Business English Training Course

Business English is English language especially related to international trade.[citation needed] It is a part of English for Specific Purposes and can be considered a specialism within English language learning and teaching. English is the international language of business. We offer a Business English Course to help you understand the world of business and get the language skills needed in the global market.

Business English means different things to different people. For some, it focuses on vocabulary and topics used in the worlds of business, trade, finance, and international relations. For others it refers to the communication skills used in the workplace, and focuses on the language and skills needed for typical business communication such as presentations, negotiations, meetings, small talk, socializing, correspondence, report writing, and a systematic approach. In both of these cases it can be taught to native speakers of English, for example, high school students preparing to enter the job market. Business English is a variant of international English. One can study it at a college or university.

Participants are first tested for their English language level against the CEF (Common European Framework of Reference of Languages), and courses are planned and designed at the appropriate level.

Course objectives are of two types:

  1. To raise participant language competency levels (in CEF terms)
  2. To develop skills and language for use in specific contexts as requested by the client

Our methodology ensures a balance of activities and exercises to develop language structure, vocabulary and pronunciation, as well as key skills. Both in-house and published materials are used, and teachers provide expert guidance and tools that participants can transfer easily to their everyday work.
