The Business English curriculum is a specialized curriculum which teaches specific content, but ensures the practice of the language. It’s the difference between proficiency in social language and proficiency in academic or professional settings; the later taking more time for a student to demonstrate proficiency.
*The Business English Program is a rigorous program that requires the student to have a strong command of general English skills. If the student does not test at the appropriate level, s/he needs to go over the levels they test at. This is to ensure they have the pre-required skills necessary to succeed in this specialized course.

These contents are put into practice through the course book materials and extra ones such as online lectures.
By the end of the level, students will listen to conversations in a way they will be able to pose questions to guide follow up negotiations. In addition, they will be able to clarify professional misunderstandings and understand dialogues taking part in teleconferences and processing discussions of factors for success.
