The word language can also be used to describe the set of rules that makes this possible, or the set of utterances that can be produced from those rules.

Communication Skills & Presentation Skills

Improving your ability to communicate better is vital in business and life in general.

Effective communication is of increasing importance for companies and specifically at business meetings, where conversations need particular care. Many problems organisations face are the direct result of people failing to communicate, or communicate effectively. Communication is the exchange and flow of information and ideas from one person to another; it is effective communication if the receiver correctly understands the information / idea that the sender intended to transmit.

To ensure you communicate efficiently and effectively, there are three primary considerations:

  • make your message understood
  • receive & understand the message as it was intended
  • exert some control over the flow of the communication

A course to improve communication skills will help you evaluate how effectively you communicate and help you identify areas to focus on for improvement.

Presentations are efficient and powerful ways of addressing an audience, expressing a point, or winning a sales deal. All areas of businesses use presentations and good presentation skills are an invaluable asset to any organisation. Effective presentation skills aid managers, help with leadership and enable people to develop professionally in their careers.

Benefits of taking a language course
