Popis, cíl a formy výuky:Students will be provided with a program of study to improve their command of English in order to their enhance business communications and so improve their career prospects. This means that while theoretical aspects of written and verbal communication will be presented the course will be an active one where the students will use and polish these skills. The subject matter used to this purpose will be relevant and of a contemporary nature and so it therefore follows that the course is of a participatory nature requiring students to be up to date. The methods used to evaluate a student’s progress on the course will include the assessment of written work produced throughout the semester, contributions to discussions in class and a written exam followed by an essay written under time constraints and a one to one discussion connected to the subject matter of the essay.
