English as a business lingua franca - recent research and implications

Evan Frendo


Research into English as a business lingua franca continues to play an influential role in ESP and business English teaching, and many trainers find it hard to keep up to date with developments. In this session I will summarize some recent research, and discuss what implications there are, if any, for trainers and their clients.


Evan Frendo has been involved in business English teaching since 1993. He is based in Berlin, Germany, but his work, at least before COVID, took him to many places in Europe and Asia. Nowadays he divides his time between training, writing and consulting, almost all of it online. For more information see www.e4b.de.
