Communication plays a vital role in our everyday lives – from business meetings to discussions around the dinner table. It’s about more than words – it’s about how you use those words, and whether the other person has understood what you wanted to say.
Sometimes it’s obvious when people haven’t understood us. When we don’t communicate well, it can lead to misunderstandings or even arguments. However, if we don’t give people the full story or we are unclear, it can also lead to them clicking away from our website, potential customers not understanding how our services would help them, or our contacts not realising why we would actually make a great business connection or collaboration partner.
At EwK services, I can work with you in a wide range of areas – whether you want to improve your communication skills, communicate in English as an additional language, present your products and services in writing, or have German content translated into English.
I will help you to communicate more effectively
Communicating clearly in writing
Would you like someone to check your website content, social media posts, newsletters, messages for customers, or press releases? Would you like it to be someone else’s job to fix any small grammar or word choice errors and make sure that you get your message across clearly? Do you want to make sure that the English texts sound like you, not a machine translation or a modified version of you?
Do you have ideas about what you want to say, but wish you had support in shaping them into a clearly-written text?
If so, you’ll be most interested in my proofreading and text writing services.
Presenting Yourself or ideas
Applying for a job can be a stressful time, but it’s much easier if you’re well-prepared. I provide a job interview preparation service, in which we will run through a series of possible questions, discuss your answers, and practise your spontaneous responses to interview questions.
However, this service isn’t just about job interviews, as we don’t only give presentations when we’re applying for jobs. If you are preparing for a presentation at work and need help with your delivery, preparing to speak in public, or planning to answer questions that you may be asked, have a look at my presentation service.
If you’re specifically looking to present yourself and your business at networking meetings in English, have a look at my Business networking in English training that I provide on my language training website.
Communicating German content in English
Do you want to reach a wider audience with your German content? I provide German to English translations of a wide range of texts.
Communicating effectively when English is not your first language
All of the above services are equally relevant to people who don’t have English as a first language. If you’re specifically interested in improving your English, I also provide language training services for adults. All of my learning courses and materials are on EwK services’ sister site, English with Kirsty.
If you have any questions, you’d like to book a 30-minute introduction meeting with me to discuss how I can support you and your business with communication in English, or you would like to sign up for regular updates, you can send me an email or use the contact form.
Listen to the podcast
My English with Kirsty podcast began as a tool for learners of English, but it’s developed into much more than that. It’s still relevant for language learners, but also for people who are interested in improving their communication skills, getting their message across effectively, and making the language they use work for them. You can find it wherever you usually get your podcasts, or listen on the podcast page of my English with Kirsty site.
