This course gives students a solid foundation and a working knowledge of business English. Various aspects of business English will be covered, including telephoning and emailing, participation in meetings, and presentations. The class is taught at an intermediate level.
I am uniquely qualified to teach business English as I worked in the corporate business world in London for many years before becoming a teacher. I worked in the areas of sales, legal, magazines, and online, and I use this experience to give my students the best training possible.
We do lots of practical work in my lessons and conversation is very important so no more boring grammar lessons! My lessons will give you the skills and tips you really need to do your job, or to get a new job!

Teaching students how to read, write and speak English in class sizes from one student to 16. Larger classes can have a broad range of abilities, so providing extra material for stronger students, and easier material for weaker students is a concern that is often addressed.
