What qualities and skills should a good manager have? How do you best deal with conflict? How would you describe your product? These are some of the topics we will discuss on this course. Therefore, you will learn vocabulary connected to describing professional qualities,negotiating and launching a product.
You will read the article A path to salvation through innovation and write a report on a product presentation.
You will also discuss case studies relating to the topics and write an email of recommendation on how to solve staff problems.
In terms of grammar, we will study, e.g. reported speech, the conditional and adjectives using prefixes such as un, in, im etc.

As doing business internationally is an important part of professional communication, we will practise presentations outlining different aspects of your working culture.
We will prepare a short talk entitled Aspects of my culture that a business visitor might find unusual or difficult.

Teaching material
We recommend that you buy the book Market Leader 3rd Edition Extra Pre-Intermediate Course book with DVD-ROM Pack (Pearson Education ESL), ISBN 9781292134796, before the course starts. The book has been developed in cooperation with The Financial Times. We will study selected pages from chapters 10-12.

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.
