Business English: the new English advanced course of Berlino Schule

Are you looking for a job in an international environment? Would you like to improve your current position in the company for which you are working? Business English at Berlino Schule is the perfect course for you.

When you start studying English at school, you immediately think that Shakespeare’s language is not difficult, at all. So you carry on learning it without any particular problem, talking to friends in everyday life or listening to songs which come directly from America or Great Britain. To sum up, you feel like an English native speaker. But how about in professional contexts? Are you really sure you can tackle a job interview?
Berlino Schule is here to provide you a Business English course!
The course will start on 14th February and it is open to anyone, who are interested in learning the specific vocabulary linked to the economic field, as well as the right expressions to use in the labour market. Just a prerequisite: you should have at least an advanced level of English. Whether you are not sure about your level, we will send you a test to define it.

COURSEWORK

Lessons will rotate around a range of different business topics and then proceed to address both the skills needed in a business environment as well as the language needed to put them into practice. A set of case studies will also be available for analysis, sparking discussions and speaking practice.
Among the topics, we find: developing a career, corporate life, outsourcing, investment banks and free trade.
The skills addressed will include: self-awareness, communication & assertiveness, time management and active listening.
The language focus springs from the above contexts and topics and includes:
– Vocabulary covering areas such as logistics; marketing; acronyms & affixes; investment jargon; collocations, expressions & metaphors of the business world.
– Grammar needed to use tentative & speculative language, express stance and add emphasis to sentences. It also encompasses a tense review, future forms, subordinating/coordinating conjunctions, phrasal/prepositional verbs.
Vocabulary and grammar will also be useful for the analysis of different types of written texts, such as professional biographies, newsletters articles, e-mails & letters, business proposals and financial reports.
Finally, following the analysis of case studies, discussions and speaking practice, including simulations of presentations and meetings, will also take place.

Viaggiatrice instancabile e lettrice insaziabile, amo tutto ciò che rappresenta evasione fisica e mentale. Gli aeroporti e le librerie sono i miei luoghi preferiti. Adoro la sabbia, l'odore della benzina, gli ostelli sovraffollati, le supercazzole, i film trash e la polemica fine a se stessa. I miei sport preferiti sono il disegno e il trekking in solitaria. Cervello germanico e cuore latino, di giorno passeggio per le strade di Berlino, di notte sogno il Brasile.
