Experienced English teacher, Mike specialises in teaching English to adults from all over the world. He also teaches French and Spanish and has a successful Udemy course which has attracted many students from all around the world.
Following a course at college he recently taught on English used at work (Apr 2022), he decided to take this course online because of the feedback he had from many of his students. So many said that it helped them feel more confident about the way they saw their work. And their ability to express themselves better around the topic of work.
How will this course be structured?
The course will be divided into 4 clear sections.
Section 1 – working life – Talking about work, what you like / dislike / plans for the future / what skills you have to bring to a job – both hard and soft and how to come across well at Interview – to land the job you really want to do!
Section 2 – Communication skills at work- this section will be all about how to effectively communicate with your colleagues. We look at how powerful and effective it is to be a good communicator when you want to give your opinion on something / explain things/ presenting ideas and so on.
Section 3 – we look at one specific area where language is critical and this is customer service. You’ll hear examples of good and bad customer service and real scenarios to help you put into practice the tips that I share with you.
Finally, in Section 4, we look at certain behaviours at work – mindset, motivation and creative thinking and how these can be super helpful in shaping the way we act at work and view work, so we can feel more engaged, more alive and have a better chance of enjoying our work!
