  • Retour skills enhancement work (reformulation, deduction and anticipation).
  • English enhancement exercises.
  • Voice training.
  • A session on issues specific to the IT-EN combination.

Participants will receive a short questionnaire to enable the trainer to fine-tune the course on the basis of their expectations and needs.
