Children, teenagers, and adults also practice pronunciation, grammar, listening, reading, and writing skills so that they can understand and talk with other people more easily.

Business and Industry Services

Vocational English Language Training’s communication skills training and educational programs are used by businesses, non-profits, and other organizations.

For quality and top performance, employees and potential hires may need basic communication skills.

Basic skills training is given privately or to groups of employees in a classroom setting or on-line.

The firm offers short courses and learning opportunities.  Courses for ESL employees include accent development and correction, business terms, and using references.  There are other courses on American workplace values and practices.

Language training at work is often matched with home study and instruction by the tutor.  This approach is especially useful for employees with minimal English skills.
