Getting down to details (FAQ)
Business English is considered a special category within the general study of English due to its specific vocabulary and business language. A good understanding of English in general, as well as a basic understanding of the vocabulary within a field, is necessary to build a successful career on an international level. This understanding is needed for both written and oral communication, such as e-mail, letters, telephone calls, meetings, presentations and many other forms of communication. Advanced Business English skills will significantly improve your employment opportunities.
It may seem like Business English and everyday English would be so similar it might not be worth taking both. This is not the case! Even if you have a great understanding of English, there are likely still many gaps in your understanding of the language for the workplace.
Business English courses like ours focus on skills needed at work, such as specific vocabulary you may need during telephone calls, negotiations, meetings, etc., and on general topics related to international business relations.
One advantage of the flexible online Business English course is that you do not have to commute at fixed times. With Lingoda, you’ll have complete control over your class schedule. This is one part of how you can customise your learning schedule with us.
Whether during your lunch break in the office, from your favourite café or simply from home, learning Business English with an online language course at Lingoda can happen at any time and at any location.
Lingoda students can join our round-the-clock live group lessons (with 3-5 students) and learn about topics that are made for real-life success. In both cases, our qualified native English-speaking teachers are ready to help you learn and with their experience, commitment and know-how, you’ll be mastering a language in no time!
Just the basics: a strong internet connection, a computer to connect to the internet and the free video conferencing tool Zoom.
Online Business English lessons happen when you want them to! That’s the beauty of learning with Lingoda. Our 24/7 group classes cover all time slots as we have teachers based across all time zones. Create a schedule that works for you and feel free to change it up as you need to.
Even if you’re a beginner, you’ll learn quickly with our immersive methods. Each class combines speaking practice and situational training so that what you learn in the classroom can immediately be applied outside of it. We make sure that every sentence, activity and topic builds toward meaningful communication. Your needs are our focus whenever we create new, level-appropriate materials.
Great question! CEFR stands for Common European Framework of Reference for Languages. It is an internationally recognised framework that describes language ability from A1-C2. A1 being basic and moving up to C2 native-level proficiency. The CEFR focuses on how a student can communicate rather than just how much knowledge the student has, making it a practical framework that aligns with the real world.
All of our teachers are native speakers, no exceptions. They are also highly-qualified. We are strict with hiring only teachers that have years of experience and can provide the highest quality teaching. Our teachers are also trained with the Lingoda method and standard, so you can learn Business English online smoothly.
Our students love learning with a variety of teachers because it means they are exposed to the range of accents present in the real world. This is just one of the many ways that the Lingoda classroom gets you to real fluency.
All materials are unique and specially created by Lingoda experts to align with CEFR. You can download the class materials for free and use them at any time. After class, you’ll also find a quiz and some exercises that you can use to help refresh and practice your new skills.
We offer a free placement test that we encourage you to take before you begin learning. The length of the test depends on your level. The higher your level, the more complicated the questions will become. You can take the test here.
Yes! You receive a certificate for each level you finish with Lingoda. Our certificates are issued in accordance with the CEFR and accepted by many institutions worldwide. To get a certificate, you’ll have to complete 90% of your classes in a module for a CEFR language (this does not include Business English).
Through our exciting collaboration with Cambridge Assessment English, we also offer our English learners the opportunity to complete the prestigious Linguaskill from Cambridge test. The test is administered online so you can take it anywhere, at any time. Check our Cambridge partnership page for more information.
