International Business English

The syllabus for our International business English course is based on the CEFR, the Common European Framework of Reference which was developed to help teachers and students understand their level of English, and it provides us with the language – the vocabulary, the grammar, the pronunciation as well as the reading, writing, listening and speaking skills – that you are expected to know at each level. In addition, it also tells us how and what to teach at each level of your English learning.

All our lessons are created following the guidelines of the CEFR. Consequently, our syllabus is compliant with all major testing systems around the world, so you will learn English and, at the same time, prepare for important exams that will prove your proficiency.
