Inhalt: Business isn’t just for business majors. Whether you are studying engineering, cultural studies, sustainability or one of the other majors, you will be part of business. In other words, you will be communicating your ideas to people around the world. But how adequate is your English? This seminar focuses on the international and virtual happenings of business. Using culturally appropriate, informative, and persuasive communication styles in spoken as well as written English is the key to successful business. Emphasis will be placed on all competences: written (e.g. concise minutes, persuasive business communication, etc.), spoken (pronunciation enhancement, rhetorical strategies for presenting) listening (understanding accents, etc.) and reading (strategies and language used) . In addition culturally appropriate verbal and non-verbal communication (direct and indirect communication styles, use of gestures, time, and space) will be applied.
