This second edition of our Annual Business English Conference is the result of the productive work done by APIBA BESIG since April 2015 and the only one of its kind both locally and regionally. The theme of this second edition is Teaching Business English beyond language.
Business English training is rooted in principles and practices which differ significantly from those of general English teaching. Globalization imposes the need to perform in English in many job positions. BE training needs redefining to meet the new challenges in today\’s business landscape. This calls for a pedagogy that resonates with the demands of English as the largest lingua franca.
This conference was born in 2017 to enhance the BE training sector, which has traditionally been invisible, unattended and neglected. It sets out to open up an area of knowledge and research that gives BE professionals tools to enhance their practice, to gain added value, and to stand out. The ultimate aim is that the BE professional practice is more and more aligned with what the business sector needs from a language trainer.
