Any business English course worth its weight in salt will develop the core skills required by business professionals in their day-to-day working life: reading financial texts; developing key vocabulary; listening and responding to presentations and talks; and communicating in a variety of job-specific situations; however, with the world in the grips of economic and political unrest I think it is obvious that we need to be looking at other ways of packaging and presenting the actual business we teach.
Food for thought for ELT professionals on the go; change and changemakers, trends, what's hot and what's not as well as ideas for full-blown lessons.
Welcome to the first Academic Study Kit blog post.
Every month we will focus on a different topic and this month we will kick off with the Banker Blog. Each Banker blog will focus on a hot topic from the world of banking and finance and we will be giving you some ideas for activities that can be used as warmers, fillers or full-blown lessons. This month’s feature is bailout, which has been the word on everyone’s lips since news of the Greek banking crisis hit the news.
