Learn useful vocabulary and phrases in relation to finance, consultancy work and stategy. Discuss how good your organisation is at managing its cashflow. Why do companies hire management consultants and what do they gain from this? How best can a company communicate its business strategy?
We will read and discuss articles concerning the banking sector and five-year stategic plans. Additional topics for discussion will include creativity, socialising and negotiation proposals. We will also read case studies concerning angel investors, an airline's strategy and a consultant's work with the mobile phone market in South Africa.
Written English
Written tasks will include an email to a colleague outlining an investment proposal and a formal email to a consultant summarising the main points of a negotiation.
You will receive feedback from your teacher and discuss relevant grammar points with him/her.

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 7-9.
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.
