Business English



Getting the job done… in English

Do you work in English? Is English your second language? Are you missing the confidence to get the job done…in English? Do you need to improve in areas such as grammar, spelling, pronunciation and writing? Would you like to become more confident in writing reports and emails, giving presentations, and having meetings in English? Then this is the course for you.

Our classroom is online

During your Business English course, you will work on your writing, speaking, listening and reading skills. For homework assignments, we always work online using Google Classroom. This platform helps the teacher to manage the students’ learning efficiently and effectively. For the lessons, we either meet at your office or online, depending on your specific needs and location.

Feedback and Corrections

Written assignments include the language of emails, reports, presentations and newsletters. Spoken assignments include the language of meetings, presentations, discussions and interviews. Generally, the classes are tailored to the needs of each group or individual. That means we can adapt the course to focus on the language that is used in your industry. Each student receives individual feedback and corrections from the teacher. Feedback is one of the most valuable aspects of the course, simply because we learn the most from our mistakes.

Our Main Focus

The Business English course focuses on the following:


  • Building your confidence writing emails for work
  • Offering feedback on your written and spoken English
  • Identifying common mistakes, false friends and bad habits 
  • Having a better understanding of how English grammar works
  • Broadening your vocabulary and idiom by using online resources
  • Completing the course with an English language toolkit fit for the future

Business Grammar Builder

The book we use is the best-selling ‘Business Grammar Builder’ by Paul Emmerson. The Business Grammar Builder is a grammar and reference book for professionals who need to maintain and practice their English in a business context. With lots of exercises, an answer key and audio files for language recognition and pronunciation skills. It’s one of the best books to enrich business vocabulary.

Lifelong Learners of English

All our resources are accessible on a personalised Google Classroom web page. That way you can always find and use them regularly, even after the course has ended. The idea is that the resources are still accessible for at least two years after completion of the course. This is to make sure the learning continues going forward. In my mind, we’re all lifelong learners of English.
