ESL Program Introduction
The English Language and Business Culture (ELBC) session is an intensive 1-month program that immerses participants in practical academic English and English-speaking business culture.
The ELBC furthers participants’ knowledge and use of core academic and business communications skills in English, and provides them with the opportunity to experience English-speaking cultures and business environments.
Participants will develop the skills, fluency, and confidence they need to communicate effectively in English – in a range of settings. They will improve their overall abilities in both spoken and written English, as well as their understanding of English-speaking business cultures. On completion of the ELBC, participants will be better prepared to use English at work and in their studies; and possess a deeper understanding of English-speaking business settings.
The ELBC is designed for anyone at the high-intermediate level or above who would like to enhance their English language and communications skills in preparation for further education, university study, or employment in an English-speaking business environment.
Instructional and practice materials are selected to facilitate mastery of all essential skill areas: listening, speaking, reading, writing, grammar, and vocabulary. Course materials may include textbooks, magazine and newspaper articles, the Internet, ESL software, radio and television programs, and movies.
Participants will engage in a range of hands-on activities including cultural and academic discussions, business meetings, and negotiations; reading, discussing, and writing about current and business topics; using business vocabulary; reading and discussing case studies, business texts, and articles; developing business presentation skills; listening to and discussing media broadcasts; and preparing oral presentations. Much of this work is completed working with classmates on group projects.
