  • Jozsef Ferencne Vagany United Kingdom When you teach business English, you actually teach English, but the difference lies in the language needed. In other words you teach English in a new context.It is helpful to adopt a content-based approach. The acqusition of the language should be from authentic business text and language.Learners of business English are expecting to express themselves properly in their business envioronment.So the focus should be on the needed writen and spoken language. 2014-12-04 22:12:18
