DIT: You Can Export – Doing business in the Arabic speaking world

11 January, 9:00 am - 4:30 pm


Department of International Trade

As part of our long-term commitment to improve international communication, the Department for International Trade (DIT) are offering a full-day of language and culture training in Arabic.  In short, this will help to improve your ability to conduct business overseas.

What’s on offer?

As a result of attending, you’ll be able to communicate better with your Arabic speaking counterparts and customers. Delivered by a quality assured trainer, this one day course will introduce you to the basics of the Arabic language.  Furthermore, it will give you an insight into cultural attitudes and behaviours.

By the end of the session delegates will better understand:

Basic Language

  • Meeting and greeting
  • Numbers
  • Emergency Arabic – ‘I’m sorry’, ‘Do you speak English?’ etc.
  • The basics of Arabic writing

Social & Business Etiquette

  • Introducing yourself
  • Meeting culture
  • Manners – dos and don’ts
  • Eating out

In business, great communication and customer care skills are essential to your success.  So exporting to countries where English is not the official language and where cultural norms may be quite different can seem daunting.  DIT has years of experience in helping UK exporters overcome the barriers around international communication.  And our workshops provide a fantastic opportunity to tackle some of these barriers head on.

Further information and registration

This exclusive workshop is only available to companies from the East Midlands. Attendance costs just £50 (+VAT) per delegate and places are expected to go fast, so secure your place today.

Please note: no refunds will be given for cancellations received 3 working days or less prior to the event or for ‘no shows’ on the day.  If you have any other queries, please contact us on 0345 052 4001.
