Conversation

Exam Preparation

Are you planning to take the TESOL, the TOEFL IELTS or any Cambridge Exams? While reading and listening tasks can be practiced through self-study, writing and speaking tasks require feedback. Cyntactic can provide you that constructive feedback. Complete preparation courses or pay-as-you-go meetings available.

Presentation Preparation

Do you need to practice an important English presentation at the last minute? Don't just read your PowerPoint slides - catch the interest and attention of the audience.

Phrase Banking

Cyntactic comes to your location and observes employees in their element. Selected employees are then interviewed regarding what sorts of functions they may need to conduct in English (e.g. greeting visitors, giving directions, conducting tours, dealing with emergencies, etc.). A "bank" of vocabulary, phrases and expressions is compiled by Cyntactic for employees' future reference and use. Follow-up role play sessions recommended in order to practice relevant language, get constructive feedback, polish delivery and increase self-confidence.

Language Assessment

Would you like to know just what level of English your employees have? Would you like to evaluate if the new recruit's English language skills are really as good as he says they are? Allow Cyntactic to assess these skills for you through a brief written test including a practical writing sample and an on-site interview with the employee(s) in question.

Cultural Awareness

Planning on doing more business with Americans or Canadians? Moving to the States anytime soon? While Americans and Swedes share much in common on the surface, we certainly differ down deep. Allow Cyntactic to prepare you for the possible culture shock.
