Abstract

This paper aims to examine different techniques and approaches used in teaching and learning business English in the economic field. Besides applying the already well-known methods used in second language acquisition, we also tried to incorporate computer-mediated communication into the communicative approach. At all times, the choice of the methods and approaches used in teaching business English has focused on our students' needs in their vocation or job. We worked with two groups of students studying business English for the economic field and assessed their knowledge of the target language throughout the whole teaching/learning process. We evaluated the impact and results of each teaching approach, and finally decided on the best way of improving students' business English skills.
