With our WaystagePro level students are introduced to basic administrative and managerial skills ranging from proper professional phone etiquette to making simple presentations.

At this stage, students can hold a conversation with a good degree of fluency, read simple books, newspapers, web content, and technical documents, and write short letters and business reports. With UpperWaystagePro, students are taught skills that range from handling important calls in the manager’s absence to learning recruiting and interviewing techniques for managerial staff.

At the Threshold stage, students can converse with a high degree of fluency and are able to comprehend complex ideas expressed in English. With ThresholdPro, students are challenged with executive-level complexities ranging from cross-cultural conflict resolution to discussing a company’s brand and marketing strategy.

At this stage, students reinforce their English proficiency through conversational classes, role-plays, and readings designed to expand vocabulary and introduce new sentence structures.
