Webinar: Business English materials – Where are we now? by Evan Frendo

Dear Colleagues,

IATEFL Poland and Evan Frendo, a freelance trainer, teacher trainer and author

have the pleasure to invite you to the webinar:

Business English materials – Where are we now?

which will take place on

Friday, 12th March 2021, between 8:30 and 9:30 CET.

Most big publishers produce business English materials, yet many trainers claim to rarely use them.

This raises lots of questions.

In this session I would like to briefly look at what we know about good practice in business English teaching today, ending with a checklist of key criteria. I will then use this checklist to examine a selection of recently published materials, and comment on possible discrepancies.

Note that this talk is based on a survey review of business English materials which I wrote for ELT Journal in 2019, available at

IATEFL Poland members have priority of registration for this webinar.
Do not delay. The number of participants is limited.

After the webinar all participants will receive a certificate of participation.
