The globalization of business, trade and finance has led to an increasing demand for a specialized study of English language skills and language directly linked to business. These demands highlight the importance of learning business English. These are usually met by courses offering General English Business skills or by focusing on particular areas or English for special purposes such as Accounting, Marketing, and Management etc.
Initially, the needs of the learner are analyzed to ensure that necessary skills, target language and target situations are included in the learning process. Essentially, the learners heavily influence what is being taught to ensure they meet their aims and objectives for entry into third level business studies, or to meet the demands of a working business environment. This personalized needs analysis enables teachers to establish your initial level and particular skills required. For example, do you need to improve business English writing, focus on business vocabulary or perhaps, develop better speaking and listening skills in a specific business environment?
