HI! I live and teach in Beijing, China. Most of my students are adults.(But also kids) Iīve designed a series of Business English lessons for use in Beijing, but they are easily adapted to any nationality. Iīm a teacher on a budget, so Iīm always looking for creative ways to use free resources. Celta, 2012.

UPPER INTERMEDIATE BUSINESS ENGLISH - GOING GLOBAL - LESSON 1 OF 2
This is the latest in my Business English series. Although I am in China, I try to make these lessons readily adaptable to other first language environments.
