Description

Target Group:
The B2 Business English intensive language level course is for students who want to expand on their previous English language knowledge at an upper intermediate level with a focus on the business context. The course is suitable for students who have completed B1-level or have approximately 360 classroom hours of English language lessons.

Students who have completed a general English language B2 course would find some of the course repetitive, but would learn new vocabulary and specialized communication activities for a business context.

 

Content:
The focus of this course is on upper intermediate English language skills. Attention is paid to the four primary skills of reading, writing, speaking, and listening in a business context. The course is rooted in an English for specific purposes pedagogy with the incorporation of some business theory, but grammatical structures are applicable to other contexts.

Regular and active participation is required for successful completion of the course. This includes the completion of homework in order to continue practicing and consolidating what has been learned in the classroom. Attendance is compulsory.

 

Assessemnt:
Regular and active participation in the class. Completion of homework assignments. Klausur on the last day of class.

 

Special Note:
This is an intensive course that completes the entire B2 level in two weeks. Class meetings are for 6 hours per day for two weeks.
