UNIVERSITY BUSINESS ENGLISH LEARNERS AND THEIR NEEDS

B. Klimova

University of Hradec Kralove (CZECH REPUBLIC)
At present, thanks to globalization and internationalization, more and more students who graduate from a university in their country have a chance to work in multinational companies where English is usually the language of communication. Therefore, if they want to work and succeed in working in such companies, their English, and particularly business English, must be at a very good proficiency level. In order to help them succeed in their foreign studies and job market, teachers of English for Specific Purposes (ESP) try to meet their language needs. The purpose of this article is thus to discuss the skills and language structures these students would need in their future workplaces in order to succeed in the present competitive labour market. This is done both theoretically and practically on the basis of the literature survey and author’s own experience in teaching pre-experienced and job-experience students.
