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

I HAD originally tried this wit...

ADVANCED BUSINESS ENGLISH - WHAT MAKES AN EFFECTIVE LEADER (LEADERSHIP)
This is the next in my Business English series -- Because of the structure of the project I´m creating this for, this is in the form of 2 lesson plans that make up a 2-part unit.

CROSS-CULTURAL JOB CANDIDATES
I teach adults in Beijing, China. I often find that my older students are as interested in cross-cultural exchange as they are in language learning. So, I designed this lesson for them, encouraging them to think about "WHY" certain business decisions are made. At the end of the activity, any candidate they choose is ok, but they need to be able to ...
