Business Start-up is a two-level Business English Course which takes beginners and false beginners from basic English up to the point where they can start preparing for the BEC Preliminary examination. Business Start-up 2 covers competencies from Council of Europe level A2 and leads into B1.
The Business Start-up Teacher's Books contain detailed notes on every lesson with added tips and advice on how to manage and extend the course material. Additional communication activities in each lesson offer even more communicative language practice. The Teacher's Books also contain a placement/end of course multiple choice test and progress tests after every three units. The Business Start-up website offers a downloadable list of 'Can-do' statements for every unit based on competencies from the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages, allowing students the chance to reflect on what they've learnt and evaluate their own progress.
