Advanced/Professional Development course in English for the World of Work: Focus on professional speaking and writing skills

The Advanced, Professional Development Course “English for the World of Work”, now in its sixth edition, was originally established to respond to the needs of the Italian workplace, which increasingly requires proficient and competent English users. The course aims, therefore, to develop and extend the participants’ English speaking and written skills and is aimed primarily at the management sector. The participants are mainly university students and professionals, who are already at work, but it is highly useful to researchers, assistant researchers and doctoral students as well.
