Class format and activities

Classes will be student-centred and practical.

Students will interact through pair work as well as in groups, practising real-life business skills such as vocabulary for meetings and giving the perfect presentation.

In week one individual needs and the needs of the group will be discussed and these will be integrated within the course (where appropriate), therefore ensuring flexibility to tailor the course to needs of the
students.

The course will focus on the following topics:
* Business writing (email, letter, report, memo): Including useful terminology and getting the right register (formal/informal).
* Business conversation (telephone, face-to-face, conducting a meeting): How to network, negotiate effectively and what to say in meetings.
* Business presentation (content, structure, delivery): Making a perfect presentation with constructive tips, practice and feedback.

In order to ensure that you make the best possible progress on your course, you will have regular and detailed feedback from your tutor, in a constructive and supportive environment.
