Being Professional in English is unique as I, Mark Olding bring :

 – tools and techniques which have allowed me to operate professionally in a second language

The above have provided me with a unique perspective compared to all other participants in this field. I am able to observe language in the workplace and not just teach it but I can judge what is professional and what is not, what is effective and what is not, what is too much to ask of a manager and what is not. All this gives my clients a more direct route to obtain a high degree of professionalism in English as well as demonstrate that they are highly effective.

My company City Professional English is the umbrella through which I offer guidance, tools and techniques on how to achieve effective professionalism. Being Professional in English is the trademark through which I offer this guidance. It is highly practical guide which can be put to use immediately.

You And I Tackle The Same Daily Professional Issues

Every day I operate in an enviornment in which my mother tongue language is not used extensively. Every day I must present, meet, telephone, write emails, negotiate in fact all the usual professional competences in Italian, not in English my mother tongue. And I need ot do this as professionally as possible and be seen to be effective: it is what I teach so I must demonstrate it !

This is the same as you.

So I know, I understand the difficulties which are not always to do with language skills but simply the carrying out of a difficult job, being a manager or professional in a highly competitive world in a second language. Often I would ask myself why I could not be as effective in my second language, as I could in my first. Take a listen to the following video in which I describe where CPE comes from:

What Have I Put Together

As mentioned in the video I have taken all the techniques that I have developed to help me be effective and produced practical easily usable guidance and tools within each of the most used business skills. It is with this content that I do the following:

  • With clients in face to face sessions I guide them to be percieved as they want to be in the international marketplace.
  • In the podcasts which I produce and are available in my website or via iTunes, I have placed as much guidance as possible into short 30 minute weekly instalments.

However now with the Being Professional in English Home Study Course I have gone as far as possible to closely replicate the face to face sessions I have with my clients, using as a base the audio from the Podcast library. And here is what that combination offers you:

  • Powerpoint Presentation where each slide is synchronised with the audio podcast, allowing you to follow the audio in-depth and as if you were participating in a live presentation.
  • a slide by slide comprehension quiz, which is automatically scored at the end allowing you to self check your own comprehension of the content.
  • a section dedicated to the study of the natural unscripted language used in the podcast, thus giving you exposure to “real” language spoken by a “real” professional
  • an Action Point Mission Statement, thus ensuring that the new knowledge you have acquired in the Premium Podcast is actually turned into real live activity. This is extremely important and crucial to making a difference to your effectiveness and hence career.
  • a Home Study Course issued weekly and lasting 2 to 3 hours, which covers content highly relevant to your career. No more irrelevant studying.

Questions You Might Have

How do I receive and then use the Premium Podcast Course

The Premium Podcast works on all devices. the first time you purchase you will receive an email with a downloadable link. As you click on this using any device, you will be offered to download an application called Articulate. Once downloaded your Premium Podcast will load automatically.

I do not see the difference between Premium Podcasts and all the other products on the market.

I will not be able to transfer what I learn into real world activity.

At the end of every Premium Podcast there is an Action Point Mission Statement. In this you will be given specific tasks to complete and a checklist so as to help you transfer new knowledge into real activity that you can benefit from.

I will not have 2 or 3 hours per week to study.

A new Premium Podcast is published each time a new regular Podcast is published. But if you cannot manage to study every week, just buy the Premium Podcast and download the course to use later during the weeks when you will have more time. You pay for each course not a monthly fixed fee.

I will not understand the recording

To help you understand the recording there are the presentation slides, the synchronised audio, comprehension questions and natural language study notes. All these will help tremendously.

I use my iPad mostly, does the Home Study Course work on mobile devices.

The Premium Podcast Course works with iPhone, iPad, Android devices, a PC or a Mac – It works with everything !!!
