Courses to Improve Communication Skills

Health professionals need advanced language skills to communicate effectively and with confidence.

Although language proficiency tests can prove basic language abilities, they do not address all aspects of communication. In the Canadian workplace, it is important to be aware of non-verbal aspects of communication, such as eye contact, body language, facial expressions and personal space. Also, you will notice that people from different cultures or who live in different regions of Canada use different ‘slang’ words or informal phrases which you may not be familiar with.

It is strongly recommended that you take additional language courses to continually improve your communication skills and to practice what you have learned. This will greatly increase your chances for success in the certification exams and in obtaining a licence.
