Presentation by our founder - How Brays English Courses Online Can Get You A Rewarding Job




Hi,

My name's Alan Bray and I'd like to talk about your career advancement.

You are qualified. You are prepared to work hard. You are confident, energetic, reliable, enthusiastic. You get on well with people. And you can see that,

Even in these hard times,
         there are lots of vacancies advertised

Vacancies for: Chemical Engineers, Industrial Engineers, Telecommunications Engineers, Managers, IT Technicians, Customer Service Executives, Financial Advisors, Bank Staff, Administration Officers, Web Marketing Assistants, Javascript Engineers, ICT Managers, Business Development Managers, Cabin Crew etc. etc.

But you can't get one of these jobs, or are having trouble advancing your career.

Why? Is this your problem?

Companies now demand a high level of English

Today companies want to take advantage of the global marketplace.

They demand staff who can communicate in English:

  • "Fluent in English both spoken and written"
  • "High level of English essential"
  • "Bilingual - English and any other language"
  • "Fluent in 2 languages including English"
  • "English, written and spoken"

You know the story.

"Lack of English is now becoming
         a severe barrier to career advancement"

Of course, there are still jobs advertised where you don't require English.

But increasingly, especially for the good jobs, you do.

English has become an essential "transferable skill" valued especially, by:

  • International companies
  • Industries like tourism, logistics, travel, entertainment
  • Internet and the global marketplace
  • Universities

"So learning English makes sense"

but often it seems:

  • 'boring'
  • 'difficult'
  • 'time consuming'
  • 'expensive'

In 40 years helping people learn English I've heard all the reasons. Often I agree with them.

If you spend all your time doing grammar exercises. Or doing translations. Or listening to explanations in your own language. Or using an old fashioned audio-lingual system and repeating like a parrot. Then you are right. It's not very interesting. But,

Learning English online can be enjoyable if you learn with an interesting method.

Learning English online can be easy if you:

  • take it step by step
  • use materials at your level
  • learn in an enjoyable, stress free atmosphere
  • are not frightened to make mistakes
  • learn English online at a time and place that suits you.

Multimedia, the web and English courses online help you learn when you want, where you want. It won't take away your precious time with family and friends. You control your time. It doesn't control you.

Learning English online is inexpensive with a good value-for-money online course. You'll have far more money in your pocket. Hundreds of hours of English at a very low price.

But, be careful. Many English courses online are very uninspiring. So, never pay for a course if you don't get a money-back-guarantee.

After 6 months preparing the courses, backed by 40 years in teaching English, I am absolutely certain that our products will completely satisfy your needs. The courses are the most effective way of:

  • improving your level and/or passing that exam
  • increasing your chances of job success
  • helping secure the future for you and your family

With our easy to follow personalized courses anyone can learn English - and that includes you..

With better English you can obtain the job your training deserves.

Enjoy your English and every success in your life,

Alan Bray
