Style of Teaching
Online Business English courses are delivered on a one-to-one or small group basis, and follow a mutually agreed syllabus in a fairly formal and well-structured style. However, this does not mean that lessons are delivered as a series of lectures! Constant verbal interaction with your teacher and/or other members of a group is vital in order to build the confidence, assertiveness and negotiation skills which are fundamental to successful business exchanges. Many “real life” work situations are simulated, and you learn how to communicate effectively and sensitively, with constant advice and guidance from your teacher. It is during these interactions that any limitations are identified, with targeted exercises given as homework in order to strengthen areas of difficulty. Indeed, the review and reinforcement teaching style forms an important part of the course.
