I would definitely recommend this course! I feel more confident teaching Business English now. Very insightful set of resources and tools provided to us. We didn’t only leave with a ready to work with syllabus but also a new outlook on Business English as a teaching field!
Great course! We looked at some very useful resources and the needs analysis session was very insightful. I feel much more prepared to teach Business English now!
I thoroughly recommend doing this course which is very informative. The pre-course work is extensive but very interesting and even if you don’t intend teaching Business English immediately, it will broaden your attitude for teaching.
Really good day! Lots of pointers for the resources and ideas specific to business students of English for Specific Purposes. I think I might have been avoiding this client group up to now, but now I can see that this “world” is more open to me. Well paced and professionally delivered. Thank you!
Very practical and useful course from the pre-course materials to the final one-day session. Every aspect considered from needs analysis to learner preferences with a wealth of resources and ideas for activities. Enthusiastic and knowledgeable trainer!
The course has served its purpose totally. I feel confident to start teaching Business English. The trainer was dynamic and very encouraging. I loved the training course as it covered many of the areas regarding teaching Business English and English for Specific Purposes. Thank you!
