Let 4 Business English help you achieve your communication goals and succeed in the globalized business world.

Oral Communications

Many English as a Foreign Language (EFL) learners become comfortable reading English texts, but struggle with speaking in English. This is particularly true for those who have had limited opportunities to speak with native-English speakers.

If you're looking for more personalized instruction, consider our Conversational Business English course. This one-on-one tutoring is tailored to your individual goals and needs, and will provide you with even more practice speaking in English.
