Course Description:

Business English is designed for first- or second-year English majors who want to improve their English for business or professional purposes. The course is an elective in the Business Culture module. Business English is topic-based and incorporates practice in listening, speaking, reading, writing and translation. Students train in classroom simulations that reflect the standard of business practice that they are likely to encounter in their future workplaces. These situations are a balance between controlled practice and meaningful communication. Course outcomes are students’ improvement in their practical skills as well as the acquisition of fundamental business knowledge. This course prepares students for advanced business courses, which are taught in English in later years, and for entering into the business community after graduation.
