Business English


Business English Course

The Business English Course is for adults with or without business experience who wish to learn or improve their level of English language for career or work purposes in small groups of no more than 6.

The Business Intensive course is for adults who want to combine their study of Business English in small groups with individual lessons.

By following this course you will:

  • ·Improve your fluency and increase your confidence when speaking about a variety of business related-topics
  • ·Learn successful interviewing techniques to confidently apply for a position requiring English
  • ·Improve phone etiquette, an important part of the business world
  • ·Improve your general level of English

What will you study?
Your teacher carries out a needs analysis with your group on the first day of your course to define the course objectives. You may choose to focus on expanding your business vocabulary, to increase your grammar awareness or improve your pronunciation to become more easily understood when conducting business with other English speakers, either native or non-native. Topics are varied and depend on your professional needs. You may wish to discuss the latest financial headlines, exchange opinions on business ethics or learn the language of job interviews in English. You discuss business case studies and participate in role-plays such as negotiations and meetings which give you the opportunity to improve fluency in real-life business settings.

While most other English language courses offered at The British International Institute are offered at all levels, we recommend that to enroll in one of our Business English courses you should be at least of Elementary level (A2 on the  Common European Framework Reference scale).

Our academic staff determines your language level either through the BII online placement test (which must be submitted at least 7 days before you start your course) or through a short test which you sit for on your first day at school.

While following your course, you can continue to improve your English through self-study by accessing our BII e-Learning Program from the time you enroll until three months after you finish your course.
