CK English Aulas Particulares de inglês para negocios online no brasil

O inglês que falamos no trabalho muitas vezes pode ser bem diferente do inglês que falamos enquanto socializamos, viajamos ou em casa. Portanto, para melhorar suas habilidades de comunicação para um ambiente de trabalho é preciso estudar, falar, ouvir e escrever em inglês que é comumente encontrado no ambiente de trabalho.

O curso CK English consiste em 3 níveis, começando no Upper-Intermediate e terminando no Advanced. Para fazer esses cursos, você precisa ter pelo menos um nível de inglês B1 ou um nível de inglês CK de 6.

Como todos os cursos da CK English, o foco será na conversação, mas incluirá gramática, leitura, compreensão auditiva, vocabulário e até escrita, se o aluno desejar incluir a escrita. O curso consiste em uma variedade de diferentes tópicos relacionados a negócios, de Marketing e Vendas a Empresas e Lidando com o Estresse.

Abaixo está um exemplo do que você pode esperar encontrar em uma aula de CK Business English, mas lembre-se de que você terá um livro digital que pode ser editado e escrito.
