Students learn to write clearly and accurately, improving grammar and business English vocabulary. Students use a computer lab for assignments, helping them to develop valuable ITC skills and become familiar with English in an office-type environment.
The Core course is concentrated and meant to get the material into the students head, the companion course Practicing English keeps it there.
Students learn a variety of work and business communication skills and how to use them in situations such as meetings, interviews, presentations, telephone calls and negotiations. There is also a focus on pronunciation and oral fluency.
Students explore various business-related concepts such as marketing, finance, management and international trade, as well as looking at the principles of business in terms of cultural differences in international communication and the use of idiomatic expressions. This part of the course involves working on individual and group projects, as well as a series of field trips and practical case studies.
