WorkCom_Week 3

We have now reached week 3 of Workplace Communications! This week, we are engaging in a number of activities that allow you to practise your presentation and telephoning skills to prepare for a Canadian workplace.

Are you uncomfortable speaking English over the phone? No matter whether English is your first language or not, it’s generally more difficult to  communicate with someone when you are deprived of visual clues, and your interlocutor’s facial expressions and gestures.  But there are some strategies you can apply during phone conversations to reassure the message is correct. You will learn about those when you go through the topics listed below.
