Czenglish: 25 bad mistakes Czechs make when speaking English_Capacity Full

November 22, 2013 AmCham offices, Dušní 10, Prague 1

Course Objectives Care to find out about the worst mistakes Czechs make when speaking English? Interested in knowing what native speakers find funny and what you have to watch out for when speaking or writing e-mails? Dare to set yourself apart from most other Czech students by keeping away from errors that make native English speakers cringe? Overview Czechisms are mistakes we make when we subconsciously transpose an expression from our mother tongue, Czech, into English discourse. They involve grammar, vocabulary, and even pronunciation. In most cases, we're not aware of these linguistic blunders. Some of them are amusing, others put us in a bad light, and yet others might prevent our interlocutor from understanding what we're trying to say. Target Group This course is for all students who want to rid themselves of errors they make when speaking English. The course curriculum has been designed to help you fine-tune your English very fast and effectively. The seminar will help you say good-bye to the following kinds of Czechisms: - It's an English word, right? (communistic/touristic, moderator, depressive, chief, politik, exposition, medicaments, etc.) - Bad translation – collocations that don't work in English (make a trip/make a photo/cook coffee, big fun, today morning, chicken meat, etc.) - Adding articles in the wrong places (the bed, the Prague, the work, a dinner, take a part, have a time, etc.) - Countable in Czech – not in English (troubles, advices, knowledges, homeworks, feedbacks, etc.) - To or not to? (said me/explain me/recommend me, call to me, etc.) - Preposition nightmares (on cottage, on university, in internet/TV, looked/stared/laughing on me, sense for humor, etc.) - The rest of the mess – other key errors to eliminate (according the book, discuss about, much more quicker, etc.) Instructor´s Profile: MARK PICKERING majored in English Literature at the University of Sheffield in the UK. He earned a TEFL certificate in Prague to teach English as a foreign language. Before embarking on a teaching career, Mark worked as an editor and reporter for various UK-based magazines. Since he moved to Prague in 2009, he has worked as an instructor and given specialized seminars for such companies as AstraZeneca, OMV, and Henkel.

The Future of Office Space

November 20, 2013 CBRE offices, Palladium, Nám. Republiky 1a, Prague 1

The world is changing and society is developing. New generations, a different work-life balance, explosive technological growth and, last but not least, economically challenging times. Some companies have adapted their workplaces in reaction to these changes by implementing more innovative office concepts. And others have not. There are differences in levels of adaptation between business sectors and especially countries. What trends are we seeing in the Czech Republic? Do we have examples of companies who already implemented new ways of working? Are employees changing what they expect from their employers and the workplace? Are office occupiers requiring different functionalities from their office furniture? Are developers, landlords and serviced office providers reconsidering their business models to meet the changing demands of occupiers? Are occupier requirements for office space in the Czech Republic changing at all? The following speakers will aim to provide answers to all of these questions and much more. Presentations will be followed by a lively discussion and tour of the new CBRE offices: - CBRE - Bert Hesselink (Case study of the CBRE New Way of Working & trends in innovative office concepts abroad) - JLL - Jan Mechl (Overall market perspective on innovative office concepts in the Czech Republic and whether or not tenants are keen on implementing them now and/or in the future) - Regus - Petr Narwa (How does Regus adapt their business strategy to a changing world? What is happening abroad compared to the Czech Republic?) - Hays - Eva Mizerova (What do employees expect from their future workplace? Are their demands and expectations changing?) - AIG Lincoln - Steven Tichy (Developer’s point of view on how current trends may affect the design of office buildings) - Ian Bryan Architects - Ian Bryan (Are office occupiers’ demands and expectations with respect to interior design and functionality changing? What are the latest trends in office design? How does the Czech Republic compare to other countries?) Register at registration@amcham.cz. Please be aware that the capacity is limited (2 persons/member company can attend the event). Contact person: Lucie Vrbová, lvrbova@amcham.cz
