I took the English for Business course and I loved it. It´s very complete and clear. Not only do they explain everything but also they give you external resources that you can check. Thank you to the kind and professional team Premier TEFL! I really recommend it.

Questions and Answers

What does TBE stand for?

TBE stands for Teaching Business English.

What is Business English?

Business English is the type of language and communication styles used in a business context. These include finance and banking, international trade, law, politics, all types of commerce and various office settings. 

Teaching Business English is much more than vocabulary and grammar…it considers all types of professional scenarios such as meetings, presentations, negotiating, email and report writing as well as socializing and small talk. 

Who learns Business English?

Business English is important for anyone who wishes to work in an environment that communicates with the English speaking world. Business English learners are career-focused and often very driven.

How do I get a job teaching Business English?

There are no prerequisite qualifications to become a Business English teacher, however you should hold an internationally recognised TEFL qualification and have some teaching experience. Having a commercial or business background will help your employment chances, since you’ll be familiar with the vocabulary, communication styles and etiquette already. 

Taking a professional development course in teaching Business English will help you understand how to get the best results with your class.

How much do Business English teachers get paid?

Business English teachers can expect to earn between US$20 – $40 per hour. This will depend on class size, previous experience and the country / origin of your learners.

Is it hard to teach Business English?

Teaching Business English can be challenging, particularly if you have little or no commercial experience. The most successful Business English teachers have extensive knowledge of the industry they teach about. That said, even without a business background, a fluent English speaker can equip a Business English learner with strong foundations of how to communicate in a professional context.

How do you teach Business English?

Teaching Business English involves preparing learners for many types of professional scenarios including meetings, presentations, negotiations, email and report writing plus socializing and small talk. It is much more than simply teaching industry-specific vocabulary.

Successful Business English teachers will follow these 5 key tips:

  1. Have clear learner-defined goals
  2. Have clarity about context and learner industry / sectors
  3. Keep it specific and choose relevant materials
  4. Be flexible (you may need to go off plan more regularly than with other learner groups)
  5. Set a professional tone

I chose 168 hours course initially but it was too hard for me so I contacted one of the staffs and asked if I can change the course. They... were very helpful and quickly responded to my request. With the 120 hours course I learned lots of new practical skills that I will be able to use when I teach English :)read more

I'd definitely recommend Premier to others, everything is very organized and the curriculum is perfectly paced for self-studying.There's a... quiz after every module and most of the questions are open-ended, so it's quite a lot of work, but it's worth it, because since it's required to pass all of the assessments to get the certificate it means that the certificate itself is of high quality.And aside from the certificate, the material was very helpful and got me to improve on my teaching skills by applying what I learn in class.Upon reflecting on it I realize that the teaching techniques I'd developed on my own through time and experience were already mentioned in the course, so I'd imagine that the new things I learned in a few hours just by taking the course would've taken me years to learn on my own from experience.But there's one problem.. They don't mention at the begining that you have to pay 53$ for the digital certificate, just to get the PDF. It's really annoying finiding out like that at the end of the course, but if you already know before purcahsing the course then it's not as bad, so make sure you add 53$ to the price of every course you might consider when you're browsing, just generally add an extra 53$ to your budget before getting into anything.read more
