IV APIBA BUSINESS ENGLISH ANNUAL CONFERENCE

Teaching Business English: The South in Dialogue with Global Voices

Enrollment now OPEN!

 

Evan Frendo

Teaching business English – some perspectives from the North

Our business English teaching profession has many voices.  At the centre are the learners and teachers who are actively involved in teaching, but we all know that there are many other stakeholders outside the classroom, including academic institutions, clients, publishers and testing organisations. We also know that some of these stakeholders have very loud voices. In this session I would like to discuss the nature of business English teaching by considering some of these different voices. All come from projects I have recently been involved in. First I will talk about business English teacher training courses in China which I have been running for several years, and discuss how business English teachers operate in one of the largest economies in the world. We will then travel to Europe and peek into some of the processes that take place in the world of materials development, both from an author’s perspective working for global publishers, but also from an in-house corporate training perspective. Finally, we will look at a maritime English training project in the Asia Pacific region, and consider the relationship between business English and ESP. My aim in this session is hopefully to get us all thinking a little about similarities and differences across the globe.
