Business language courses may seem redundant at first.
Unfortunately, you risk making more than one business mistake without knowing the basics of business language, which is a dialect unto itself. The absolute necessity of a solid understanding of business language can be partly explained by the linguistic practice of “code switching”. What is code switching?

Essentially, it is the phenomenon by which the speaker changes the languages ​​or styles of speech to suit a specific audience.
An example of this is a teenager who acts rude in the presence of his friends but has a respectful attitude in the presence of his parents. Another example of this is using jargon with your spouse and then speaking in a professional manner with your colleagues and managers at your job. Extensive knowledge of industry jargon is not necessary. There are nuances in the language that indicate professionalism and respectability that will make you sound competent and serious about your job. What you can expect with our business language courses

If your employer offers to help you improve your business language skills, you will have the opportunity to learn under the supervision of qualified and experienced teachers at the Charlemagne Linguistic Academy. First, you must complete a basic language course in order to progress to the more specialized business language program. Standard language courses are offered for all skills, so if you already have a basic understanding of English or French, you won't have to start from scratch. Our instructors will help you find the level of difficulty that suits you best by carrying out a simple assessment. The beauty of being registered for language courses through your employer is that our instructors can come to your workplace so they don't disrupt your time.

How will you benefit from a business language course

Having a good understanding of business language does not come naturally to native speakers. It is therefore even more important for foreign language speakers to learn the nuances of the business language, which will greatly benefit their careers and broaden their possibilities. Learning a business language in French or English in Quebec will help you behave professionally in the following forms of documentation:

● Commercial and formal communication (oral and written expression)
