This course will focus on Business English reading and listening skills to foster students with, a 'frontier spirit', a global perspective, and the ability to contribute to the business world in which English is considered as a language for business communication.
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 in preparation to achieve the CEFR B1 level (550-780) at the TOEIC® Listening and Reading score.

The independent study outside of class will help prepare students for task-based application within the class and will include written as well as online homework tasks.
