Using texts in the Business English Classroom - Karen Richardson


Who is it for?

Join teachers around the world to watch live talks from some of the biggest names in English language teaching.


In this webinar we will look at different kinds of texts that can be used to aid and support the teaching of business English. I will talk about where and how these texts can be sourced, and how to make creative and effective use of them once you have found them. Additionally, I will take a brief look at some copyright issues that teachers may be in danger of infringing, and talk about how to keep our lessons interesting, relevant, up to date, and at the same time, on the right side of the law.
