Which skills? Which English?
Helping learners to develop the language, business and intercultural skills for an ever-changing business world
The aims of the IATEFL BESIG Pre-Conference Event are to:
- identify the business skills, soft skills and intercultural skills that our business English learners need to develop to be able to function effectively in international business.
- consider the role that English as a Lingua Franca plays in the international business environment and examine trainer attitudes towards errors and feedback.
- question what skills trainers need to have in order to be able to help our learners develop the relevant skills in our learners.
- look at the materials available to both learners and trainers which can be used to develop learners' language, business and intercultural skills
Six experienced business English practitioners will guide participants through each of these topics, presenting their own ideas but also encouraging discussion and self-reflection. The speakers will also suggest activities that can be used with learners to help them develop these skills.
The full schedule will be available soon.
