() The activities in the Business Basics series, whether listening, speaking or writing, are designed to simulate activities which are as close as possible to the real-life business situations in which students are going to find themselves.
The language structures covered in Business Basics are at Elementary (A1 ) and Pre-intermediate (A2) levels.
Business Basics is especially focused on interactive, student-oriented teaching techniques.
Students have the opportunity to actively engage in communication activities that can be readily transferred to their real-life work or to a pre-experience learner setting.
The latter appear at the end of the Teacher’s Notes and need to be prepared in advance.
Using the photocopiable resources helps to give students optimal learning – in an interactive and enjoyable setting.
You will find the level at the top of each page of teacher’s notes.
With business English, some business-specific vocabulary concepts and fixed expressions may seem to be at a slightly higher level.
You and the rest of the students can help to create a collaborative learning atmosphere where everyone helps each other to correct their mistakes.
