21st Century Communication Skills: English for Professional Communication | Course Introduction

Future Learning believes that all learners choose to study English for a purpose and our courses are designed with a sense of that purpose; personal, social, professional and academic. Future Learning also emphasises the importance of learner autonomy, and our courses invite the learner to take responsibility for their progress, help them to develop their learning skills and the ability to develop themselves.

Future Learning’s Adult Course is divided into three stages according to English language level. At each stage, the exit criteria are those specified in the relevant Integrated Skills Exam (ISE) for ILEP purposes by Trinity College London.

Stage 2 English for Professional Communication – Levels B1 to B2

Learner Profile

The second stage is designed for professionals who are interested in developing their spoken and written communication skills in an international and technology-enhanced environment. The aim is to equip participants to communicate effectively in English in order to be able to progress professionally. Living as a global citizen many opportunities can arise in international technology companies who employ multinational teams to service global markets in the first language. The language of coordination and management in these companies is majority English. However, and in order to progress in your career you need to be able to present yourself well and communicate effectively in that language. Effective communication is about more than just the language, it is about engagement with the culture of the company in an appropriate way.

Learner Outcomes at B2

By the end of the course, participants will have

  • improved the communication, collaboration, creative problem solving, and critical thinking skills to enable them to do the following in English and through technology in personal and professional contexts;
  • understood the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of professional specialisation
  • interacted with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular professional interaction with first language speakers quite possible without strain for either party
  • produced clear, detailed text on a wide range of professional subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options

Course: Stage 2 - English for Professional Communication

My course at school was not just to learn a new language, but to learn new cultures, people and do things I had never done before. All of this is a very interesting concept that made me learn much more than I expected. I can say that my time at Future Learning was a great experience for me!
