The Business English course at MCSE is designed to provide students with the practical skills and communication level required to succeed in an English-speaking, international business environment.
Aims of the course
The Business English course at MCSE prepares students for working internationally in various business fields by:
- teaching learners how to use English in business environments
- studying a variety of business-related topics such as arranging meetings, job descriptions, staff motivation, recruitment, letter writing, e-business, business ethics
- developing key language skills and cross-cultural communication skills through business orientated tasks
- stimulating creative thinking and analysis by dealing with real-life work situations
This course is designed for students who can actively use the majority of grammatical structures in English and who can demonstrate their accuracy and fluency in the skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking.
Students at this level are also able to identify and produce texts of varying purposes and are aware of, for example, style, register and genre. Students are likely to be those with a professional interest in Business or those who are currently students of Business and/or Management.
Bespoke courses are also available, providing flexible packages of varying duration. Manchester Central School of English offers courses with optional modules to address specific needs. For example, in addition to the basic package of General English and Business English or Business English only, students may elect specialist modules such as Business Administration, Stock Control, Marketing or English for Legal Purposes.
The course is made available according to demand. The delivery and duration of the course is flexible and can be adapted to the requirements of students. An initial General English course before commencement of the Business English course may be necessary.
