This course develops informal discussion skills, formal speaking skills, the ability to work in groups, and university-level writing. The goal of this course is to measurably build on students’ English language skills by engaging them in listening, speaking, reading, writing, and grammar activities that are relevant to real-world encounters in the workplace environment. Students will learn to apply vocabulary with correct grammar related to American life and business in communication, prepare and present presentations as well as understand and apply business concepts related to customer service, project management, networking, telecommunications, and common American workplace customs.
