English for Specific Purposes-Business (ESP-Business) is a dynamic, growing field in the world of English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). With the globalization of trade, companies and individuals are increasingly turning to educational specialists from the field of ESP-Business to develop and provide high quality learning opportunities in language and communication skills. At the same time, the need for technological competence in business is expanding. Far-reaching innovations in technology and telecommunications have rendered the global marketplace of today's "Information Age" an ever-expanding world of networked businesses, stock market ups and downs, news agencies, independent editorials, and trade associations. Knowing how to tap the wealth of information resources on the Internet and how to analyze and communicate that information effectively are critical skills in today's competitive world of international business.
This web site is intended for educators working in the area of ESP-Business with secondary or tertiary level learners. The projects in this web site incorporate key business topics and help learners:
1) Gain experience with research and evaluation of business-related information on the web. 2) Examine emerging business and employment opportunities through the use of market analyses, industry analyses, and company profiles. 3) Become familiar with common business communication practices related to email and web-based discussions.
A short glossary of some business and Internet terminology and a resource list of business web sites that are linked to the projects are also available on this web site.
