ESL Training by Industry

Traditional and emerging industries have diverse training needs

Learn how our training is modified for different industries:  

ProActive English provides Business English training for Business Professionals in knowledge industries and for employees in manufacturing organizations. Success means program participants can communicate about their work more confidently and engage more effectively – leading to greater productivity. We adjust our Business English / ESL training modules by industry to meet the needs of client companies and the needs of program participants.

What does this mean in practice?

  • A software developer on an Agile team in Seattle shares an update at a scrum meeting with five other non-native English speakers. They must learn to present information in small chunks and respond to technical questions precisely and confidently.

  • A market researcher in Beijing offers data analysis for thirty colleagues on a conference call discussing an emerging AI application. They must learn to engage in extended dialog, discussing and comparing theory and real-world practice.

  • Chemists from a Japanese chemical company in Oregon serving their client, Intel, must learn to describe chemical solutions and periodic elements with clear pronunciation while learning American expressions and meeting behaviors to manage the expectations of a demanding client.

Training programs designed for any of these companies will differ due to differing industry content and communication demands.
