ECSC Trainer Explaining English Vocabulary

English Conversation Practice for Professionals in Bangkok

English Conversation Practice lessons focus on vocabulary building, developing fluency, and the ability to use Business English politely & persuasively.

These lessons are designed for some intermediate students & all advanced students.

ECSC’s expert trainers place special attention on ensuring students are taught word pairs, phrases, expressions, and idioms that will help them communicate much more effectively at work.

The stages of a conversation practice lesson for Thai company employees are as follows:

  1. Employees learn a series of multi-words related to their jobs.
  2. The meanings of those multi-words are thoroughly defined.
  3. Our trainer explains how, when, and why to use that vocabulary in the workplace.
  4. Role-playing activities for speaking in realistic work situations are performed.
  5. The new multi-words are reviewed and key takeaways are discussed.

PLEASE NOTE: Lessons are built around multi-words vocabulary relevant to employees’ roles at the company, so they can speak Business English fluently – which is something Thai professionals can do better.

ECSC's English conversation lessons give employees plenty of opportunities to practice speaking in situations related to their jobs.
