Business English Intermediate Course

About this Course

Universities are striving for greater internationalisation in teaching and research, requiring greater use of English by non-native speakers. Multinational corporations and small traders need to use English, the language of business, to succeed in business.

Our Business English Course, delivered through Cambridge LMS and remote online learning methods, is intended to help our students build strong foundations in grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, and skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing. It also enables them to be effective in the corporate world.

The use of Business English as a multilingual and flexible medium of communication will allow flexibility and equality in dealing with the diversity of skills and access to resources for organisations and employees. This programme is suitable for university students and working adults with a decent foundation in English.
