The Business English courses at Language Matters emphasise teaching the skills necessary to do well in the workplace. Learners engage in practise telephone conversations, meetings, and negotiations, and also focus on improving written, spoken and culturally-appropriate negotiation skills that are used in business situations. They also learn how to interact with colleagues and clients through dialogues and role-plays that focus on Australian English and include idioms as well as formal and informal speech. The class includes group work involving case studies where students discuss company issues and brainstorm solutions to a variety of situations. The course is structured to help learners put English to use in the workplace.
Business English is available from an elementary to an advanced level.
