About the courses:
All the ESI Business English courses offer a mix of Business and General English as well as conversation practice. In the group training, we focus on all areas of communication and language skills for business, professional or social purposes: reading, writing, listening and speaking.

Who is this for?
Anyone wanting to communicate successfully or improve their language skills for general business situations; including marketing, sales, management, finance, meetings etc.
On these courses, participants will have the opportunity:
• to communicate with others in practical, business-oriented situations
• to express themselves in English with greater fluency, accuracy and confidence
• to handle themselves in a variety of business and social contexts
The content will be supported by systematic work on core grammatical structures, vocabulary patterns and pronunciation. Actual content depends on pre-course Needs Analysis (intake), and is subject to on-going change as the course evolves.

Some sample topics include:

Introductions
