To improve students' business English reading and listening skills, this course primarily focuses on the TOEIC test (which is based on Business English). Students will learn the foundation to learn the English language and productive and receptive skills. Students will also learn TOEIC test strategies alongside general English skills; English skills will include speaking, listening, reading, grammar and vocabulary.
The aim of this course is to prepare students for the TOEIC tests in June.
The final goal of this course is English communication skills and knowledge equivalent to a TOEIC score of 500 points.
