Purpose: to prepare group of students for the ‘English for Business (EfB) Level 1’. The total length of the course is 12 weeks. The program is divided into so called ‘modules’ which are as follows:
Module 1 – November 3 through November 14:
Basic English, review of elementary questions and vocabulary items.
Module 2 – November 17 through November 28:
Reinforcing everything learned in Module 1.
Module 3 – December 1 through December 12:
Basic Business English.
Modules 4 through Module 6: to be determined
The course runs from Monday through Friday, 9 units a 45 minutes. I’ll post the exact times later.
Very important: After each module we have to give the class a written test paper which has to be graded using a 100 point system. As of now, we are looking for an English trainer who is going to do the first two modules while Bruce Finlayson is doing Module 3.
Since EfBLCCI is quite similar to the TOEIC test, I suggest we primarily use TOEIC and TOEIC Bridge materials in the classroom. One of the reasons for this is that there seems to be much more TOEIC material available than there is LCCI material. Here are a number of books you can use:
In addition, I highly recommend you obtain a copy of our Printable English Tests Printable English Tests since they come in a handy PDF format and with the permission to photocopy them for use in any of your classes.

Please let me know what you think and we can discuss all the details here on the forum.
