BLTi Starter Course

Join us today for an eight-hour blended, synchronous and asynchronous course designed for EFL/ESL/ELT teachers migrating towards providing business English classes to professional clients. During this course, pre-class video materials will be provided which will be discussed and interpreted during your live interactive weekly session with one of our professionals. Your class size is limited to only six learners in order to provide you ample time for thorough interaction.


Although the duration of the course can be variable according to your involvement and usage of the contents, a total of 8 hours is suggested over a period of one month. At the end of the course, you will have all that you need to succeed as a business English teaching professional.
