Business English Grammar for Non-0Native Speakers

Strengthen Business English Grammar principles in a simple, easy to understand and comprehend, format.

Dana Spicer

English assessment scores illustrate the need for speaking, listening and writing improvement.  The underlying challenge is the demand  for reinforcement of basic grammatical principles, therefore, ‘BEE’ includes a supplemental focus using BEG, Business English Grammar for Non-Native Speakers.

The initial 50 hours of 'BEE' will provide a learning environment for Level 2 and Level 3 participants, (*ALTE assessment scores ranging from 2 through 3+).

Course goals include tackling some of the most common challenges for Thai learners of English like missing verbs, plural "s", verb conjugation over twelve tenses, "ever-never" and modal verbs, plus overcoming written and spoken English production issues including word order and phrase building.

 Learning Outcomes:

  1. Communicate by ‘sending-receiving-responding’ and questioning for better understanding
  2. Identify and apply grammatical principles to spoken and written English
  3. Differentiate between statements and questions through a better understanding of the differences in tone and stressed phonemes in Thai and English.
  4. Manage written correspondence, (email), by developing a system of continued improvement of common written responses and descriptions.
  5. Plan, create, rehearse and deliver a well-organized presentation
  6. Explain in more abstract detail, complex concepts in English.
