Established in 2004, Business Talk is run by Sue Swift, who has been an EFL teacher, teacher trainer and coursebook writer for over forty years.
She has taught in areas as different as the UK, Scandinavia, Japan and the Middle East as well as in Italy where she is now based. In that time Sue has taught and developed programmes for a wide range of different courses, but has always specialised in the two areas of Business English and Teacher Training and Development.
Although our offices are in Milan, Italy, our clients come from all over the world, benefiting from the online versions of all the courses we run.
The courses we run for teachers (see our website for full details) include:
Language Development Courses for Non-Native English Speaking Teachers. These include general language improvement courses, courses to improve your classroom language, and courses for teachers needing to take an academic course in English which demands a high level of written English.
General Teacher Development Courses, Seminars and Webinars on a wide range of topics – Lesson Planning, Developing your Students’ Fluency, Classroom Management, Teaching Intermediate Learners, Error and Feedback, Teaching Business English, Teaching One to One, Teaching Monolingual Groups – and many, many more.
Individual Coaching Schemes to focus on specific problems you are having with your courses.
Courses for the Cambridge English Teaching Delta Modules scheme – our particular speciality. These include:
- Full courses for Modules One, Two and Three for teachers starting the modules “from scratch”.
- Revision and Exam Preparation Courses for those who have already taken a Module One course (or self prepared) but need a refresher and extra help before the exam.
- A Module Two Preparation Course for teachers who want to prepare for and get a “head start” before starting the full Module Two course – at any centre.
- Referral Coaching Courses for those who have been referred in Modules Two or Three and need some extra coaching before submitting the referral assignment.
Our course blog, The Delta Course, gives full details of all these courses and also includes a weekly extract for one of them to give you a “taster” of what they contain.
