Professionals learning English want to talk. They want to develop from structured activities and direct language input to talking about various aspects of their jobs and vocational backgrounds. They need a free stage in their classes, when genuine communication, as opposed to formal, text-book styled exchanges, begins to take place.
Talking Business in Class provides teachers with a wealth of activities and suggestions for student-centred conversation classes. It is designed for use with students:
- who need conversation as part of an ESP course
- who want to talk about their occupation and work-related issues
- who want general conversation practice to supplement their professional conversation skills
