Working professionals today are being expected to excel in spoken and written English. When dealing with clients and top management as well as preparing business documents, English is the official language of business. Being equipped with the right amount of knowledge and skills when it comes to English communication helps in shaping and enhancing one’s career here and abroad.
An employee who wants to improve his English for a more promising job opportunity or promotion or an employer who wants his team to communicate better in English can follow these three steps:
- Ask native English speaking colleagues to do personal or small group coaching. They can also post on the bulletin board a “Word/Quote of the Day” with its meaning/synonyms and antonyms in English or translation in the vernacular.
- Employees should be familiar with English terminologies related to the industry, the company and their duties and responsibilities, and they can use the Internet to research on detailed explanations per term.
- Invest in English grammar lessons or do a self-study a few hours per week using the right materials.
