“The Business English course has been really useful. All of my skills have improved a lot, especially writing and speaking!”




“In Business English, we can learn about grammar and related vocabulary, but also about different national and cultural approaches in business communication, humor, and non-verbal communication. This class is very helpful for students who want to learn something new for their future. It helps us gain self-awareness.”
