British Council English for the Workplace course is open

English is essential if you want to get ahead in today’s fast-paced global economy, and because using English at work is different from general, conversational English, this free course has been specifically designed with your working life in mind.

This free course is perfect for people who are learning English and who are interested in developing English language skills to help them secure a better job. It is also suitable for young professionals at the beginning of their careers looking to improve their language skills.

Each week, the course will focus on key aspects of English for the workplace. You’ll watch videos and listen to audio recordings of people searching and applying for jobs, preparing for interviews, taking interviews, starting their new job, and working with new colleagues. The experienced tutors will examine some of the language used and will draw your attention to useful points that will help you improve your English in workplace contexts.

The course does not follow a language syllabus but takes workplace English as its starting point, and offers functional language phrases and real, authentic workplace scenarios. Short quizzes and discussions will help you measure your understanding and practise your English.

Throughout the course you’ll be asked to share your opinions, ideas and questions with other learners. The best way to get the most out of the course is to be prepared to join in and share your experiences.

English for the Workplace course is extremely flexible and will only take up to two hours of your time per week, over a period of four weeks, so you can practise at any time that suits you. You can sign up from now until the very last day of the course.
