Business English Courses
for all professional profiles

 

As in General English Courses, Business English Courses are offered as blended learning, and supported by a broad range of resources and materials available to the student in order to meet the desired learning objectives.

The work plan includes mixed methodologies to cover the necessary contents and skills:

  • Task-based learning
  • Specific vocabulary needs: Business, Financial, Legal, Technical, Engineering, Hydrocarbons, Mining, Tourism, Food or Medicine
  • Case Study Methodology (Case Method)
  • Communicative approach
  • Optional E-learning support
  • By applying Case Study Methodology, Effective English Advisers offers students the possibility of addressing the daily communication needs arising in the world of business:

  • Answering phone calls
  • Dealing with unexpected situations
  • Language for meetings
  • Successful Presentations
  • Negotiation
  • Market Research
  • Corporate culture
  • Teamwork
  • Entrepreneurship
  • Business trips
  • Our main focus is on developing communication skills. We do not only stress on accuracy and fluency (as in the Standard English course), but we also make emphasis on efficiency.

    Given the transactional nature of Business English, we help students develop communication skills to meet the objectives efficiently by making use of business situations that may be encountered in daily life, brought to the classroom by the teacher. Effective English Advisers works with 6 general levels of linguistic competences based on international standards. In turn, within these six levels, sublevels may appear. (See comparative table).
