This specialist Business Pathway has 36 activities
especially designed to help with the business
aspect of Academic English. Each activity is
interactive and fun with in-depth
information for essay Writing
and specialist vocabulary.


These activities are broken up into 4 units

Unit 1 - Thinking about my essay and getting started.
Includes understanding the focus of the essay question,
planning the work and starting to write something.

Unit 2 - Finding information for my essay and understanding it.
Introducing useful learning strategies and how to find important points.

Unit 3 - Organising the paragraphs in my essay.
My essay needs clear, separate paragraphs that contain an element of the argument that answers the essay question. The point of each paragraph is made clearer to the reader when there is a Topic Sentence.

Unit 4 - Using specialist vocabulary.
Takes words that are commonly used in formal English when writing about business-related subjects and gives you a chance to practise using them. It builds up your specialist vocabulary. You can practise using words that mean the same thing and those that mean the opposite as well as those that sound the same or similar but mean something different. It builds your knowledge about what words go together. You can also practise choosing the right grammatical form of the word and changing informal English into formal for an academic essay.

These e-packs are a fun, flexible and interactive way of learning with pedagogically-sound exercises.
