Business English course

Is it for me?

Are you or do you wish to become a market leader in your field? Would you like to perfect your knowledge of business English terms specific to a certain domain? Then the Business English course is the right path for you to take!

What will I learn?

Business English combines specific vocabulary with conversational topics which is a great way to become more comfortable in the English you use during your business meetings and generally in your work environment. In this course, you will learn and have the opportunity to use vocabulary specific to various fields of activity at different levels and acquire business-related correspondence, presentation, negotiation, meeting and small talk skills. The course will provide a welcome expansion of your vocabulary and a safe environment which nurtures your confidence in using English.

The method used is Market Leader, a five-level course that caters to the needs of those who want to learn English with a focus on business and those who want to improve their general business practices while learning English. The book makes use of Financial Times material to cover topics such as buying and selling, mergers and acquisitions, people skills, marketing and human resources, while interviews and case studies bring the world of business into the classroom.

Each class has a maximum of 6 participants, which ensures you get the most out of it. The teacher provides personal feedback, you get a lot of time to speak and simultaneously you learn from classmates who have other questions and experiences.

Evening & day classes

We offer this course during the day and in the evenings at 17:15-19:15 or 19:30-21:30. The exact day and time will be decided at the beginning of each block on the basis of the students’ availability.

The classes were dynamic and adapted to the interests of everybody

I had the pleasure of taking an English exam preparation course with Oana and my experience was very successful. In 3 months my English has improved a lot and I feel much more confident now. The classes were dynamic and adapted to the interests of everybody as well. If you are looking for an experience like that I truly recommend taking this course! – Paula

Very satisfactory

I signed up to prepare for the IELTS test. With only a month and a half of study the result was very satisfactory. I would recommend this academy to anyone in the same situation. Adrià

Great teacher

Laurel is a great teacher. I used to discuss the main ideas of my papers with her and we used to have really interesting talks about gender studies and social science in general. This kind of talks improved my arguments and reinforced my ideas in the texts. The course was very useful.
