English for Personal Assistants
Working in a fast-paced international environment is always challenging and we believe that English should not be included in that list. Our ESP for Personal Assistants is specifically designed for individuals working in a PA capacity and would like to focus the skills relevant to their position. At Rose of York Language School, we can help students to improve in key areas and help you achieve your goals. Additionally, we can guide and advise students in exam preparation (for example, Cambridge Business – BEC).
This course aims to:
- Enable students to function effectively in a fast-paced business environment
- Develop functional language used in emails, note-taking, reports and phone calls
- Improve the listening skills required when working in a multinational environment
Our teachers, typically, follow a set syllabus. And, students follow along with a course book or materials provided. Each week, students can expect to cover a range of topics and skills. Typically, students will study grammar, reading, writing and vocabulary on a weekly basis.
