Now you have reached the level - both in relation to your English language skills and your understanding of conducting business internationally - where you are able to study/discuss things in depth. On this course, we will look at useful vocabulary and phrases in relation to finance, HR and conflict resolution. You will discuss how good your organisation is at managing its cashflow and employees.

To this end, we will read and discuss articles concerning ethical dilemmas, consultancy and banking. Additional topics for discussion will include problem solving and negotiations.

Written English
Written tasks will include an email, which you will be asked to improve in order to avoid conflict. Especially when it comes to writing, the small details often determine whether you manage to achieve your aim. Therefore, the methods you can use to avoid a conflict when sending an email can also be used when you want to achieve other goals with your emails.
You will also be expected to write a press release 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 5-8.
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 a maximum of 8. Small classes mean that your teacher has more time to help you personally during each lesson.

Preparation time: 1-2 hours per week.

Tara recommends
Food and drink: Seafood is amazing in Ireland. The Galway Oyster and Seafood festival is well worth a visit. Irish lamb, traditional bread, cheese and anything dairy are also a must. 
Learning tips: Music can be a fun way of learning a new language. Listen to songs whilst reading the lyrics or singing along. This is how I improved my Danish pronunciation. Reading a book and discussing it with a friend is also enjoyable and productive.
Places to visit: Connemara, in the west of Ireland. Oscar Wilde referred to it as “A Savage Beauty”
Literature: Poetry, plays and crime novels. What she’d recommend ; The boy in the striped pyjamas ( John Boyne), The Field ( John B Keane), The Lost Symbol ( Dan Brown), The poetry of William Butler Yeats.
