The activities include listening, reading, writing and discussions. Units 1 - 4 introduce the basis business skills, units 5 - 14 introduce the integrated skills around one business situation. The course requires Basic English knowledge. It suits for a wide variety of learners from young people without any work experience to senior business people with a lot of experience dealing foreign partners.

The learning hour is 45 minutes and includes working with the Student’s Book and with the Workbook. To complete the material in a typical unit will take about eight 45-minute lessons. The exact time required depends on the length of the unit and the English level of the class. In many of the speaking, reading and listening activities the students are expected to work together in pairs, groups or participate in the role-play.

Business English is not a special language with a special grammar- it is simply English used in business situations. This course does not cover some special technical, academic or special vocabulary used at the concrete trade or firm. But it does cover the basic business or commercial terms that most business people use in their work. The students can learn the terminology to talk about their firm’s products or services at work.

This course presupposes rather good English level of the students that can be checked by the grammar test and oral test. If necessary, it is possible to start with a grammar refreshing course. Its variety and content will depend on the English level of the students. And only after this grammar course it can be useful to start with Business English course.
