MODULE 1 COURSE HIGHLIGHTS
English has quickly become the most commonly spoken language in the world and because of this it is constantly evolving. Not only is over 50% of the content on the internet in English, but it is almost a necessity for people to speak English if they are a professional in our globalised and multicultural world of business. The aim of this course is to help you feel at ease and operate confidently in an English-speaking environment, with all the grammar, pronunciation, and useful phrases you could need.
1. Reintroduction to the English Language
This first lesson will introduce the English diploma and outline the course objectives and content. You will be reintroduced to the basics of the English language, which will prepare you for the lessons to come. You will also practice sounding polite in your spoken English.
2. Talking About Now
Next we will help you master the present tenses and instruct you how to talk about your work routine, your weekend, and what you are doing now. You will also explore the different types of verbs and how we can change the focus of a sentence with the passive voice.
3. What Happened in the Past?
In lesson 3 we will further develop your knowledge of the tenses by looking at how we talk about the past. You will also learn how to regulate your speech, by making an opinion stronger or softening negative comments. Moreover, we will explore relative clauses and the different types of nouns.
4. Amazing Descriptions!
This lesson will further develop your descriptive language with a look at the different forms of adjectives and how we use them. You will learn how to make comparisons and even talk about limits and restrictions. We will also have an in-depth look at the difficult world of adverbs to improve your fluency when speaking.
5. Spoken English for Telephones
Here you will learn those all-important skills for speaking English. We will focus on your telephone manner and how to use your voice to sound more fluent. This will be supported by the future tenses for scheduling events and exposure to modal verbs for permission and advice.
6. Talking Like a Native
In Lesson 6, you will hone your spoken English by learning the language you need to travel the world with. This will include everything from the use of idioms, to a look at the different phrases used from one English-speaking country to another. This lesson will really help you speak like a local.
7. Written English for Emails
Now we will equip you with all the skills you need to improve your written English, with a focus on professional emails. We will cover stylistic conventions, connectors and linking devices, and everything you need to know about English punctuation.
8. Job Seeking and the Perfect CV
Lesson 8 will expose you to the process of applying for jobs, with helpful tips and common mistakes. We will help you create the perfect CV and tailor it to each potential employer. You will also acquire the key skills to sell yourself in an interview, with plenty of sample questions to practise.

The flexibility to accommodate and work around these challenges has been brilliant. The quality of the presentations and videos has been excellent and yourself and Adrian are first class Tutors. Your enthusiasm and passion for the subject is infectious and you have a real skill for making particular topics accessible and understandable. Areas previously shrouded in mystery to me now make sense! All round great service and quality of support and teaching and materials. I have to confess I wasn't sure what to expect from the course or the Academy and have been very impressed. I've done Open University courses before and have a degree from them but this has been my only experience of distance learning. I would recommend you guys no hesitation.
Since taking the course and talking about it on my CV, I have actually now been offered a job as an Online Affiliate graphic-design Executive – my first graphic-design job since I left university! (I have been swept along in Supply... Chain roles since then). Previously I had found it hard to find graphic-design roles due to having no experience (how do you get experience without being given opportunities!?) Having the course on my CV showed I was willing to learn on my own time, had an interest in the subject, and now had a knowledge of affiliate and online graphic-design. I would not have got this job unless I did this course – it’s as simple as that! I start in June and no doubt I will use what I have learnt on the course a lot
The Diploma in Online graphic-design is the perfect introduction for anyone wishing to venture into the online graphic-design arena. Shaw Academy not only deliver their promise but go the extra mile to ensure a 100% targeted, hands-on, tuition and their student support service matches colleges where you would expected to spend many 000s of pounds. Even after the first tuition sessions I was able to look at the internet from a completely new and productive perspective.
