Professional English for meetings and negotiations
AINova staff organizes specialized language courses on EU terminology and meetings skills.  Courses are designed especially for civil servants and other professionals who participate in working group meetings in the European institutions, for translators and interpreters and other experts who use foreign language in their work.

The contents and scope of the course is always adapted to the needs of participants. In general the courses are very intensive, from 20 to 40 hour long, focused on:
• Development of specialized vocabulary (EU institutions, decision-making, trends in selected areas of EU activities, hot topics)
• Related grammar, discussion on current topics, development of knowledge of EU issues – with the stress on the use of new grammar and communication skills
• Practical training of presentation or meetings skills, related language tools, emphasis on formal vocabulary and means used at meetings and official sessions.

The course participants activate their vocabulary in the area of European affairs, practice selected grammar in connection with the EU topics and acquire phrases used in meetings conducted in English. The texts used during the course are authentic, the trainers rely on their thorough knowledge of the EU institutional environment. The participants are always encouraged to use the genuine vocabulary in debates, simulations, presentations and brainstorming. There is always individual feedback provided, often with video support.
