If asked, any learner would say yes to the following two questions: Would you like to see your progress? Yes. Would you like to have a personalised course that meets your needs? Yes.

As teachers though, we need to be sure that we can meet these two needs without having to reinvent the wheel every single time. In this workshop we’ll look at business English training from three perspectives: from effective needs analysis, assessment and materials and activities. In this workshop you’ll get a good grounding on these three aspects and experiment with different formats activities.
