Professional English Communication for Government and Public Administration

10 - 21 July 2017
Vienna, Austria

In many countries, English is the second language for official government and public policy documents, and for public policy professionals working internationally, English is often the given lingua franca. Public policy professionals need to deliver speeches and presentations, participate in meetings and produce professional written communications for ministers and other senior government officials. This course focuses on equipping participants with the practical skills to communicate in a wide variety of contexts specific to government and public administration, and engages participants in practical simulations, reflecting the real communication needs of professionals working in this environment.
