The successful art of communication is a necessary skill in today’s world. The ELICOS English courses at the COE are tailored to provide a platform of extensive English comprehension in all areas-whether it is writing, listening, reading and speaking.
English is important- whether it is to simply share opinions and your viewpoint with others or to excel in a job interview.
The basics of communication are important but when you dive in deep to why mastering the English language is important it goes well beyond talking about the weather and what to order at a restaurant.
Quite simply to communicate effectively, means a whole set of new opportunities will open up to you. The second most popular spoken language in the world is English.
To communicate and connect with others is a key asset in your personal growth and with a good understanding this promotes an inner and outer confidence when communicating.
In the workplace, understanding English will enable you to feel like a valid team member or employee and have no fear that you will not understand or be able to voice your concerns, or opinions and not have them heard. If we look carefully at why it is important to go beyond the basics in a new language, you will find that the more you know, the more you will grow.
As an active listener who understands, you also want to be able to ask questions, be able to be clear in your speaking and writing, and use the appropriate language in any situation.
