Below is a sample page taken from a wiki used with a group of university admin staff who received training in answering enquiries about courses in English. Apart from working on general telephone language and skills, we also worked on the kind of language that would come up frequently in the enquiries they received. The group were asked to add new vocabulary items to the spreadsheet below as the course progressed.
