Foreign-Born Professionals Will Discover How to Speak Clearly, Express Their Ideas and Communicate Effectively

Intensive Speech Training for Foreign-Born Professionals

Not mastering the English language can seriously hinder foreign-born professionals’ ability to fully contribute their talents and skills. They need to increase their command of English, allowing them to speak with greater clarity and participate more substantively in discussions and presentations.

The issue: how to effectively improve these language skills without losing large blocks of valued employees’ time.

The solution: shorter, immersion-styled programs

BRODY’s Intensive English for Foreign-Born Professionals delivers — using a short series of intensive, highly focused sessions with complete support. Participants achieve the ability to communicate with greater comfort and confidence, leading to improved capacity to express and convey their ideas and fully contribute their talents.

• Modulate their speaking rate and enunciate clearly
• Construct and articulate intelligible sentences and questions that reflect positively upon them and what they have to say
• Organize coherent verbal and written communication about data, results, processes and more, consistent with American business convention and style
• Participate with greater confidence because they’ll feel at home
