The Language Key offers a number of courses aimed at senior managers and executives which are a blend of soft skills and specific aspects of language.

We provide fully qualified, professional, trainers who are experts in their field and have numerous years of soft-skills training experience for companies around the world. Most programmes are designed to be delivered in one day, generating maximum impact in the shortest time.

They are delivered in workshop format with coaching, peer feedback, role-play and mock scenarios.

The following programmes are currently offered:

 

  Pronunciation

 

Reduce your accent and sound more native. Understand the phonetic alphabet (IPA) and how it relates to pronunciation. The programme focuses on those areas of English pronunciation that Chinese speakers have problems with, such as final sounds, word stress, linking words and listening to natural fast speech. This is perfect for elementary to pre-intermediate speakers.

 

  Accent Reduction, Fluency & Pronunciation

 

This programme will introduce and develop key English pronunciation techniques, will help you master pronunciation and intonation through drills and practice, and help identify and address pronunciation difficulties Cantonese speakers of English usually encounter. This is a more advanced programme, but based on the Pronunciation programme.

 

  Public Speaking

 

The programme provides you with the foundations to deliver an effective speech (formal or informal) in English. You will learn the basic language and techniques to be able to stand in front of an audience and deliver a presentation in English with a great amount of self-confidence.

 

  Cross Cultural Awareness

 

The programme helps you to understand the differences in attitude between Chinese and Western people. It will give you a range of go-to topics to discuss when meeting for the first time, so that conversations are natural. In addition, it will help to build confidence when speaking to Westerners.

 

  CV Writing & Job Interview Skills Preparation

 

The programme provides you with the foundations to prepare a powerful CV/ Resume that will impress your potential employer. It also provides the basic language and techniques to be able to conduct an interview in English as an interviewee with self-confidence. You will understand clearly what employers are looking for in the modern workplace, learn how to create a winning CV, and practice your interview responses.

 

  Presenting Ideas with Power & Impact

 

The programme provides you with an introduction to language for cause and effect, as well as helping with intonation and flow of language. It will let you learn to describe trends and data in speech when giving short presentations (reporting / progress updates) in the workplace. It consists of lots of role-play practice and feedback from your trainer, prefect for those who prefer practice over theory.
