Description

BUSINESS ENGLISH
This session follows the same format as my Speaking Practice session i.e. friendly but focused discussions with integrated grammar tweaking and vocabulary, idioms, phrases taught in-situ, aiming for 70% student talk time related to the student's context and goals. We will pay attention to pronunciation, tone and register, being informal vs. being formal, how to give and get respect based on how you use language, using assertive language, etc.

Choose this session if you wish to focus on speaking and using specialized vocabulary for discussing business topics (local, national and international)...

If you wish to follow a textbook, I have several Cambridge textbooks I recommend, supplemented with videos, audio files and authentic articles from business and current events magazines / sites.
