English for Engineers

English for Engineers is  a  2-week  course  of  30  lessons  per  week  (22.5  hours)  with  a  maximum  of  8  participants.  Each  course  is  designed  by  the  trainer  to  meet  the  needs  of  its  participants  and  is  therefore  a  unique  package,  targeted  to  improve  business  performance  in  English. 

There  is  a  focus  on  using  English  in  your  daily  work  and  on  communication skills for engineers: eg. describing processes and performance, discussing technical drawings, explaining complex ideas. Trainers  use  presentations,  case  studies,  workshops  and  role-play  simulations.  Some  sessions  are  filmed  for  detailed  analysis  and  feedback. 

By  the  end  of  the  course  you  will  be  able  to  use  English  more  confidently  in  your  daily  work  and  communicate  more  effectively in the technical and business areas that were focussed on. The course is based on a detailed Needs Analysis that begins prior to arrival and is reviewed continuously throughout the two weeks.

The content is therefore flexible, but a typical course will include:

  • Discussion skills and participating in meetings
  • Explaining complex ideas and giving technical instructions
  • Making presentations
  • Telephoning and e-mailing
  • Technical writing
The school has an exclusive centre where the courses for professionals take place.
