Business English-I (BE-I)

About This Course

An acceptable level of proficiency in the use of English in all its aspects and skills-listening comprehension, speaking, reading comprehension and writing- is a requisite for all professionals including management accountants.

The course in English communication skills consists of three stages (course units):
elementary (BE I)
intermediate (BE II)
and advanced (i.e. Professional Communication) (PC).
BE I and BE II cover all aspects of English with the intermediate stage containing a higher level of instructional material than that of the elementary stage, and the advanced stage focusing on elements of professional communication.
