Have any questions? Below are some frequently asked questions and the answers for each one.

Q1. Is the workshop, Speaking English with Confidence, right for me?

This workshop is suitable for working adults with low to intermediate English proficiency. Join us if you would like to:

  • conquer your way out of shyness;
  • get motivated to speak and improve your English;
  • take home worksheets containing usable phrases and frameworks for use in tough speaking situations;
  • become an empowered, English-speaking you through our pronunciation and intonation practice; and

Q2. What will you be teaching us in the workshop?

Here are some of the things we’ll cover:

  • Self-coaching tips to get you through speaking situations
  • Tips for conquering shyness and hesitancy when speaking
  • Successful speaking frameworks for various social situations
  • Vocabulary and phrases to use to sound natural and confident
  • Voice and intonation practice to sound confident and professional

Q3. My level of English is very poor. Would this workshop be suitable for me?

Our workshop will be conducted in English, so we recommend this workshop to those who have an understanding of English.  It’s okay if you think you can’t speak English at all. If you can understand English, you will still benefit greatly from this training.

The trainer and facilitators (that’s Azimah, Aisya and Amnah) are Malaysian, so you can speak to us in Malay if you struggle to understand what we teach. However, we do not recommend this workshop if you do not understand English at all (if you’re reading this, then we’re guessing you can understand English 🙂 ).

Q4. Where is the location of the workshop?

The workshop will be held in an event hall within Glo Damansara, Taman Tun Dr. Ismail. Glo Damansara is a new shopping mall that is connected to the TTDI MRT station. They also have a parking lot with affordable parking rates if you prefer to drive.

If you’re coming from outside of Kuala Lumpur, the nearest hotel is Manhattan Business Hotel TTDI, which is just a walking distance away from the venue.

Another hotel is One World Hotel, which is a short walking distance from the Bandar Utama MRT station. You can take the MRT and alight at TTDI which is just one station away.

Of course, there are plenty of other places to stay within the area. Just check out booking.com or wherever else you prefer to book your accommodations.

Q5. I can’t attend the workshop due to other commitments on those dates. Will you be having more workshops in the future?

Yes, we do plan to have more workshops in the future, but dates are not yet confirmed. Please make sure you mark our emails as important (so that they don’t end up in the spam folder). We will let you know about future programmes via email. As an email subscriber, you’ll also get access to our Early Bird offers.

Q6. I live so far away from KL. Do you have any online courses and classes instead?

If you’re interested in online learning, you can enrol for our online course, Communicate with Confidence, which will reopen for enrolment in November/December 2018. Please make sure you mark our emails as important (so that they don’t go to your spam folder). We will always let our email subscribers know of all our programmes and classes. As an email subscriber, you’ll get access to our Early Bird offers, too.
