Business English Courses

Our Business English course focuses on the language and communication skills that are relevant to learners from a range of business backgrounds.

English is the most useful language in the world for business. This part-time course offers students who are intending to work in the UK or abroad the language and communication skills required to achieve success in their current and future professional life.



At Global School of English we recognize the importance of giving you really helpful and practical classes where you will study the language across a variety of business topics and increase your range of business-related vocabulary. Role plays and case studies will help you put your new vocabulary into practice. You will look at current news stories and business papers to keep your knowledge of various industries up-to-date.  The practical elements of the course will help you improve your written communication and enable you to take an active part in meetings and contribute effectively to negotiations and presentations

The teachers make me laugh and they also make me feel that they are concerned for me, not just as a student of English but as a person too. When you are far away from home that’s very important. At the end of every week, they ask what you liked and what they can do to help you improve your English skills.
