the work environment. The course can be taken at three different levels -
elementary, intermediate and advanced.
English for Import-Export Companies (40 hours)
Dealing with foreign companies in an international environment
inevitably involves communicating in 'their' language which is usually English.
Modern forms of communication have given rise to the immediacy of cheap and
reliable ways of doing business. Being able to communicate by telephone, fax,
letter and especially e-mail is imperative in the global market place. Our
basic course is adapted to your own company situation, using real-time and

English for the Hotel and Tourism
Industry (40 hours)
In order to provide a high level of service, employees
of hotel and travel companies must be able to communicate effectively and
politely in the language of their customers. This module recognises the particular
language needs of hotel and tourism employees and trains them to respond appropriately
to the situations which arise in their professional lives.
A wide range of topics are covered which are relevant to
all employees in the hotel or tourism industry. If employees from the same
departments study in the same groups then special attention can be given to
the situations that they encounter in those departments. This is done by spending
more time on certain parts of the textbook and by using additional materials
when required. If employees from different departments study together then
the module will be more general and will cover all areas but in less detail.
This module can be taken at elementary to advanced level.
English for Trade Fairs (40 hours)
For many companies, trade fairs are the most effective way
of finding new customers. Being successful at a trade fair does not just depend
on having a good product. It also depends on dealing with potential customers
effectively. This involves having the necessary language and sales skills.
This module, unique among language schools in Bangkok, focuses specifically
on preparing employees to be more effective at trade shows. It covers topics
such as greeting guests; describing products; explaining sales procedures,
such as trial orders; making small talk; feeling confident; dealing with difficult
customers and sales techniques.

as the recording of their business ideas in the writing of letters, memos
and reports in English. The participants will have a chance to practice both
writing and reading skills. Students are encouraged to use real life business
communications that they use every day in the format that is applicable. Sample
material on computer disc is provided to give students easy access to their
study materials. Checking of homework and class work by e-mail is a new feature
of this course which is proving very popular with students and teachers alike.
Complete E-mail (20 hours)

course covers much more and goes into detail about using e-mail and the most
popular e-mail programs like Outlook, Outlook Express and Eudora.

staff members; dealing with paperwork and correspondence. Two levels are offered
on this course (elementary and intermediate).

in wasted time due to misunderstandings and wasted re-contacts.
Keyman (20 hours+)
Business English for senior management and executives. At
last a course that recognises the special needs of the busy executive. There
is no set course syllabus. A lengthy pre-course interview ensures maximum
effectiveness in targeting the important language areas to be improved and
the situations in which it will be used. Flexibility in class scheduling allows
for the easing of that age old problem 'how to fit in the time for study.'
Business Presentations (20 hours)
Presenting your product or service, whether to a large meeting
or in an office situation, needs special skills. Often these are the same
skills required of a teacher. Preparation of your presentation and preparation
of the language you will need will give you that extra confidence to make
a good job of your next important showing.
Business Meetings (20 hours)
Conducting or participating in important business meetings
are often daunting tasks. Even more so when one is doing it in a second language.
Preparation is all important. Knowing what you are going to say and anticipating
what will be said by the other parties. This course deals in with both preparation
and execution and involves lots of role playing of different types of meetings.
Sales & Marketing (40 hours)
Marketing and Sales are two aspects of the corporate world
that have great influence and indeed serve to control almost every part of
a company’s activities. In an ever increasing English speaking business environment
getting the message across and closing sales is more important than ever.
This course comprehensively covers various aspects of marketing and sales:
Market research - Planning a market research campaign - Designing questionnaires
- Analysing results - Applying marketing principles - Promotion and advertising
- Sales meetings - Arranging and conducting sales meetings and sales demonstrations.
Customer Service (40 hours)
This course is designed to familiarise staff of all levels
with the concepts of customer care. Identifying who the customers are and
what their needs and expectations are allows companies to not only satisfy
these needs but to excel. Dealing with complaints is given a totally new approach
- how to deal with problems so effectively that the complainant turns into
a loyal and repeat customer.
