You are now at a stage in your career that demands extra challenges when it comes to communication and relationship building.

What makes a good communicator? What do we do when communication breaks down? How do we improve customer relations? These are some of the topics we will discuss on this course.

You will learn useful language when asking for repetition, clarification and information. In addition, you will practise dealing with technical issues and summarising a call.

Case studies linked to business topics will be discussed in order to broaden your vocabulary and use the communication skills that you have learned. You will read and analyse case studies about the price of success, the globalisation of a company and building customer loyalty.

You will also work with you fellow participants and exchange views on doing business internationally. For written assignments, you will write a sales letter, minutes from a brainstorming session and an email outlining the reasons for decisions you have taken.

Teaching material
We recommend that you buy the book Market Leader 3rd Edition Extra Upper Intermediate Coursebook with DVD-ROM Pack (Pearson Education ESL, ISBN 9781292134819, 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.

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 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.

Wynn Stewart

Wynn underviser i engelsk på Cambridge Institute. Han er født i Californien og er halv amerikaner og halv brite, eftersom has mor var "andengenerationsindvandrer" i USA (af dansk afstamning), hans far var oprindelig fra Skotland, og hans farmor var nordmand. Wynn har boet i USA, Japan, England og Danmark, i den rækkefølge. Fordi hans baggrund er lidt indviklet, plejer han blot at fortælle, at han betragter sig selv som en "verdensborger". Han er gift med Anne-Grete og er far til fire amerikanske/britiske/danske børn.

Wynn har en master i engelsk og samfundsfag. Har taler engelsk og dansk og kan også en del japansk og lidt spansk. Han holder af sprog og sprogundervisning og elsker at se forbedring i elever. Han kan undervise på alle niveauer, men foretrækker CAE, Proficiency og businessengelsk.
Wynn er glad for to citater, der mere eller mindre opsummerer hans syn på undervisning: "Be the guide on the side, not the sage on the stage" og "They don't care how much you know until they know how much you care".

Hans fritidsinteresser inkluderer læsning, løbetræning, film og brætspil. Han tror på, at hver person har et formål i livet, og at "der er mere mellem himmel og jord".

Wynn anbefaler:
Food and drink:
Pizza, pasta, a durum shawarma, japanese "okonomiyaki" or a good Caeser salad, washed down with a mango lassi (I don't drink alcohol or smoke)
Learning tips: Remember to read and listen. Be curious and willing to make mistakes. Practice may make perfect, but don't be a perfectionist.
Places to visit: London! If you're tired of London, you're tired of life. 
Literature: Anything by Ray Bradbury, John Steinbeck or C.S. Lewis
