Business English

Business English courses are aimed at working professionals or those seeking employment in which English is a requirement or is desired.

Evening courses

The evening courses are offered at the BSN Language Centre at upper intermediate and advanced levels and are held once a week. Similar to our general English courses, they cover grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation and all four skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking but the contexts all relate to the business world. Our teachers use both commercially produced and authentic materials, and whenever appropriate we incorporate students’ real-life tasks.

The face-to-face lessons last for 2 hours. The courses are designed to fit into a busy work schedule and offer a more flexible solution to improve your English at work.

There are no specific starting dates. The courses run all year round. Students are tested and if there is a suitable course running, they can join from 1 week after the registration process has been completed.

Unless you have been living under a rock, you know that the people of the UK woke up on June 24 to learn that they had voted in favour of leaving the European Union, otherwise know as Brexit. After an emotional campaign, 33.5 million votes were cast in the referendum with 17.4 million voting for Leave, and 16.1 million for Remain. Months of warnings from both camps focused on both the political and economic ramifications and rewards.

In today’s 925 English lesson. we’re going to learn how to talk about your job.

There are lots of situations where you meet someone new and you want to tell them about your job. Maybe they ask you about it, or you just want to introduce yourself. So how do you do that? Do you just say “I am a salesman” and that’s it? No, you need to say a bit more than that.

925 English is a new business English podcast for beginner and intermediate learners. 925 English lessons focus on chunks of language and English expressions that you can use in work and business. Each 925 English lesson features English phrases you can use in different situations and advice on why and how we use them in Business English .

The all new Business English App is now available in the Apple App Store. We ve completely redesigned and rebuilt the app and added a login for BEP premium members to access to all the lesson.

We have also started work on an Android version of the app which will include the same features as the iOS app (including the member login). The developer has committed to finishing the Android version by early September and I feel fairly confident that they will be able to deliver.

Welcome back to the Skills 360 for today s lesson on how to connect with your audience while you’re actually delivering your presentation.

It’s easy to leave your connection with the audience to chance. I mean, you might think that giving a presentation should be about conveying a message rather than “connecting” with your audience. But I assure you, whatever your message is, you’ll get it across with much greater success if you have a good connection with your audience. And that connection isn t a chance occurrence. You have to work on it.

How to Write a Business Report for English Learners

By Kenneth Beare. English as 2nd Language Expert

Kenneth is an ESL teacher, trainer, and content developer. He provides consulting services for English language learning projects through Englishfeed. You can follow Kenneth on Twitter. on his Google profile: Kenneth Beare. or on Facebook to stay up to date on his latest English learning materials.

Updated July 28, 2015.

If you would like to learn how to write a business report in English follow these tips and use the example report as a template on which to base your own business report. First of all, business reports provide important information for management that is timely and factual. English learners writing business reports need to make sure that the language is precise and concise. The writing style used for business reports should present information without strong opinions, but rather as direct and accurately as possible.

Continue Reading Below

Linking language should be used to connect ideas and sections of the business report. This example business report presents the four essentials that every business report should include:

Terms of reference refer to the terms on which the business report is written.

The procedure describe the method that was used to collect data for the report.

The findings describe the data or other important information the report produced.

Conclusions are drawn on the findings which provide reasons for recommendations.

The recommendations are specific suggestions made based on the conclusions of the report.

Read the short example business report and follow the tips below. Teachers can print this examples for use in class in lessons using sound teaching writing strategies .

Reports: Example Report

Margaret Anderson, Director of Personnel has requested this report on employee benefits satisfaction. The report was to be submitted to her by 28 June.

A representative selection of 15% of all employees were interviewed in the period between April 1st and April 15th concerning:

Continue Reading Below

  1. Overall satisfaction with our current benefits package
  2. Problems encountered when dealing with the personnel department
  3. Suggestions for the improvement of communication policies
  4. Problems encountered when dealing with our HMO
  1. Employees were generally satisfied with the current benefits package.
  2. Some problems were encountered when requesting vacation due to what is perceived as long approval waiting periods.
  3. Older employees repeatedly had problems with HMO prescription drugs procedures.
  4. Employees between the ages of 22 and 30 report few problems with HMO.
  5. Most employees complain about the lack of dental insurance in our benefits package.
  6. The most common suggestion for improvement was for the ability to process benefits requests online.
  1. Older employees, those over 50, are having serious problems with our HMO s ability to provide prescription drugs.
  2. Our benefits request system needs to be revised as most complaints concerning in-house processing.
  3. Improvements need to take place in personnel department response time.
  4. Information technology improvements should be considered as employees become more technologically savvy.
  1. Meet with HMO representatives to discuss the serious nature of complaints concerning prescription drug benefits for older employees.
  2. Give priority to vacation request response time as employees need faster approval in order to be able to plan their vacations.
  3. Take no special actions for the benefits package of younger employees.
  4. Discuss the possibility of adding an online benefits requests system to our company Intranet.

Important Points to Remember

  • A report is divided into four areas:
    • Terms of Reference – This section gives background information on the reason for the report. It usually includes the person requesting the report.
    • Procedure – The procedure provides the exact steps taken and methods used for the report.
    • Findings – The findings point out discoveries made during the course of the report investigation.
    • Conclusions – The conclusions provide logical conclusions based on the findings.
    • Recommendations – The recommendations state actions that the writer of the report feels need to be taken based on the findings and conclusions.
  • Reports should be concise and factual. Opinions are given in the conclusions section. However, these opinions should be based on facts presented in the findings .
  • Use simple tenses (usually the present simple) to express facts.
  • Use the imperative form (Discuss the possibility. Give priority. etc.) in the recommendations section as these apply to the company as a whole.
