What is Business English? - TEFL Blog


Wed, 15 Apr 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas What is Business English? The simplest definition of "business English" is English as it is used in the business world, e.g, in trade, commerce, and finance.

Mon, 20 Apr 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas Teaching Business English: Challenge Accepted The business world has already gone global, and English has become the lingua franca among companies and meetings. However, being a teacher in a developing country such as Argentina can be quite a challenge when teaching English for specific purposes. That is because there is not a high demand for learning the L2 in companies, and if there is so, the working conditions are not very favorable. The lack of formation, the setting, the group, the working hours, and the material available are some of the issues that teachers may review when offered a kind of job like that.

5 Advantages and Disadvantages of Teaching Business English - TEFL Blog


Thu, 28 Mar 2019 Jon ITTT Alumni Experiences 5 Advantages and Disadvantages of Teaching Business English Teaching “Business English” is an interesting context for an English teacher.

On the contrary, there is nothing to fear as essentially you are still an English teacher and your students (clients) often have the business knowledge they need, but can just not express themselves in English. So it is all about adapting and taking your normal teaching approach from the general English class, and making it work in the...  [Read more]
