In higher education, Business English (BE) courses are often based on important workplace-related communication skills as students have little work experience. This practical workshop will show how to develop skill-based lessons on global issues relating to economics and the business world, an example being “Burgernomics” to also incorporate critical skills. The takeaway will be a strategy for creating your own courses without having to depend on a coursebook full of outdated topics that few students are interested in.
