This course is for you if you have already mastered English at a high level, but would like to fine-tune your business English further so you become even better and are better able to avoid potential misunderstandings.

Therefore, we will focus on high-level skills such as summarising decisions, making an impact in presentations and rounding off meetings.
We will also look at how you can improve the impression you make on your business partners and colleagues, and you will have the opportunity to hone your social skills when it comes to engaging in small talk and breaking the ice when meeting new contacts.

You have reached such a high level with English that you will be able to discuss serious issues with your business contacts. Therefore, one of the chapters in the course book focuses on fossil fuels, CO2 emissions and renewable energy sources, as the environment is becoming an increasingly important subject for discussion in the light of climate change.

We will also look at useful vocabulary/phrases and situations in which the relationship with the customer plays a role. To this end, we will read and discuss articles concerning customer choice and preference.

For written assignments, you will have the chance to practise writing formal letters and emails for which you will receive feedback from your teacher.

Teaching material
We recommend that you buy the book Market Leader 3rd Edition Extra Advanced Course book with DVD-ROM Pack (Pearson Education ESL), ISBN 9781292135274, before the course starts. The book has been developed in cooperation with The Financial Times. We will study selected pages from chapters 1-4.
You can buy the book at academicbooks.dk or on Amazon:
//www.amazon.de/-/en/Margaret-OKeeffe/dp/1292134739/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1628626349&sr=8-2

Practical information
You will have access to our online learning platform, Moodle, where you will find the course plan, teaching material, homework and other useful online resources for learning English, which your teacher has selected for you and your class. Via Moodle, you can also communicate with your teacher and fellow students.

The number of students on all courses at the Cambridge Institute is just 5-8. Small classes mean that your teacher has more time to help you personally during each lesson.

Preparation time: 1-2 hours per week.
Vi tilpasser undervisningen til den aktuelle situation
På Studieskolen viser erfaringen, at man bedst lærer sprog ved at øve sig og tale meget. Det gør vi normalt i klassen, hvor I noget af tiden arbejder i par eller i grupper, så I når at sige så meget som muligt i løbet af timen, og underviseren går rundt mellem jer. På mange hold laver vi også øvelser, hvor I skal op og stå og gå rundt mellem hinanden.
Pga. covid-19 er det ikke muligt at undervise på den måde, for vi kan ikke holde nok afstand. Derfor tilpasser vi hele tiden vores metoder til den aktuelle situation, så vi kan holde afstand, og så det er sikkert for både undervisere og kursister at være på Studieskolen.
NB! Hvis vi på et tidspunkt må lukke for undervisning med fysisk fremmøde på grund af corona, fortsætter holdet med undervisning online. Det kan også ske, at vi må gennemføre en enkelt eller to undervisningsgange online - fx hvis underviseren skal testes.
Onlineundervisning på coronalukkede hold betragtes som almindelig gennemført undervisning, uanset om den enkelte deltager ønsker at gøre brug af denne mulighed eller ej. Hvis vi må ændre til onlineundervisning, bortfalder kompensation i form af tilbagebetaling eller erstatningsundervisning. Husk, at du altid kan annullere din tilmelding op til en uge, før dit kursus starter.
