My main interest this year and since I started teaching in Switzerland is Business English. I teach in banks, companies and professionals in various sectors (real estate, insurance, pharmaceuticals).

I must say I really enjoy these classes and the new turn my teaching is taking, for the reason that I am also learning alongside them!

You can find some ideas on Business English classes in posts I have written on my blog. I have gathered them all on this page for easier finding.

  • Word of the Week – From My Adult Classes: This is my first attempt in presenting what I think turned out into a great idea with our classes – it even developed into the main topic of a workshop I gave later on in Zug, Switzerland!

  2. Hi, Vicky! I’m a Business English teacher and I’ve been looking for great links to add to my resource. I like the use of advertisements because they are short videos but they have a powerful impact on my business students. It can be a venue for discussion about the ad’s messages.

    1. Hi Cynthia!

      Thanks for your comment – I think that the combination of audio and visual in advertisements, as well as the messages they hide or bring out, are truly a great source of discussion, as you mention : )

  5. Hi Vicky!

    Thanks for the informative post, which I’ll be sure to share with our tutors! We’ve been looking into ways of helping our business English students build more points of contact with the language in their daily lives – both at work and at home. Here’s a recent 25-tip post on learning strategies, which I penned for my own teaching blog:
