English Courses for Communication, the Media & Journalism

Course Overview:

English for Communication and the Media refines the language skills that participants need to effectively communicate across a broad spectrum of fields and disciplines, such as Public Relations, Fundraising, Media Planning, Campaign Management, among others. Course participants, whether they work for an NGO, public company, small business, or otherwise, are guided by their language teacher in interactive, hands-on and industry-specific language-related tasks. Students following this course will increase their competence in using the English language as a tool to achieve the goals of their organization.

In this course, emphasis is placed on developing participants’ awareness of the English language, enabling them to identify appropriate modes of communication in various situations. Students will develop sensitivity towards nuanced vocabulary, register, tone, structure, and style. They will apply their knowledge in practical, scaffolded tasks, which improve and strengthen the communicational content of their texts, enabling them to connect with wider audiences and markets.

Students will make use of an Interactive Course Pack consisting of two main components. One, the main course materials, tailor-selected and sequenced according to the needs and functional goals of each group of students; and two, the supplementary content, which are multimedia texts that inspire critical thinking, dialogue, and debate.

In order to customise the content of the course, GSE creates a unique programme for the client after they complete the NAQ (Needs Analysis Questionnaire). Please do not hesitate to contact us to request a needs analysis questionnaire: [email protected]
