A Typical Week Teaching English to Business English Students
The typical week teaching business English students is quite different from regular schools as classes are mostly held when students aren’t working and so classes take place during weekday evenings and on weekends. The teacher will usually have Monday and Tuesday as days off and will come to the school at around 3pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to plan lessons and get materials ready. Classes during the week start at 5pm and run for 1 hour. There will then be a 15 minute break before another 1 hour class. Teachers may also be required to travel off-site to the students’ office for classes. Weekends are the busiest times of the week with classes running from 9am to 6pm with breaks between classes and for lunch. There will usually be a weekly teachers meeting and teacher training session.
During the class, the teacher will introduce new language in a controlled setting, giving examples, drilling and eliciting suitable alternatives. Students will then practice with some activities in the course book and then in small groups, with the teacher monitoring and correcting, after which less controlled production of the language will begin through pair work and group work. You will be teaching all 4 skills, covering areas such as delivering presentations, participating in meetings, report writing, emailing and taking part in business conferences calls.
