    Business English students are some of the most common ESP learners. As the business world continues to become a close-knit global community, there’ll continue to be men and women from around the world learning English in a professional capacity.

    Learning business English for the first time can be quite challenging. There are a number of factors to consider before you step into this exciting field. You’ll not only need to be an English speaker, but also have a basic competency in business and finance as well.

    Because business English students are learn English for professional purposes, you tend to have higher expectations than the average ESL student.

    2. Aviation English

    With English being the official language of air travel, it’s important that all airline personnel can speak and understand English. Your primary focus with these lessons will be speaking and listening.

    Since pilots and air traffic controllers will be expected to communicate in English over the radio, it’s crucial for them to understand one another. In the real world, students will be expected to listen to English over a possibly distorted radio, so listening is an important part of the course.

    We will test your comprehension using resources that demonstrate a range of native and non-native English accents. You’ll also want to do lots of recorded speaking activities so you can hear your own speech and make quick corrections based on your guidance.

    3. Tourism English

    As with aviation English, students learning English for tourism purposes don’t need to spend a lot of time improving their writing proficiency levels but will need to learn to do the following:

    • Use a wide range of basic vocabulary words related to health, medicine, travel, money, food and time.
    • Be able to express yourself in basic sentences.
    • Understand simple spoken sentences.
    • Know how to communicate in most situations you’ll encounter while traveling.

    The goal of teaching tourism English is to give students a basic working knowledge of the language so they can read directions and maps, understand basic words and phrases and speak intelligible sentences. Tourism English is the type of English that’s found in most beginner level ESL textbooks but it is not always taught as well as we teach it at Target on English

    4. Medical English

    Medical English continues to be a growing field as more pharmacists, doctors and nurses leave their home countries and work in English-speaking countries or countries with large international communities such as the UAE.

    Learning medical English can be tough if you don’t have a background in life sciences like biology, anatomy and physiology. In addition, medical English lessons should involve vocabulary-building exercises to help students remember difficult medical terms. You will also focus on building speaking and listening skills, as well as improving reading skills so that can help you understand those challenging medical journals.

    In summary

    As the world becomes more and more connected, we’ll continue to see more students learning English for professional or immigration purposes.
