To help students understand, become more competent, thus more helpful in any office environment by teaching them the most common words and phrases used in the routine office activities and teaching them the basics of conducting a successful job interview.
Office in English is constructed using many conversation drills which helps a student imagine the context and meanings a little better. It greatly helps when it is important to learn specific frequently used long phrases as those would not be easily put into many different sentences. The words, sentence patterns and phrases are aimed at the office environment.
A student who feels more comfortable in an office surrounding has the capability to communicate using the phrases and words taught in the course. Such a student isn’t afraid to have telephone conversations and is able to delegate jobs and administer well.
Accent is a combination of four main components: voice quality, intonation (speech music), liaisons (word connections), and pronunciation (the spoken sounds of vowels, consonants and combinations). As you go along, you’ll notice that you’re being asked to look at accent in a different way. You’ll also realize that the grammar you studied before and this accent you’re studying now are completely different.
Part of the difference is that grammar and vocabulary are systematic and structured –the letter of the language. Accent, on the other hand, is free form, intuitive and creative –more the spirit of the language. So, thinking of music, feeling, and flow, let your mouth relax into the American accent.
