You need English for work, but need the basics first. The English for Beginners to Pre-Intermediate Course focuses on teaching you the basics in grammar, verb tenses and sentence structure. We make sure you don't just get the basics, but get the vocabulary and guidance you need to prepare you for basic communication in your job.

Based on your assessment test and the needs analysis form, I develop a training package customized to your individual needs while delivering measurable results.

When working with a business, I work closely with the Human Resources Department on identifying these needs, design customized solutions to meet these needs, and provide detailed progress reports at the end of each month.

At the end of this Basic English Course:

You will have the knowledge and skills to be able to participate in simple conversations in English during different activities related to work or social events, answer and transfer calls, summarily correspond by email, conjugate verbs, present, past and future, structure sentences, ask questions.
