Online Course: Business Speaking


Program Description

EJO English Language Online Learning

Learn wherever you are with an internet connection, home, office or somewhere else! Learn at times convenient for you and work at your own speed over a prescribed time period!

With so much flexibility, learning online is ideal for those who lead busy lives.

Some of our students take these courses before or after taking another EJO course (English Home Lessons or an International Summer Programme). Many take them independently.

Business Speaking is suitable for:

Intermediate – Upper-Intermediate learners who want to improve their core English skills in the most efficient way possible

550 - 900 B1 - B2

Business Speaking offers focused, effective practice of English skills in over 30 common business settings. Those who are willing to study 2-3 hours a week over several months will see a significant improvement in their level and in international exam test scores.

Each lesson follows a clear and proven learning cycle to build skills systematically. Students are exposed to over 600 key business expressions in natural contexts that feature speakers from 6 different countries including the USA, UK, Canada, Australia, Singapore, and India. The language that is taught can be easily applied across industries making this a highly practical course in Business English. On completion, students will have a much broader range of vocabulary, and be able to use a new language effectively to interact with clients and co-workers with confidence.

Lessons are broken down into short modules so they can be completed either on-the-go on a mobile device, or on a PC or tablet. Students can begin a lesson, take a break and simply pick up where they left off. Each lesson ends with a test in a dynamic, role-play format to assess if students are able to use new language appropriately in the given context.
