Designing Motivating Activities For Business English Correspondence With/Without The New Technologies
AbstractBusiness English correspondence (BEC) syllabus is essentially structured on the elements of a traditional writing course, students acquiring skills linked with formal letter, fax and e-mail writing, enquiries, complaints and reports, job ads and tourism leaflets as well as more indirect skills about graph interpretation, formality level and register, intercultural aspects. Traditional approaches to business correspondence (BC) teaching/learning make classes less motivating and attractive. Moreover, application of the new technologies is an inherent part of modern BC. Starting from these premises, the current paper will showcase several activities and NT tools likely to produce a more motivating, cooperative and collaborative BEC learning/teaching in keeping with modern trends in BC as well as improved outcomes in terms of student satisfaction related to the teaching methodology variable.
