Are some professions more ethical than others? What makes a great leader? Which communication styles do you use? How do companies gain a competitive edge? These are some of the questions we will discuss on this course.
Learn vocabulary connected to making offers and concessions, checking understanding, stating a problem and diplomatically giving bad news.
In addition, we will discuss competition on the international market and read the article McDonald's stirs up battle with Starbucks. You will also listen to a negotiation about entry to the Swedish market and role play various negotiation situations.
In terms of grammar and vocabulary, we will study, for example, the passive tense and the use of that, which and who.
For written assignments, you will have the opportunity to write a report outlining the decisions made at a board meeting, an email summarising business stategies and a self assessment of your performance at an appraisal interview.

Teaching material
We recommend that you buy the book Market Leader 3rd Edition Extra Intermediate Course book with DVD-ROM Pack (Pearson Education ESL), ISBN 9781292134772, 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.
