English for Business

English for Business

The Essential English Centre offers a professional English for Business programme for those who use English in their professional lives, or who wish to work in the field of international business.
On this course, students will study on the General English course for 3 hours each morning and change to the Business specific module in the afternoon. The Business module focuses on a variety of business related themes, for example sales and negotiation techniques, management styles and marketing and business communication skills. The programme includes effective methods of producing authentic language, including role plays and presentations.

Students can expect the group classes to be very small (usually only 3 students) and can bring specific learning requests to the lesson. The minimum age for this course is 21 to ensure a certain level of professionalism is maintained in the class.

 Your teacher will use a range of materials during the lesson and the main focus is on using the language you learn.
