Teaching Business English – ELC-T3
English Language Centre

The Teaching Business English course is a very practical course, designed for all teachers of business English. In addition, you will have plenty of opportunities to develop your general language skills and review aspects of contemporary Britain.

This very practical course is designed to support teachers by:
- developing comprehensive understanding of the business world
- extending their range of techniques for teaching business English
- supporting language awareness
- raising awareness of strategies to continue professional learning
- improving confidence in materials design and selection

Input will be provided in a variety of ways (including seminars and practical workshops, trainer summaries and demonstrations) that take account of the course participants’ different learning preferences and styles. Participants will be encouraged to share their own ideas and experience, and develop networks with participants from other countries. There will be opportunities throughout the course to exploit the UK context by collecting relevant authentic materials, making contact with native speakers and taking part in the school’s social and cultural programme, and outings.

A preparation pack is sent to participants before the course. Before the start of the course, participants will be asked to complete a precourse questionnaire and a pre-course task which will enable the trainers to focus more specifically on the exact needs of the participants.

Participants will complete a study journal during their stay to reflect on the new ideas they have experienced and on how they will incorporate them into their teaching. They also develop a classroom project. Follow up support is available via an alumni email group and participants will be encouraged to report on their progress. A course VLE will be set up for participants to collaborate and share online.
