Business English Teaching: Needs Analysis

Business English Teaching: Needs Analysis

The stepping stone of any Business English course is an accurate Needs Analysis, or, as N. Chomsky famously defined it – a target situation analysis.

One of the main differences between Business English and General English is that when learners deal with the former, language is seen as a communication tool they use in order to obtain practical results in real-life business contexts. Consequently, the motivation to learn English comes out of these immediate needs, rather than an external objective like passing an exam.

An effective Business English course must focus on two major components: relevant communication skills and relevant business language.

An effective Needs Analysis should be able to identify the specific and personal linguistic needs of any learner. And in order to accurately identify the training gap, as E Frendo asserts, i.e. the difference between the target situation and the present situation, teachers must be highly skilled in finding the appropriate tools for each Learner.
