ProActive English provides Business English training for Business Professionals in knowledge industries and for employees in manufacturing and hospitality organizations. Success means program participants communicate about their work more confidently and engage more effectively leading to greater productivity. We tailor our Business English Communication and 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 need to learn how 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 present a few slides clearly and concisely, and engage in extended dialog with Q&A while comparing and contrasting theory and real-world practice.

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

These are just three examples.  A training program at your company will differ due to different industry content and the communication practices at your company.
