This project was co-financed by the European Social Fund and the state budget of the Czech Republic.

Be able to speak and understand English in your branch!

The largest obstacle for receiving an interesting work position for many applicants is poor knowledge of foreign language which is necessary at the workplace.

Although they used to learn the language in the past during the time they lost the ability to communicate and on top of that they never had a proper source of vocabulary and phrases from their branch.

How many times did it happen that the employee had to refuse the foreign business trip because he wasn´t sure whether he is able to speak English well?

And how many mistakes were made because of the misunderstanding of the professional terminology?

How many times you were late with sending an e-mail to a foreign customer because you had to find every second word in a dictionary?

And how many people in your office is able to answer a telephone when they hear an English-speaking voice?

"We don´t need our employees to speak in the language courses about general conversation topics like weather, family or leisure time. We would really appreciate if they could use the special language and would be able to use it in practice immediately," say more and more frequently HR specialists of the companies.
