Riding the Wave in Costa Rica: Getting the Job Done Well in English LIMITED

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Limited Capacity seats available

The ability to use English on the job is no longer a choice but a given currently in Costa Rica.  Today in order to be competitive in the job market, everyone needs to go way beyond their comfort zones into their growth zones, and their communication skills in English, the global lingua franca, need to be honed.  Our government is making a huge commitment to ensure that the Costa Rican children and youth of tomorrow will be bilingual to maintain our regional and global competitiveness. In the meantime, we need to train those who have not received this linguistic edge in the past to meet their challenges today. That’s where ESP (English for Specific Purposes) is critical. This session will help you understand how ESP is key to language training and how to do it.
