A2.1 Business conversation and grammar for elementary level
This course is for you if you have already mastered the basics of the English language and would like to develop your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills further.
You will increase your confidence because you will improve your pronunciation and learn how to handle more advanced situations in English such as how to talk to dissatisfied customers or employees and solve other problems at work. You will also be able to ask about the job ambitions of job applicants and ask other relevant questions related to job interviews.
At the same time, the accuracy of your grammar will improve once you have learnt, e.g. the difference between some and any and can use adverbs of frequency such as never, always, rarely and often. You will also improve specific work-related skills such as having conversations on the telephone and introducing yourself and others. You will have the opportunity to extend your vocabulary with useful business-related words.
In order to be able to manage social situations such as eating in restaurants with business partners from other countries, it is important that you have the necessary vocabulary for, e.g. ordering in a restaurant, and that you are aware of the various cultural differences so you can avoid potentially embarrassing situations. Therefore, the course also focuses on ensuring you are able to handle such situations.
You will be expected to complete 3 written assignments, such as writing business emails, for which your teacher will give you feedback.
We recommend that you buy the book Market Leader 3rd Edition Extra Elementary Course book with DVD-ROM Pack (Pearson Education ESL), ISBN 9781292134758, before the course starts. The book has been developed in cooperation with The Financial Times. We will study selected pages from chapters 1-3.
You can buy the book here: academicbooks.dk or at Academic Books, Øster Farimagsgade 5A, 1353 Copenhagen K.
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.
This course is for you if you have already completed courses at A2 level, elementary courses at another language school, or you have picked up some English elsewhere and would like to develop your skills further.
The number of students on all courses at the Cambridge Institute is just 4-8. Small classes mean that your teacher has more time to help you personally during each lesson.
Preparation time: 1-2 hours per week.
Note! We expect that we can run the course as normal classroom instruction. However, we always follow the authorities' recommendations. Therefore, in August we will take stock of the situation and make any necessary adjustments to the courses. For example, in relation to how many students can sit in a room or whether or not we need to change a course to online teaching and the like.
