Learning English for Business Communication

Learning English for Business Communication

Our Business and Professional English training , whether in-company, to students of business, or at a language  training institution, is appropriate for the learner but also interesting and stimulating for both the classroom and the real-world professional situation. 

Business English is more than just General English with different vocabulary. The profile and needs of the learner, and the role of the teacher, is often very different from traditional teaching.

Where to start? What do our learners want, need and expect? How can we meet those needs?
