Description

This course helps you build the technical English and business communication skills you need to succeed as an engineer. Your are working with clients and co-workers across the world, perhaps with a supplier in China, a client in Brazil, or a co-worker in Germany. The lessons and quizzes in this course help you communicate effectively in English. 

Start with the technical language you need. You will build the vocabulary and grammar that are common for engineers, giving you the ability to talk about all the parts of your job, for example, describing a product, discussing maintenance, or reporting changes.  

You will also develop the business communication skills required for anyone in the global economy. This includes topics like delivering presentations, writing emails, or speaking in meetings. This gives you the ability to communicate across departments with strong ckills in reading, writing, speaking, and listening.

You will also work on the common English functions for engineers, such as giving instructions or explaining a process. Be prepared next time you need to complete a task in English.

More than just language, you will develop strategies for polite communication. Learn how to work with others, including working in teams or managing conflict. It is especially important for engineers to learn to communicate with non-technical employees. 

Overall, this course gives you the language skills and strategies you need for professional success as an engineer. When you are done you will be more confident and more prepared to handle the challenges you face in the workplace.
