Who is it for?

This course focuses on improving real business communication using the most useful and functional English expressions such as making suggestions, giving opinions, agreeing, and asking questions.

This course is for anyone that uses English for business communication in meetings or
discussions, either online or face-to-face or both. It is appropriate for students at all levels
