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 : )
