Free Language Development for Agents course

International House Torquay / Torquay International School has launched a new, free 'Language Development for Agents' course.

Owner and Director, Kevin McNally, said, "When I am asked to describe International House Torquay, my first words are; small, professional, friendly, personal. My team and I have spent the last four weeks working non-stop to create an online programme. We are confident that the programme upholds our core values, and delivers our usual high standards and exceptional value for money to your clients. We are very proud of what we have achieved."

Following a very successful pilot over the last 2 weeks, IH Torquay is pleased to announce this new free online course for agents which will cover areas such as:

  • Negotiating and Compromising
  • Getting to “Yes” in English
  • Small talk and Socialising
  • Closing a Conversation (without causing offence!)
  • Asking and Requesting
  • Cross-cultural Understanding

Kevin commented, “We were delighted when our pilot of this course was so over-subscribed we had to offer additional sessions. Feedback was extremely positive, with 92% of participants saying they would recommend.

"More than 50 agents participated in the pilot programme last week, from Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Italy, Japan, Germany, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland, Thailand and Turkey. It was a truly global experience, and the sessions also served to consolidate and strengthen our ties in these difficult times. We look forward to welcoming colleagues old and new on board this exciting innovation."

The course is repeated throughout the day to capture various time zones. Join IH Torquay at one of the following times for a free online tutorial and demonstration of their programmes:

Morning session: Friday 24 April at 09:00 to 10:00 hrs
