Business English B1 intermediate (online)

This course is for you if you are comfortable with speaking English in everyday situations, but you find it difficult to participate in work meetings or talk about more complex issues at work.
We will concentrate mostly on conversations, so you will have the opportunity to widen your vocabulary and improve your speaking skills.
We will choose our topics together, based on what you and your classmates need.  These could be for example:
- speaking English in meetings (expressing opinions, agreeing, disagreeing, asking questions, giving explanations etc.),
- speaking English at a job interview,
- making a presentation in English, or
- writing emails in English.

To learn about our chosen topics, we will use a book about Business Vocabulary which can be purchased online after our first session. For those who have the time to practice outside our sessions, there will be an opportunity to do exercises from the book at home.
We will also work with some interesting and inspiring talks (like TED talks) and discuss whether we agree or disagree with what the presenters say. You will need to find time to listen to these talks at home, prior to each session.  The talks will be somewhere between 3-15 minutes long.

Eva Woodhouse

I lived most of my adult life in Australia and England. I moved to Denmark a few years ago, as my husband was offered a temporary assignment here.  We both fell in love with Denmark, especially the much more family-friendly lifestyle, and decided to put down roots here.

In my previous career, I worked as a commercial lawyer and contract negotiator for 10 years. During these times, I helped entrepreneurs establish new businesses and assisted existing businesses with negotiating contracts, resolving disputes and addressing every-day operational issues. 

As part of staying in Denmark, I decided to try something new and exciting, so here I am. 

I speak four languages, Danish being my latest acquisition. Both for learning new languages and for maintaining my existing languages, I use various techniques that have been found effective by research on language learning and learning in general.  Some of these techniques are for reducing learning time, some are for better memory and some are for motivation.  I think, motivation is one of the most important ingredients for learning a language and we have to keep it going if we want to succeed.

I hope I can share some of these techniques with you and help you travel further on your English journey.
