In “English for Business and Entrepreneurship”, you will learn about topics and language for business and entrepreneurship. You will explore business English through authentic readings and video lectures while learning about business vocabulary, concepts, and issues. 

We recommend this course if you are thinking about starting a business but don’t know where to start or you need help building a business plan. This course is designed for folks who are English language learners but is great for any beginning entrepreneurs.

The course is separated into four units:

  • Unit 1 provides an introduction to entrepreneurship by examining ideas, products, and opportunities.
  • Unit 2  reviews the basics of market research, including how to identify an opportunity.
  • Unit 3 focuses on business plans, why these plans are important and will give you a chance to practice composing a business plan.
  • Unit 4 presents basics for funding a business and will help you create a persuasive presentation, or pitch, based on a business plan.
