Business English is a part of ESP, English for Specific Purposes and is considered a specialism within English language learning and teaching, or a variant of international English. ... Business English courses teach common skills used in the workplace such as email writing, giving presentations, meetings, writing reports ,engaging in negotiations and more. Business English is the norm for international trade, commerce, finance, insurance, banking, and generally most office settings. Consequently, learners are expected to use standard English that is clear, concise and to the point, employing the particular technical vocabulary and grammatical structures most suited to each business sector.
This course is, therefore, designed to provide support and advice for professionals who need to improve their English whilst at the same time acquire vocabulary and phrases required for the world of business. It combines specialised classes in International Business English communication skills and concepts with general English language skills.
