About the Business English Elective
In the Business English Elective class, students learn to function effectively in an English work environment. The class will cover a range of core business communication skills that include:
- Managing Meetings
- Business Writing
Each week, the class introduces new vocabulary and commonly used business idioms and expressions that cover a wide range of business topics such as Sales and Marketing, Human Resources, Management, and Finance. Students participate in real problem solving activities to practice their business English communication skills. There is also class time to review specific problem areas in grammar and speaking that relate to these activities. The goal is to make students feel more comfortable and more confident working in an English speaking environment.
Small group classes and one-to-one programs of Business English are offered.
*The classes are generally designed for the Upper Intermediate and Advanced levels.
A placement exam will be administered to all students interested in taking the class.
About the Teacher
“The skills I teach in my Business English classes have helped hundreds of students pursue their personal and professional goals more effectively. In my 15 years of teaching experience, this is the one accomplishment I am most proud of because I know that my students have benefited directly from the knowledge and experience I bring to the classroom. As a former business analyst at major international financial firms on Wall Street, I understand the challenges of the workplace and how important it is to have a global perspective. Also, having both an MBA and a professional teaching degree allows me to pass on insights to my students while creating a classroom environment where students learn to help themselves as they work to improve their communication skills.
Although I left the business world to pursue my passion for teaching, I continue to work closely with business professionals as a private consultant. In this way, I continue to learn more about the realities workers face in the international business environment today. This provides me with valuable information that I can pass on to my students to help them in their career goals.”
