How to Be Confident in English - The Secrets of International Communication Success

Confident English Course


You already have the English capacity you need. You have a decent English vocabulary, can read adequately and frequently study English to get better. Yet when it comes to international business meetings and presentations, you suddenly freeze. Ever experience something like that? This is because you have the ability but lack the confidence to speak English. Perhaps you are trying to speak “perfect” English and fear embarrassing yourself. We will help you remove such barriers that prevent you from communicating in English with confidence.

How it will help you

Communication is a key element in global business. So why don’t Japanese team members show their ability and speak up in international meetings? It is not English itself that is the barrier here. It is the resistance to speaking less than perfect English. Have you set limits for yourself because you are afraid of not being able to speak fluent English or communicate well? You can remove these limitations yourself. You don't have to have perfect grammar. Speak the English you know. The key to breakthroughs is to first "try speaking even if it is not perfect.

Suitable for

  • Anyone wishing to operate in a global environment but who tend to be hesitant to speak out in settings where English is required.
  • Anyone who can introduce themselves to a certain extent but lacks confidence in presenting or conducting discussions in English
  • Anyone with basic English skills equivalent to a TOEIC score of 600 or higher
