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, for example, 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 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.

Wynn Stewart

Wynn 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
