Part-Time Students

The English Language Institute (ELI) part-time program is designed to meet the needs of non-native English speakers, living in the Westchester-Fairfield area, who wish to improve their English language proficiency for social, professional, and academic purposes.  A variety of non-credit courses are offered for high-beginner to advanced level students in both the ELI's General and Intensive programs. These courses include both skill-based courses such as Grammar and Conversation, and content-based courses such as Business English, Introduction to Fiction, and American Idioms and Slang.  (Course selection varies by session.)

ELI 2333
Business English: First Impressions - Opening the Door to Success
What is the first thing you notice when you meet someone for the first time?... Is it their appearance?  Their body language?  The expression on their face?  The way they speak?  How does that first impression affect what you think of them, or the way you will interact with them going forward?   In this interactive class, you will learn how these, and other, key elements combine to create a first, and often lasting, positive or negative impression.    Gain a competitive advantage in business and personal life by discussing and practicing the verbal and non-verbal behaviors that create a positive impression from the first “hello” to the interview to the “welcome to the company” conversation.
