to day life. This means you should focus on skills not grammar.

For example, if you want to apply for a job in a company where English is spoken, you need to make sure your CV is translated perfectly into English. Then you need to practice interviews in English and to learn the phrases you will need to ask and answer questions about the job. You will also need some social English to be able to meet people and introduce yourself in different situations.

If you need to do business in English by phone or face-to-face, you will need to focus on skills such as social English, arrangements, meetings, negotiations and presentations. And if you just want to travel to a country where English is spoken, you’ll need to learn how to book tickets, arrange holiday accommodation, ask for directions etc.

This skills based approach to learning is what we do at english cup of tea. We offer 1-2-1 training to help you learn English skills for different situations. It’s more interesting because you only learn the English you want and need. It’s more effective because it’s personalised. And it’s more flexible because you can learn when and where you want.
