Business English

This course is designed to cover the English needed in the everyday business and workplace situation. It is suitable for those working in management, office administration, HR (Human Resources), customer service or sales/marketing roles who wish to develop their English language skills at work. We also prepare students for business English exams: BEC Vantage, BEC Advanced and TOEIC.

Classes are organised to improve your communication skills by building on grammar structures. Vocabulary, listening, reading and writing skills are taught in a business context.  Courses are tailor-made to each individual or particular group. We introduce you to a range of digital resources to support your independent study, and your quest to become a lifelong language learner.

Below, I list a sample syllabus over a typical 12 week course: We use material from Cambridge's 'Business Benchmark', Pearson's 'Market Leader' series, worksheets from Linguahouse, ESL Brains, and articles (text, listening and viewing) from various news broadcasters such as BBC News, CNN, Sky and popular presentations from 'TED Talks'.
