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.
Vi tilpasser undervisningen til den aktuelle situation
På Studieskolen viser erfaringen, at man bedst lærer sprog ved at øve sig og tale meget. Det gør vi normalt i klassen, hvor I noget af tiden arbejder i par eller i grupper, så I når at sige så meget som muligt i løbet af timen, og underviseren går rundt mellem jer. På mange hold laver vi også øvelser, hvor I skal op og stå og gå rundt mellem hinanden.
Pga. covid-19 er det ikke muligt at undervise på den måde, for vi kan ikke holde nok afstand. Derfor tilpasser vi hele tiden vores metoder til den aktuelle situation, så vi kan holde afstand, og så det er sikkert for både undervisere og kursister at være på Studieskolen.
NB! Hvis vi på et tidspunkt må lukke for undervisning med fysisk fremmøde på grund af corona, fortsætter holdet med undervisning online. Det kan også ske, at vi må gennemføre en enkelt eller to undervisningsgange online - fx hvis underviseren skal testes.
Onlineundervisning på coronalukkede hold betragtes som almindelig gennemført undervisning, uanset om den enkelte deltager ønsker at gøre brug af denne mulighed eller ej. Hvis vi må ændre til onlineundervisning, bortfalder kompensation i form af tilbagebetaling eller erstatningsundervisning. Husk, at du altid kan annullere din tilmelding op til en uge, før dit kursus starter.
