4- Needs Analysis:
Saudi Academy offers a number of ESP (English for specific purposes) courses; they vary from business English to vocational/ technical English used in factories or other workplaces of the kind. The courses are both predesigned and designed upon request as well to improve the communication skills of the trainees in English. The content of our curricula is a unique mixture of business English, English for technicians as well as an enhancement of the related soft skills language used in presentation skills or writing emails.
Providing specially customized ESP courses requires a thorough analysis of the needs of the potential trainees. This is to be carried out by meeting the manager of the organization as well as surveying the needs of the potential learners themselves before a draft of the technical proposal is prepared for the final approval of the content.
Our qualified trainers are both native and non-native speakers; either of the two parties has gained international experience in the English training field.
