  • Global Business Class eWorkbook

    Posted by Charlie on 24 January, 2013

    Thought that the general English teachers got all the really cool stuff? Think again! We’ve taken the award-winning, adult general English course and developed a Business English component.

    Global Business Class eWorkbook takes the existing content from the Global eWorkbook and adds additional business English material including videos, business vocabulary practice, functional language exercises and skills work all in a business context.

    This can either be used on its own or in conjunction with the Global Coursebook to add a business flavour to a general English class.

  • Business Experience Winner

    Posted by Charlie on 23 January, 2012

    We are very pleased to announce that Magdalena Sulikowska is the winner of  The Business Experience competition that was run in conjunction with the Krakow University of Economics. Entrants were asked to provide a 60 second  pitch stating the business case for a product of their choice. We were very impressed with all the entries but Magdalena’s professional and clear delivery got her the winning place.

    Magdalena had this to say about her win: “I had a great time during making my 60 second challenge video, so when I got a message that I’m a winner of this competition I was delighted twice! Thanks to Macmillan Publishers that they decided to organize this competition for University of Economics in Krakow and that they give me a chance to see how they work in Oxford!”

    Business Experience Winner - Magdalena Sulikowska

    We are looking forward to welcoming Magdalena here in Oxford in early March. Many congratulations to all the entrants of the competition.

  • 2012 Resources

    Posted by Charlie on 17 January, 2012

    In 2012 our monthly e-lessons will be based on an article by Business English expert, Pete Sharma, for you to use in class. Each article will investigate something topical to the business world and provide links for further research, information and discussion. A pdf of the article will also be available for you to download and share with your students.

    These articles will offer you more flexibility in how you use them. Whether they form the basis of a reading lesson, a discussion activity, vocabulary presentation or extra homework you’ll find them an invaluable, relevant and practical tool for your business English teaching.

    Check out the first article – Blue Monday.
