About the talk

With English having become a lingua franca and business exchanges occurring mostly among non-native speakers, it is time to revisit the role of grammar in Business English. To that effect, I conducted a study to collect data regarding the weight assigned to grammar, as well as the methodology and materials employed in BE sessions delivered in Buenos Aires at present.

The video is Tatiana Golechkova's, not Virginia Lopez Griolia's. Please change, thanks!

I liked this talk. I just want to say that BELF students usually want to demonstrate competency through standardized testing. This 'makes' grammar important to them. Also, many students want to speak like a native speaker. It's a desire they bring to the sessions. These two factors impact the content choices and delivery strategies.
