This course focuses on correct English usage in a business environment and provides a comprehensive review of grammar, punctuation, and style, as well as business spelling and vocabulary development. The course materials are presented in small, easily manageable learning segments.
Why study business English? Employers continually report that job applicants with appropriate language skills are hard to find. This course is intended to help you refine your everyday language and make it effective for business purposes. Business English is one of the required courses needed to receive an Applied Business Technology/Office Administration Certificate at BC public colleges.
Your study of business English is divided into 21 chapters. Each chapter begins with a set of learning objectives followed by a brief pre-test. The assigned readings, together with the reinforcement exercises, are your principal learning activities. A post-test has been provided at the end of each chapter to test your understanding of the concepts you have learned. Should you require further practice, a set of supplementary exercises is included for each chapter.
