I’ve never felt comfortable teaching “business English.” But, that doesn’t mean I’ve been able to avoid it. So, I made up my own worksheets that I use to combine my own mix of absurdity and useful phrases and grammar.
There is a blog post about how I teach from these worksheets. Of course, you can do anything you want with them.
If you think they might be useful to you read all the way through them before giving them to your students. They are full of things that I think are funny (there’s a threat to stick a bottle up someone’s behind, for example) but which might not fit every student.
- Describing processes with the passive. My best set of worksheets, hands down. I like the ridiculous stories and they include the most structured grammar review, moving from the passive in general, all the way up through “that shouldn’t have been done.”
