Well-presented course. Facilitators were knowledgeable, good examples, and were fun. Thank you. Really enjoyed the day – has made me think more about how I talk with people who do not speak English. Has given me very useful tips that I can use in profession/job.

Day went very fast. Helps to refocus on what is required by me to improve my communication with non-native speakers in our staff. Really helpful! A great day. Enjoyable and worthwhile; an eye-opener.

Very effective at promoting awareness of our presumptions about another’s understanding.’ ‘Extremely important to all front-line staff.

Course would be highly relevant for all admin/reception staff as well as all professional grades. Examples and comparisons helped to relate the specific skills to real life. Especially like the diversity of activity – lots of interactive exercises. Well done – a lot packed in.
