Matters of Curriculum/Programme Design: Business English for German Businessmen


Paper published in Business English Special Interest Group (BESIG), Spring 2007, Issue 65 pages 17-19. International Association of Teachers of English as a Foreign Language (IATEFL).
 


INTRODUCTION

It is planned to operate tailor-made business English courses of two weeks duration for German businessmen in the UK. These businessmen will be from one company and would have been selected by the corporation concerned to attend the course.

 

The students concerned will be job-experienced learners as opposed to pre-experienced learners. Job-experienced learners are more likely to have a single set of needs relating to their job, even though the aims and objectives of the course will be a process of negotiation between the sponsoring organisation, the learner and the trainer. Job-experienced learners tend to be of an Intermediate level of English language and this will hopefully be confirmed by the placement test.
