Cafe English

CoursesComments Off on Cafe English

Our uniquely designed program is ideal for students interested in working in cafés, or other areas of customer service.  It bridges the gap between a language classroom and a fast-paced English-speaking work environment by allowing students to practice common workplace scenarios while obtaining specific and immediate one on one feedback from a certified ESL teacher with Starbucks barista qualification.  The students learn the language required to work at a café, and practice it daily.

Some features include:

  • Fast-paced work-related role-plays
  • Q & A meeting with café managers
  • Daily one on one feedback with instructor
  • Resume preparation and interview practice

  • Dealing with customer complaints
  • Handling money
  • Making beverages
  • Customer service analysis/practice
  • Speaking with co-workers
  • Interview practice
