Location

Lessons take place over Skype. That way you can learn from the comfort of your home without having to waste time in traffic.

Length of Course

15 hours. Note: this is an estimate. It could take more or less time, depending on the personal needs of the student.

Course Objectives

By the end of the course, you will have gained the ability to speak clearly about the most important aspects of business culture. Superior communication in English is the end goal of the course. When you are given opportunities to experience a variety of meaningful business tasks, the learning is much more effective. Through the engaging topic discussions, and practical self-study tasks, you will become more confident in expressing yourself in a business setting.

Methodology

Before we begin you will take an assessment test to see what level you are currently at. Once we have the results, we will focus on your mistakes and eliminate them over time.

The course incorporates reading and listening activities, with a stronger emphasis on speaking and writing. Each week, you will be given a quiz based on the mistakes that you make. I want to make sure your specific needs are addressed and corrected.

You will also be invited to join my Business English WhatsApp group. In this group I share helpful grammar tips, pronunciation exercises, and relevant business information.

Learning involves far more than reading, listening, speaking and writing. With the support of scientific evidence I make sure to include in my lessons the latest developments in the science of learning.
