Working in English from Home: Business Meetings in the Age of the Remote Office

Content Digital meetings have become even more common through the increased acceptance of web conferencing. But tackling tasks in a group can be additionally demanding when done online – and in English. In this workshop, you'll participate in several challenging meetings, using English to assert your opinion, problem-solve and negotiate. Along the way, you'll learn principles and vocabulary which are valuable in these situations in general, and, by virtue of our digital format, you will also gain practice in participating in and leading meetings online. The workshop's overall goal is to afford you insights and experience which will help you communicate more confidently and effectively in these work-related situations – whether you already work in English in a current job or wish to prepare for your future professional life.

Through class discussions, pair-work, group exercises, role-plays and a simulation, you will have frequent opportunities for spoken practice. The workshop is held in English by a native speaker, and participation requires an intermediate level of English or above.
