Telephone English skills are very important to most businesses, yet not many people study the techniques of the telephone in order to improve their skills. Talking on the phone in English is one of the most difficult areas of communication because you can’t see the person you’re talking to, and so you can’t see his or her body language. Besides, talking on the phone, especially in business, also requires its own special set of words and phrases.

Good phone skills will help you develop a clear, professional manner and build relationships on the phone with your clients and colleagues. This course will train all important areas in phone conversation such as making / taking business phone calls, leaving / taking messages, numbers and spelling, handling complaints, conference calls, making appointments on the phone and many other interesting topics.
