Ministry for English runs language workshops to help you and your employees approach international business dealings free of anxiety. Our teaching blocks include phoning, introductions, small talk, face-to-face meetings, idioms, cultural interaction and the language of problem solving. In addition, we offer presentation training to help you overcome the challenge of connecting with an audience in English. Ministry for English also provides wide-ranging writing, editing, proofreading and transcribing services for websites, print adverts, business plans, memos, presentations, professional documents, brochures, letters and speeches.
Ministry for English training builds self-confidence. Our emphasis is on getting you to talk in English as much as possible with the aim of making you the best communicator you can be. Coaching sessions are far removed from a typical classroom situation because we seek to create an atmosphere that makes learning fun. We use intelligent games and role-playing connected to everyday scenarios. We cater to groups or professional individuals – from beginner to expert level. You may want to provide regular in-house training to your employees or prepare yourself for a business meeting abroad. Whatever your requirements, we will provide coaching to remove the embarrassment of being tongue-tied amongst native English speakers.
Speaking to an audience in your non-native tongue can be very stressful. You can know your subject inside out, but if your public delivery is not up to scratch, then you will come across as poorly prepared or ill-informed. This often means people approach presentations or speaking to camera with a sense of doom, rather than viewing it as an occasion to show their competence. Our training enables you to confidently deliver the correct English words and phrases for the moment. We help you navigate the many Dos and Don’ts of addressing an audience and assist you in turning potential disaster into consummate success.
A properly revised document demonstrates a company’s professionalism and shows its readiness to engage in global business. The purpose of this service is to improve the flow of writing, raising it to an exceptional level of presentation. We conduct a comprehensive review of your documentation in British or American Standard English. In short, we check and change: style, grammar, sentence structure, spelling, repetition and idiom. If you are hoping to enhance your reputation as a global business, then our editing/proofreading service is here to help you.
The most important aspect of writing is capturing and maintaining the interest of a reader. This has never been truer in an age of shortened attention spans. Ministry for English delivers immediately engaging and informative texts, regardless of the medium. We are able to achieve this through a combination of discipline and style – the former we learnt, the latter found us over time. Our expertise in writing is based on years of experience writing for TV, radio, film and the Internet. Whatever your field of business, whether you need formal or informal language, we create works of lasting impact.
English-speaking countries and their range of regional dialects and accents make it difficult for non-native speakers to transcribe audio recordings. In addition, there are place names, cultural references, idioms and local phrases that create further problems. The result is that challenging transcriptions can be time-consuming, inaccurate, and ultimately, rather costly. Ministry for English has experience in dealing with English-speaking people from all over the world – including the United States, Canada, Africa, New Zealand, Australia the Caribbean. We have travelled and worked extensively in many English-speaking countries, giving us a significant advantage when carrying out transcriptions.
