We optimise your business English

Our Business English Coaching is ideally suited for busy professionals and teams with a need for professional business English and who need to communicate appropriately beyond their existing English level.

We know that available time is precious and often scarce. Therefore Davies Business English, with the 'Personal Accelerated Learning' concept, has developed a way to convey the professional English which really helps you in an English-speaking business world - in the shortest time. We put you in the position to master speeches convincingly, conduct business meetings competently and give presentations with self confidence.

With Davies Business English you have a native speaker with many years of experience in Business English training. In addition to individual coaching, we also offer trainings for teams. We customise all content to your desired topics. Talk to us, together we will raise your Business English to a very professional level - personalised and efficient.

Why we are different

The Davies Business English learning concept goes far beyond that of conventional English courses. With us, you or your employees receive personal, intensive coaching. Thus successes are a lot faster. We do not give ordinary courses with standardised lessons.

We focus solely on efficient training of English for business purposes. You will benefit from the experience of a native speaker with a business background and you will not waste your time learning content which is not relevant.

Your coaching is planned with you right from the beginning with topics, grammar and vocabulary that meet your specific needs - exactly the English that you will use when you return to work.

Our coaching takes place in the ideal situation for you to concentrate on the language. This can be at your workplace, or for even better focus, on Mallorca away from the job. We prepare you for your short intensive training so that you know what to expect, and we follow up with regular updates so that you can continue to make progress even after the training.

Companies who have put their trust in us include...

From words to phrases 2

 

Continuing from last week’s post on words that go together well, one of the areas of vocabulary that is often not very strong is the use of adjectives and adverbs. Firstly, let’s be clear what the difference is between the two as they are used in English. An adjective is used to modify (usually to describe) something or someone, whereas an adverb is used to modify (or give more information about) everything else - verbs, clauses, adjectives, other adverbs and adverbial phrases and give information about place, manner, time, circumstances, degree or cause.

Knowing this isn’t essential but it can help when choosing the right form. For example, ‘slow’ is an adjective and would describe something like a train -...

From words to phrases

 

A lot of clients have the initial objective of building their vocabulary because they often find themselves in a situation where they can’t ‘find the word they are looking for’. This breaks the fluency of their speech and can make them feel a little embarrassed. As we go forwards, we discover that this is not the whole problem. Simply learning more words does not help them as much as they had hoped because individual words on their own are not always that useful. We don’t just communicate in single words. Sometimes it happens, especially in informal situations such as ‘Coffee?’, which would probably mean ‘Would you like a cup of coffee?’ However, in business conversations it is usually necessary...

How long does it take to learn English?

 

A friend of mine was recently talking about applying for a new job and one of the requirements was to have English level B2 or higher. But what does that mean? His English is pretty good although he is not a native speaker and I could have written a letter saying that he has that level but I thought it would be better if he did a formal test and obtained a certificate.

The level B2 refers to one of the six levels described in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) and you can find descriptions of the levels for self assessment purposes, in various languages, here: https://www.coe.int/en/web/common-european-framework-reference-languages/table-2-cefr-3.3-common-reference-levels-self-assessment-grid

Of course, if you need to achieve a...

Capacity Planning

 

This week, I would like to draw your attention to one of my favourite podcasts called Business Anchors Podcast by Dan and Lloyd Knowlton who run a video and social media marketing agency in southeast England called, appropriately, Knowlton.

I really like the podcast because it is both informative and funny. You might also like to follow them on LinkedIn and watch some of their videos which are also very funny.

Today, I want to highlight episode 94 of the podcast which you can find here https://knowltonmarketing.co.uk/capacity-planning/ with a transcript so you can listen, read and look up any vocabulary or phrases that are not familiar to you. You can message me and ask me if there is...

English - old or modern?

 

Recently, my friend and colleague, Chris Bate, posted on LinkedIn about ‘business buzzwords that are fashionable at the moment’, asking for opinions and 37% of respondents to the survey said they were ‘annoying but necessary’, 31% said they ‘explain complex ideas’ and another 31% chose the option ‘meaningless rubbish’. Opinion seems fairly evenly divided.

I made the comment that language, including business language, changes and develops with time. I suspect this is true of all languages, especially with developments in technology that need new ways to name and describe them.

Some languages have an ‘official school’ or other authority that decides what is correct and what is not but did you know that there is no ‘official’ English...
