The importance of English for Professionals Classes
Despite Singapore being an international hub, with diverse nationalities living and working in Singapore, most business conversations and meetings are conducted in the English language. Your company will surely have talented employees who speak a variety of languages, but some of them will not speak English as a first language. Our courses are customised to help them learn relevant language, and professional skills, so they quickly find their confidence to effectively communicate in the workplace.
Below are the main challenges experienced by students working in an English language working environment.
- Unable to effectively engage during meetings and conferences because of a lack of confidence and practise in speaking in the English language.
- Critical mistakes made during business negotiations, or important policy requirements are not followed, because of miscommunication or misunderstandings.
- Productivity levels are lower because it takes them much longer to write and understand emails, and engage with other forms of communication in the English language.
- They are unaware of foreign business customs and cultures.
How English for Professionals Classes Help Students
- Increased confidence and competence to work in an English language working environment.
- More motivated and they feel like part of the team.
- Increased productivity.

English for native english speakers
Our main aim is to help your employees’ whose first language isn’t English. However, you can also experience significant efficacy gains from your native English language employees learning to adjust their communication style. Below are the main issues that are experienced by native English speakers who communicate to a diverse international audience. They are unaware of the:
- challenges non-native English speakers experience with trying to understand the English language.
- difficulties caused by using verbal and written communications that are lengthy, and use jargon and colloquialisms.
- time that secondary English speakers need to translate from English language to their native language and vice versa, especially while speaking.
- different levels of English ability in a multinational environment.
What our students say:
I am learning business English which can be used in the real business world, e.g., people management, project management, presentations, meetings, and so on. The class content is created from real professional experience gained from several industries, and the knowledge shared is invaluable in everyday working life. The role-play and scenario-based learning used to teach is a very effective way to learn, and is a lot of fun. I recommend these classes to anyone either working, or looking to work in the corporate world, that wants to improve their performance and give themselves an advantage.
Like most students growing up in Korea, I was able to read and write in English, but conversation had always been my weakness. I looked for a language centre which could help bring my conversation to business level, and ULC was the perfect place to achieve my goals.
The teachers from ULC are full of experience and knowledge in various fields, and this enabled me to expand my vocabulary and to speak more formally and confidently. Teachers willingly embraced my suggestions and used the best learning method to suit my needs.
Thanks to ULC, I could not only finish my training program successfully but also gain confidence in English. For anyone who seeks to improve their business English, I highly recommend ULC.
During my English lessons with ULC, I was able to get more practice in speaking and making conversations. My pronunciation, grammar errors, and incorrect expressions were corrected in a friendly yet professional way.
The teachers were very experienced in organising classroom activities to help us get more effective practice. I feel that I have improved my speaking skills using a wide-range of topics. In Business English, I learned a lot of new vocabulary, phrases, and useful expressions, which continue to help me to communicate with my colleagues and customers better.
My teachers were knowledgeable, friendly, and patient when teaching and answering my questions whenever I asked them. ULC’s lessons definitely helped in making me a more confident English speaker.
