Business English Lessons
These lessons will cover a range of business related topics such as business writing, marketing, corporate structure, business plans, meetings, telephoning, and many other related subjects. Over each week of the course, one of the main topics will be covered through a variety of listening texts and readings adapted from authentic sources such as newspapers. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in business communication role plays such as meetings, negotiations, interviews and telephone conversations as well as improve the various written communicative skills essential in the workplace with a specific writing task each week, for example a CV, report, memo or letter.
Students will also be expected to take part in formal presentations and to use their newly acquired business vocabulary and related communication skills to analyse particular case studies. While business is the intended focus of this course, different grammar points and vocabulary skills will also be studied each week in order to prepare students to communicate effectively in an English speaking business environment.
There is no minimum requirement for private business lessons but ESLA recommends a minimum 5 week lesson plan.
