Micro & Macro English:  Strategic Communication Skills for Professionals

 

 

 

 

For high-level professionals, basic communication ability is not enough.  It is not going to be effective or get results.  The final step of a learning a language is to learn how to use it strategically.  Being able to use English strategically means that you understand two things: Schemata (Soft Skills) in cooperation with Linguistics (Language Skills).  Understanding Schemata means you understand the function of the language, and Linguistics means you understand how to create your sentences based on grammar, structure, and syntax.  This program combines both.  Therefore, all participants will be introduced to the micro and the macro of English which is a combination of soft skills and language skills.  When both concepts are understood, that’s when you can use English strategically.

The participants should have at least a pre-intermediate level of English.


My Greatest Mistake:  A Story of Love and Loss

The Sound of English
