Workforce English Essentials Course Posted by meaghan on Jul 25, 2023 in For Businesses, For Learners, Learning Material Updates
Don’t let language barriers come between you and your customers.
Get your customer-facing employees conversation-ready ASAP with Workforce English Essentials.
Unlike the typical Business English course, what employees learn is up to you (with help from our tutors if you’d like). No linear course with time wasted on things they already know or don’t need.
Choose from 50 hours of modules to create custom courses for your sales reps, customer service team, and beyond. Even add on your own custom modules as needed to cover your entire workforce.
Workforce English is available now for native speakers of Arabic, Spanish, and Ukrainian in Transparent Language Online.
Upskill relevant topics
Best for English learners at a CEFR B1, Workforce English focuses on upskilling general business English needs as quickly as possible.
The fastest way to improve employees’ proficiency in workplace topics: build vocab. The more words you know, the more you can do and understand in that domain.
Choose from vocab lessons organized into 11 modules:
- At the Office
- Business Travel
- Computers and IT
- Customer Phone Communication
- Giving Presentations
- Job Search
- Professional Conversation
- Professional Writing – Chat
- Professional Writing – Email
- Sales and Prices
All vocab lessons are paired with Arabic, Spanish, or Ukrainian. Having the native language as a reference point helps build vocab quicker. (Need a different language pairing? Let us know.)
Training customer service reps? Go for “Customer Phone Communication”, “Professional Writing – Chat”, and “Professional Writing – Email”.
Training sales staff? Combine “Giving Presentation”, “Negotiating”, “Sales and Prices”, and “Customer Phone Communication.”
Build confidence through immersion
Each module has several immersion lessons that put all those pieces together.
Simulated live chats. Sales calls. Follow-up emails. These real-world tasks provide a realistic English-only test of what they’ve learned.
A scored end of lesson assessment lets both you and your employees measure their progress.
Add on time with a tutor for additional communicative practice that targets their weakest skills and builds the confidence they need to succeed on the job.
Improve faster with a tutor
Our tutors provide a safe place for learners to practice in an even more realistic setting.
Each session builds on what’s been learned in the online lessons. Communicative activities like role playing prepare employees to actually use what they’re learning in real conversations.
