Business English

If you need to …. 

  • talk to other professionals in your field using special terminology;
  • read professional journals and books published only in Greek;
  • use the internet to gather information on a specific subject;
  • correspond with colleagues on professional subjects;
  • participate in a seminar or workshop;
  • negotiate a project, a contract, the purchase or sale of an item…

…then you need a tailor-made course to make the most of your learning opportunities in the shortest possible time.

These specialized courses are designed on the basis of the communicative needs of company executives and professional people within a contemporary working environment which places upon them a demand for using the language at a satisfactory or even at a very high level to communicate clients, suppliers or associates who do not speak their native language. The English & Modern Greek for Professionals programmes are similar to programmes implemented by top international training institutions around the world.
